Late Roman Cavalry - Schola Gentilium Seniorum

Here are some Late Roman cavalry that I've just finished painting. These are the Schola Gentilium Seniorum, a guard cavalry unit. In the Notitia Diginatum, they were part of both the Western and the Eastern Roman army, under the respective Western and Eastern commands of the Magister Officiorum, commanders of the Scholae Palatinae. Most of the figures and horses are by Black Tree Designs, with a single A&A and a single Westwind rider and horse. The shield transfers are by LBM.

I've just ordered a box of the new plastic Gripping Beast Late Roman cavalry and can't wait to get my hands on them! Their Late Roman plastic infantry set was superb and is one of the best plastic Roman sets around.
