I hadn't forgotten about them I thought they were not current. I just missed them on the Italeri list as they are now called Huns/Golden Hords (sic) though still Mongols on the box (strange?).
Rava's illustration is tantalising and gives an idea of what they could be like. I prefer the Zvezda horses they look more like the Mongol pony.
You are right, in both sets the balance is wrong between heavy and light armour and also between spear throwers /lancers/ swordsmen and archers
