Tarantine Horsemen

Posted by ToneTW on 26 May 2020, 23:25

This is an updated unit of Tarantine cavalry based on a "finished" unit of Newline Designs 20mm Tarantine Cavalry code with their Greek light cavalry code. The Greek light cavalry are easily converted into Tarantines simply by adding a shield. In addition I added a spare Macedonian mounted musician and a few Maccabean light cavalry for some cloaked riders. Using a variety of shields and head swaps the unit now has a motley appearance.

I spent a bit more time introducing various coloured tunics into the painted and unpainted figures. Also with the shields, some hand painted designs, some waterslide transfers and some a hybrid. The hybrid ones used the bronze base and black dolphin designs which were simply painted over.

Beautiful painted horsemen. And the shields are really cool.

Wow! Fantastic visual effect! Amazing how simply adding a shield changed the figures. I used Newline Design Greek cavalrymen for my Athenian army, but I didn't recognize them.

They are a very pleasing sight, unless you're an enemy infantryman.

Very good looking cavalry unit.
