I know, I know; I said I'd take a break from bronze! And I did, honest! I completed the 28mm cabin I'd made from Warbases' bits and bobs. Truth is it's rather uninteresting to look at, just a cabin really, hence no dedicated post about it. See ~
So, these 28mm Iberian heavy cavalry from Wargames Foundry figures were sitting on the painting desk, minding their own business, and I just thought they'd look better painted, so, here they are ~
The sculpting is clear and easy to paint, an important issue for we aging wargamers I've found. The poses of horses and riders are not as lively as they could be perhaps, and a little more variety might have been preferred, but they do the job I think! No doubt you will have your opinion on these matters too!
I've a further six figures to paint as Light Cavalry, the sculpts lacking in mail or bronze body armour. That leaves two Aventine units to paint at some stage: the unit of Levy and a unit of Italian Allied infantry for the Carthaginian army. I need shield transfers from LBM for the former, but the latter have hoplon shields and I've enough LBM shield transfers in stock for those.
