The first wave of releases are now in the stores. 4 cavalry commands and 8 lancer packs.





Work continues on mounted armoured archers and the unarmoured bow and javelin armed figures.

Cheers

I am building towards a full Mortem et Gloria army, I now have enough infantry done just 28 more cavalry plus the light horse to do now.

I've got several rules sets that I'm trying to accommodate with the basing. It's possible for me to set up for Swordpoint, Hail Caesar, Morten et Glorium and Impetus. I'm sure I could fudge a few other rules sets in there if needed.

Of course, thanks to the trials and tribulations of the last year I haven't actually rolled any dice in anger with my Early Byzantines  :'(

Mine arrived today. To say they are stunning is an understatement.
It is joyful to have some brand new figures to paint. And the new, slightly bigger, horses are fantastic. On both the riders and the armoured  horses, the detailing in the armour is so well defined, and there’s just enough variation in each pack to make the unit look regular, but at the same time, very realistic. Well done Keith and Adam!

What a beautiful army: it will really stand out on the table top.   And it is such an interesting, unique one.

The new releases look exquisite.   I've already gone in feet first on the infantry range and will do the same with the cavalry.   

I second the shout for some packs of Heruls, Lombards and perhaps some "late Goths" to enable the Italian Gothic wars to be gamed!

Keith, although I understand Hincmar’s request for more Goths, please, please ask Adam to produce some early Arabs. Goths ( admittedly not specifically 6th century) are pretty well covered by other manufacturers in both metal and plastic. Arabs suitable for Byzantine/Sassanid Ghassanid and Lhakmid  allies plus “early Arab conquest”  are rare if not non-existent.

Reference Early Arabs, Adam has that on his list, there won't be many biut enough to do a unit or 2.

All that would be needed really unless one was to do a whole Ghassanid army or such like.

I love your army, I like how you painted them, Early medieval byzantine army is my dream army I have no idea when I will be able to paint. At the moment I am finishing 3 armies simultaneously, Saxon, Vikings and Normans, after that I have planned to move to 17th century Caribbean theme so I have no idea when I’ll come back to 10th century Byzantines and Muslims but I am longing to paint those heavy cataphracts.

This is an absolute masterpiece. Mostly if associated with the late Sassanide range. What a project possible: the whole Heraklian campaigns at one's door...
