WIP Late Roman horse archers
These should be finished by the end of the week. The chap on the left originally had a spear/lance but this has been substituted by an old Gripping Beast bow from the bits box. His shield is an Essex buckler with the central boss filed away. Two of the horses are A&A miniatures ones from their C5th range, the othe horse and the three riders are from Wargames Foundry and have been hanging around the in painted lead pile for many years. Now these archers do seem rather well armoured for skirmishes but I think they'll do the job for my "slightly decadent" Eastern Roman army; just a bit to brightly dressed, just a bit too "bling" if you know what I mean.
