I have added pictures for 6 more BGs that are now ready for the Broken Rays of the Sun. I hope to add even more as I get a chance to finish painting and flocking as the 2nd run of the campaign gets ready to start off this summer. Check out my blog for details.

Very nice.

Yes, very looking troops.

I see that you had to "stagger" the 4-to-a-base heavy cavalry just like I had to do. "Modern" 15mm cavalry figures just don't fit nicely on a 40mm wide base anymore.

True but I find the OG15s fit better than the FIB ones. The normal cavalry from FIB are usually a bit slimmer than OG.

However, cataphracts just look better 4 to a stand. The extra heft just feels like "heavy metal."

On my 15mm Late Roman Cataphracts, I staggered one stand of figures from the front right to back left and the other from the front left to back right. When you put the stands together they formed a shallow wedge. Just a thought but yours look great anyway.
