I'm pleased to say that I have eventually finished the first complete unit for my Early Byzantines!

I've added in a couple of extra characters like the officer with his hand in the air, commanding the archers to loose and the Flamoularioi officer to 'dress the ranks'.

You can see a whole load of extra pics of the unit as a whole and each individual stand from various angles on my blog here:

First, a more or less actual size pic:

Those look absolutely gorgeous! Always had a soft spot for Byzantines!

Thanks :)

They have always been one of my favourite armies too. I used to have a speed painted Gripping Beast Eastern Roman army (it was for a WAB Campaign Weekend) but the new Aventine mini's that are popping out of the moulds are just superb.

Can't recommend them enough.

A really stunning unit you got there. The small extras is a nice touch as well.

Thank you. I'm glad you noticed the extra details as I thought they might get lost in all those spears and the archers.

Lovely work, very rich colours and the basing pulls it all together
