Thracian Cavalry WIP.

A couple of progress shots from the Workbench of Doom:

Polemarch Neo Tarentines + Thureos = later Seleucid Thracian Cavalry.

With some of their forbears, Crusader Thracians in Antigonid service.

Yeah I know gone a bit Thracian mad recently, though both manufacturers versions are fairly generic. The Crusader miniatures would make perfectly good Achaean league heavy cavalry or even Seleucid Politikoi.
The pink stripe added to the shield is pure invention/extrapolation on my part, I took the idea of the 'national' cloak colours mentioned in the last post & inspired by blue stripes shown on Galatian shields in an Angus McBride painting extended the logic to a similar distinction on Thracian shields. Probably errant nonsense but it will make them stand out on the tabletop.

  1. Nice work as always, HGA. Hmmm, those pink racing stripes may attract some attention on the battlefield - maybe what they want? Best, Dean
