Early Byzantine Horse Archers

Here are some early Byzantine Horse Archers and a Belisarius figure from Footsore Miniatures. One of the horse archer poses doesn't have a sword which is strange as it has a helmet and armour. Footsore have just released some infantry and Aventine Miniatures are releasing a Justinian Byzantine range as well, starting with the infantry. There are already two 28mm ranges for this period that I'm aware of - Old Glory and the former Newline figures now owned by SHQ, so gamers will be spoilt for choice once all these ranges are available.

    1. Thanks Michal, I'm really looking forward to the Aventine Justinian Byzantines.

  2. Fine looking cav, Mike. Love the alternating scale work on the Beli fig!

    1. Thanks Dean, the Justinian Byzantines are an army I've wanted to collect and paint for a long time but I've been waiting for the Aventine and Footsore ranges.
