Here's a unit of Nikephorian Klibanophoroi that I've just finished painting. These are all Crusader Miniatures figures with LBM banner and shield transfers. Most of the horses have red ox hide armour as per the Angus McBride illustration in Ian Heath's Osprey book Byzantine Armies 886-1118. I've also been beavering away assembling boxes of the brilliant new Fireforge Games plastic Byzantine cavalry sets, see the work in progress shots below.
