Winged hussar companions, these were only company sized but I like the different capes and lance designs, so I have whole units of them. Foundry again, quite plain really but the lances and pennants lighten them up.
Next unit also a companion unit, the stars were tough, and I really like the lances
Off the desk this week, a few more units for project that has been on the go for a number of years. I have rebased some units so they double for impetus and might and reason.
Figures are Foundry for the cavalry and Tag for the infantry bar two units
Twenty-second Deiotaran Legio Levied approximately in 48 BC and disbanded after the Jewish Bar Kokhba revolt of 132–135. It was named after Deiotarus , the client Celtic king of the Tolistobogii tribe of Galatia. Deiotarus, during the Republican period, raised a number of legions trained by Romans. Then a single Roman Legio was formed after the annexation of Galatia in 48 BC. The XXII Deiotariana was not commanded by a senator, but by a Prefect from the equestrian-order, because the legio controlled the ports and supply depots for the all important grain in Eygpt. The figures are Black Tree Design, all based for Impetus, two of the 6 legio bases to come, waiting for more transfers.
Finally decided to sell off my Vikings and I am having a little clear out excess armies and figures in the coming weeks. They were last used as Vikings in a WAB tourney about 6 years ago or so before being rebased for impetus rules and even then I used them as Germans. Now part of crabbies collection!
Sir William Douglas,Lord of Douglas This unit represents Lord Douglas and his retinue, the Douglas family were heavily involved in the politics of Scotland, either William the elder (longleg) or his sons Hugh or William (the bold) Douglas May of served at Lewes, but I am yet to find out conclusively.
Figures are a mix of Mirliton, Foundry, Gripping Beast, and Fireforge miniatures. Cheers Matt
