Dropping down in both levels of training and a paucity of funds this unit when compared to the last lavishly equipped Tagma regiment this unit has mainly been used to policing actions in one of the far flung Themes of then Empire. They are equipped as Light Cavalry and are equipped with mail shirts, shields and helmets only.
In game terms, in particular the WAB friendly event I plan on taking place in this year, this unit has been based on single very old school(!) bases so it can be split up into component parts and skirmish.
I do have plans to eventually use some of my Thematic/Tagmatic Kavallarioi units as Defensores and Cursores by adding a back rank of Hippo Toxotai, but that's something for the future. I need to concentrate on getting the bare bones of the army complete before I start going mad!
Another marvellously painted unit! Shields are amazing! I also like that, you are going back for gaming as well! Maybe one day you will be able to revisit Edinburgh?ReplyDelete
Thanks again Bartek. Yeah, the idea is to get back up to Edinburgh at some point for a week or so- who knows, I might even move back! :>)Delete
That would be great!Delete
I'm in regular contact with a couple of the guys so it's easily arranged when the time comes.Delete
Inspirational as always. GHReplyDelete
Appreciated as always :)Delete
This is shaping up to be a terrific army. Who would be so crass as to attack it when it looks so glorious?ReplyDelete
Thanks Stephen. Unfortunately my generalship is not exactly tip top so I expect to see most of the army legging it at the first chance it gets! LOLDelete
Superb paintjob !!!ReplyDelete
