Finally got these models finished. I like this product a lot, if you are thinking Late Roman/Early Byzantine you should consider these little beauties! link

Very nice work. I really like the dynamic pose of the two figures holding their spears two handed and I wish I'd thought of mixing steel and bronze scales on the same figure for mine.

Wonderful paint job. Nice figure, too

Very nicely done!

For what it's worth, Byzantine architecture frequently made use of different colored rows of brick or stone for decorative purposes, so the rows of bronze scales gives the figure a little more of a Byzantine flavor. It's also relatively easy (as opposed to free-handing some sort of picture). I will definitely have to give this a try.

Romans would alternate rows of brick and stone too. Somewhere along the line they had figured out that it reduced the risk of collapse during and earthquake. It became an architectural motif used even in Britannia. It seems that they just liked to look of it.

Very nice!

Nice!

You opted to stick w/ the plastic lances, not drill out the hands and replace w/ metal?

I am an endless optimist (or perhaps a fool)

Somebody asked about a size comparison, so I lined one up with a few other models I had to hand. The lines in the background are 10mm apart.
