Painting for Prophet

Today (May 20th) is Everyone Draw Mohammed Day - a day dedicated to the proposition that religious beliefs should not be allowed to over-rule freedom of speech. I could have drawn a stick-man prophet but I thought you'd rather see an attempt at a white metal leader of the forces of Islam.

So here he is - the leader of the Hejaz Arabs in the early 7th century.

Mohammed is the figure on the left on the white horse. The figures are by Irregular Miniatures and are in 1/300th scale so Mo and his horse stand about 1cm tall. When he's not busy laying down the law in seventh century Arabia, he'll serve as a general in my 18th century Ottoman Turkish army.
