Nothing like the start of a new army.
I’ve started working on a Central Asian force using Aventine figures. These two come from their range of steppe cavalry nobles. The guy holding the severed head is sold by himself as a champion. The figure holding the standard comes from the lancer pack. The two of them make up one of the general stands for ADLG. These are awesome figures!
I ordered a steppe noble unit pack and I was amazed as their were 12 different horses in the pack of 12. Yes, that is right, 12 different ones! That’s amazing.
I’m working on a new army, or perhaps set of armies, for ADLG based in central asia. I was inspired when Aventine released their Sogdians to do this, but it took me a little bit to get around to it. You’ll soon see 4 stands of cav for ADLG that are a mix of steppe nobles and Sogdians making up the first 4 stands of my central asian army. They will work for a bunch of different kinds of armies. I have in mind Khurasanians, Sha-tuo Turks, and Abbasid Arabs for starters. They look great.
These really are a lot of work to paint. There is nothing hard about painting them, it’s just that there is so much detail that all needs some care. I’ll give a fuller review of the figures when the first group of 12 pops off the line. Soon.
