Byzantine Psiloi











Here are some psiloi for my Nikephorian and Komnenian Byzantine armies. The staff slingers, crossbowmen and archers are all Crusader Miniatures and the javelinmen are Gripping Beast. I have just received two heavy infantry units from the new Early Byzantine range by Aventine Miniatures. They are really great figures that I'm looking forward to painting and are Antesignani 'before the standards' infantry. However I still have heaps to do on the later Byzantines and I'm working on a unit of Varangian Guard at the moment.

  1. Good work, Mike! Aventine has new releases? I ought to pop over and see what is new.
