Companion Cavalry



Here are a few photos of a Strategos and some Companion Cavalry. All the figures except a single standard bearer (Newline) are Foundry. I had a bit of trouble when varnishing one of the units and there are little white flecks visible on some figures from my spray box which is really annoying. I'm going to make another box and just use it exclusively for varnishing. I've tried to make this unit resemble the illustrations (p.15.) in Nick Sekunda's recent article Cavalry about the court: The Ptolemaic horse guard in Ancient Warfare Magazine Volume V, Issue 2.

  6. Lovely!

    I find ten figures for mounted units give just the right appearance.
