Concept for a farima warrior from the Empire of Mali, which dominated West Africa during the Middle Ages. The farima ("brave man") were basically the Malian answer to European knights of the time, as they were aristocratic horsemen who commanded cavalry units in the army.

This is a follow-up to the ancient Egyptian war chariot I submitted earlier. I will do more warriors from Africa and maybe other parts of the world after this.
