We have completed most of the cavalry in the Hellenistic section so we have covered Pyrrhus, Macedonian, Seleucid and Ptolemaic heavy cavalry with either lance or spear and shield. There are 3 different armours with more to follow. The Breastplate figures have cloaks. All except the trumpeter in the HC 04 packs have separate heads so the combinations are vast. We listed them in the different sections to help with decision making. Adam is working on mixed pectoral and mail armour so we will be able to add Carthaginian and Merc. cavalry for the period as well. Here are some of the cloaked versions, the linothorax and scale photos are not great and I am retaking them when light is better.





The rest are on the website.

Just wonderful but I wonder what was the Hellenistic punishment was for blowing your trumpet right into your commander's ear.

Superb figures Keith - great to see the non-helmeted versions, especially the kausia.   When can we expect to see General figures to go with these by the way.   

Even though I have far more xystophoroi than I can ever use these will be added to the pile!   They will be handy as bodyguard for generals.

Adam has been going down the separate head route for a while now and may well do the same with the generals, that will open the way for whatever style of head gear you want on them.

Thanks Keith.

Actually the officer from HCP-04 (with the headband) looks like a General candidate in any event!   I do appreciate separate heads which fit snugly - yours are good to glue and forget (no pinning/support needed).   There look like some quite splendid helmets on offer. 

Look forward to the Seleucids - interested in your take of the later Agema Cataphracts.

Cheers

Are there 1/2 barded horses for Seleucid Agema?

These are early period and we will be covering the later types soon. Next up will be mail and mixed pectoral armours then some Thorakitai and thureophoroi, then Thracian infantry and cavalry. Once they are completed it will be the Companions, Agema and cataphracts for the Seleucids. The 1/2 and fully armoured horses will appear then along with companion styled horses. That is the plan anyway.

Thanks Keith.  These look great.  I suspect they will become Aetolians heavy cavalry (and officers) for me.

Really nice figures. Sounds like the Byzantines have been put on hold (or cancelled). Any update on these?

Only just saw these- super!  Love the kausia and the wreath on the Boeotian.

Exceptionally beautiful models, Keith. Oi! Please don't tempt me so, your Sassanids have me hooked and I have a feeling the early Byzantines will as well. But if I start any new armies at the moment, it may be grounds for divorce :D
You go to war with the figures you have, not the figures you wish you had!
