Roman Heavy Cavalry

This unit of Roman cavalry is composed entirely of Crusader miniatures.


At the last Historicon held at the ex-Host in Lancaster in July 2018, there was a vendor on the upper level who had a pretty wide selection of Crusader miniatures, and was having a nice sale for the Convention, so these were among the packs I picked up during my Sunday pas through prior to departing for home. .


Perhaps they will  fare better against the dreaded Carthaginian mounted arm? 


They were fun to paint up, especially the cloaks. 


At least they'll look as god from behind as from the front!


The Bay horses set off the other colors well, I think.

    1. Thanks, Jake. I painted up all the horse for this series (24) in advance, and well before the riders, and then matched up the horse colors with the riders.
