Cloaked cavalry in store

Adam delivered the Breastplate armoured cavalry with cloaks yesterday. They are now in production and the store has the photos of the packs. The figures are headless which allows us to expand on their usage by selecting the sets of heads that go with each pack, add a shield and a spear rather than a lance and they change again. They are a direct replacement for the old PYR13-14+15 packs and we added seleucid, Ptolemaic, Macedonian sets as well. Anyway here are the photos.

What are we making now?

Just a brief update on what we are working on now and what is next up.

Adam has completed cavalry figures in Linothorax and scale, he is adding mail, mixed pectoral and cloaked breastplated versions this week. By supplying different heads and shield/weapons we can use these to replace the Pyrrhic cavalry, add Macedonians, Carthaginians, mercs, southern Italian Roman allied cavalry, Ptolemaic and Seleucid heavy cavalry.

What will follow? Well we have promised to do Thorakitai, thureophoroi and later Thracians and they will follow the cavalry mentioned above.

After that it is the Seleucid companions, Agema and line cats.

That is all we intend to add to the Successors and once they are finished we will start on the Byzantines(at Last).

Hope that helps clear things up a bit.

Indian elephant crews

We decided to take a small diversion and do some Indian Crew for the elephants, we have no intention of expanding this to include infantry or cavalry.

There are 2 crews which can be mixed, the archers are 2 part and have their bows cast separately. The legs have been carefully crafted to fit in either the front, middle or back position on the elephants.

Adam’s Sassanids

Adam has painted some of the Sassanids. The elephant is an Indian with armour, he removed the crest on the heads(easy he said as the resin is easy to work). The crew are the ELSC2. The cavalry are a mix from the range. The falling horse is another of his converts, he removed the support on the front legs and lowered it down.
