More Successor cataphracts.

 Mounted on super heavy cavalry bases as 4Kn. I'm still in a bit of a painting desert so I'm scratching around looking for a few odd items to just - well, paint quickly.

I wanted this to be a 4 element 16 figure unit - at the moment I can only fing 12 of the horse Iwant to use so it's stuck as a 3 element unit - know I've got extra horses somewhere (I think), just wanted to quickly get going again so the extras were sacrificed.

Simple dry-brushing paint scheme - it looks effective, dark and menacing.

The green on the horse armour is just reflections! This is one of the simplest and quickest units I've painted for a long time.



  1. I rather like these. The riders have a rather thick spear era minifig look.

  2. Early 1st generation PB series from when they were still looked on as 'S' Range. I have 3 generations of these figures - these plus the separate Kontos version and cut down later integral weapon version as shown back in September,
    I prefer the thicker Kontos for wargames - less fragile!

  3. Super heavy Cavalry - 12 year olds favourite in the mid-1970s

    1. Except when they couldn't catch anything...
