Thanks Sigur...

I managed to paint up some of the Equites. Equites were the rare horseborne gladiators. They typically fought mounted first, and then once one was dismounted, switched to both be dismounted. Typically, Equites only fought against other Equites. They were armed with small shields, spears, and gladius. However, once dismounted, they tended to fight with swords and shields. On the whole, Equites battles were very ritualized, perhaps even more so than more traditional gladiator fights.



I am really not a fan of painting horses.... at all. Therefore, they are pretty basic looking and then I moved on just happy to be done with them. They still need some basing love, but they are ready to test in the arena!
