Spanish Cavalry













Here are a few photos of some Spanish cavalry that I've just finished painting. Figures are by Wargames Foundry and A&A Miniatures. These Spanish cavalry saw action in a Carthaginians versus Gauls game we played last week and acquitted themselves unusually well in their first outing - perhaps because I hadn't finished painting them? I'll post photos of the game shortly.

  1. Nice. Is the Spanish Cavalry from one of Foundry's older ranges? Cheers, Karl

    1. Thanks Karl, they're part of the Foundry Caesarian Roman range sculpted by Mark Copplestone, an older range but a very good one!

    1. Thanks Rodger, yes newly painted troops in my experience invariably run away, so I was surprised.

  7. Thanks Monty, they did do well and the Balearic slingers were very pesky as well.

  11. Thanks Dean, I think a mix of ranges often makes a unit more interesting but the Foundry Spanish are my favourite of the two ranges.

  12. Great, I to am looking for spanish cathagenian allies, and found the foundry ones the most intresting, but had to command, so good to know they mix well with A&A

  13. The A&A horses are shorter than the Foundry ones but I think they mix fine.
