Forged in Battle: A Cautionary Tale

15 mm Hellenistic Light Horse (Gladiator Miniatures)

Here're the latest additions to my Hellenistic collection.  The figure is clearly based on the Tarantine cavalryman on page 117 of "Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars".  As the author notes: "Tarantine may already have denoted a style of fighting rather than a nationality", so they provide some nice generic figures.

On the tabletop, I like to have a mix of different light horse types so they can be assigned to different commands and easily spotted.  These shielded figures should contrast nicely with the Forged in Battle Illyrian light horse (shieldless) I plan to add in the next month or so.
