It has been in my dreams for years. To put together a Nikephorian/Macedonian Dynasty Byzantine Army. The why etc will become apparent as the story of expeditious hand and brush movements become more apparent. Suffice to say, for now, that it goes back to the early 2000's and the games of Warhammer Ancient Battles we used to play with faithful devotion every week. It was Andrew Eason's Thematic Byzantine army, stunningly and lovingly painted, which drew my eye then and ever since, I have craved such an army. Gripping Beast's Black Friday sale made it an irresistible opportunity!

Very nice looking! I like the way you varied the horse armor patterns.

Beautifully done! The lances alone are worth the price of admission.

Thank you for the kind words guys- appreciated one and all.

To be honest, it was the only way I could face painting the bards! LOL


May we have some more please?
