Equites Mauri Feroces

A further if some what tardy addition to my third century Roman project, although technically I am ahead of the game as I got the figures as a retirement project. With the government changing the retiring age, I am told that my new retirement age will not change, who believes anything they say? I thought I may as well start now while I'm able. The figures are by A and A Miniatures, the shields are Foundry with LBMS transfers, now the unit and shield design are highly speculative as they are from the Notitia Dignitatum, but the alternative was to make one up, besides I like the name and shield design.



  
Based for use with Impetus, To The Strongest and Neil Thomas AMW rules, dice holder is used to denote how many bases are left as Neil's rules use units of four bases.

    1. Very true, even with only a few figures on the base like these. The story it tells makes up for it I think.

    1. Thanks Matt, looks so much better than light cavalry drawn up in a row I think, I am hoping to squeeze my cataphracts into a wedge formation. Should be possible the ones Adam does for Aventine are less bulky.
