I absolutely love the red on these guys. The LBMS shield transfers really set these great figures off.
They are Aventine’s Equites Singulares. When I saw them released I had to have them. And they do not disappoint – they are some of the nicest figures I’ve ever painted. They are a breeze to paint too. There’s a lot of detail but everything is cleanly sculpted. Check out the detail on these helmets:
And a closeup of the shield transfers also:
Now I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them. I don’t have a rules set in mind. I had stuck the first 6 on WRG size bases – 3 horses on a 60mm front – but I really didn’t like the way they looked. I could make that work, but in the end I decided to put them in pairs on 2″ square bases. It’s a nice size for them. As I was painting them I was thinking how tedious it was to paint all that leather, but now that I’m done I couldn’t be happier with them. And wonder if I should paint another unit of them!
One last photo:
I have some Aventine EIR foot. Hopefully I’ll find some time to work on them soon. Not sure how to base them either….
