White Huns

The White Huns or Hephthalites were an eastern branch of Huns, who conquered parts of Iran and India about same time when their western counterparts under Attila were ravaging over Europe. According to Byzantine historian Procopius, the White Huns were much more civilized, noble and fair than their western counterparts - in fact, he tells they were completely different culture and people, neither nomadic nor barbaric, yet nevertheless somehow of the same name and lineage as Euroasian Huns.

Not much else is known about these mysterious people, thus apart general 'oriental' feel, I took great artistic liberty in imagining how their ancient warriors, armors and weapons might have looked like.
