Just completed are some Assyrian Light cavalry figures I bought from Black Tree Designs during their post Christmas sale last year. These are the first cavalry from BTD that I have painted, and they are very nicely done.
This first unit has a Yellow/blue color scheme.
The BTD horses are very nice.... and also very large!
The size of the horses is probably part of why their cavalry doesn't go on sale very often.
The dark "Magic Wash" really worked well on these figures to pick up the details in the sculpting.
Third figure to the right must have taken an arrow to his horse. Not sure how he got bent over that far, but since corrected!
The horses in this unit have a very dynamic pose - but you can see how bending might easily occur with the two front legs in the air!
A blue-grey, orange, and white/silver color scheme for this lot.
I used some "weed tufts" on these bases... more on that anon!
BTD cavalry come 3 to a pack, and I only needed 8 figures for these 2 units, the spare one was mounted singly as a Leader of Hero for use in To the Strongest!
Some new flowering tufts adorn his base.
In case you don't get their email news, Black Tree Designs has a very short lived sale on just about everything at 30% off:
