Equites Scutarii Indigenae Pafenses

Another unit of the desk for my late Roman army, the  Equites Scutarii Indigenae Pafenses, were stationed in (Mesoptamia) on the border at Tell Fafan, at the confluence of the Tigris and Bohtan Su rivers. The unit was known as the "Uholders or Defenders" and were used to patrol between the fortress crossing points along the border between Cepha (modern Hasankeyf) and Bezbade. The miniatures are again from the A & A range. The sheild is based on the Equites Scutarii, and I gave them the oversize scutum from A & A.Still waiting to pick up some long silfor tufts to finish of the base, but otherwise done!





Cheers

Dystopian Prussians

This is the second Dystopian Navy I have painted for John, they are equisette resin 1/1200th ships perfect for Victoriana pulp naval actions (what we will use them for). He also has a third coming (Japanese) so looking forward to them also, lots  of detail to suit the fussiest painter, I have painted them according to Mal Wrights guide as WW1 German dreadnoughts (except for the bronze bits!).

Dreadnought
 
 
Destroyers
 
 
 
Corvettes
