Interesting research and lovely modelling.

The shields look fantastic.

Best wishes,

Great work. Especially the heavy cavalry and infantry is beautiful in shining armour and colourful shields.

Chariobaude wrote:thanks Owen. I was in contact with the guys from Linear, who are moreover particularly nice and accessible (they also think of creating a forum on their site, which is excellent news): their three sets should be ready in the summer! Two years after the announcement, but we have never been so close to their release!
As for the expected enemies, it would seem that they are those of the Italian theater of operations, which is perfect for me. Can't wait to see more!


It's been a very, very long time coming. Their new Imperator Justinian miniature master is great, it's a very exciting time for the Byzantines! I'm glad you're so enthused about the upcoming releases!

The first set of linear-A on Justinian timeframe is finished (at least the masters !), with Theodora.

I love personality figures and I do like the look of that figure of Mrs Schliemann. :mrgreen:

Perhaps she could also pass for Hecuba?

Yes, this set is truely fantastic because you can use it for so many cases : Diocletianus and his comrades right Phil, but even for Ostrogothic aristocrats, and naturally Byzantium for at least three centuries !

They're great masters, I hope you're over the moon that we're getting new Byzantines / late Romans soon!
