Seleucid cavalry done

27 March, 2011

Seleucid Companion cavalry and Agema.

I now have the knight elements finished for my Seleucid army. It’s now able to take the field, although it’s waiting on some elements and it’s borrowing others from the Later Macedonians.

From an different angle.

I’ve painted four elements. The first two are for the earlier period and consist of a command element of Companion cavalry (Freikorp HG22 with the commander from HG26) and another element of Agema, recruited from Medes (HG23).

Seleucid cataphract cavalry, fitting very nicely on their base.

The other two elements are both cataphracts (HG24). I described their painting over a number of earlier posts. I’m pleased with how the horn scale barding turned out.

Showing their other side.

    Looking good Mark – it looks like you enjoyed the bright colours. Since they have borrowed their foot from the Later Macedonians, will you be painting an ‘enemy’ for them?

      Thanks; I think they look better with bling, than in more somber iron colours!

      They’ve got one enemy already, the Romans! I’ll work to get the rest of them done, so they can face the Later Macedonians too. Then there’s the Ptolemaics; an elephant would be the minimum (at a pinch I can use the Later Macedonian pike and even the Seleucid 3Kn).
