Early Byzantine Kavallaroi

Whilst I was painting some mounted Normans for Dave I dug out a unit of cavalry for my 6th century Roman project. I hadn't realized that it was last May since I had added anything to the collection!
To rectify the neglect I have also cleaned up a unit of psiloi to paint and ordered a unit of Huns.
Figures are from the ever gorgeous Aventine range of course on a 120mm x 80mm base from Warbases.
Off to GHQ for next week's game, the very pretty Italian Wars using Hail Caesar utilizing the medieval additions in the second edition.

  2. I thank you Sir, a new set especially for them and a human sacrifice to the dice gods may do trick I think😂

  4. Great horses shades. I now see where David gets his painted units from. I would up the cost if I was you.

  10. Wonderful example of how to use colour and horse tones to best effect there Phil. The overall result is stunning! If figures on the table always performed as well as they looked, you'd rarely loose!! 😃
