Avar Noble Cavalry (unit #1)

Impetus Unit Type: CM
Base Size:
8cm x 6cm
Special: Comp Bow C
Some Essex horses; rest of figures unknown.
After a pretty slow Spring in the painting department, I finally finished painting this unit as I entertained myself by watching Marc and Chris play Impetus. I'm still waiting for someone to come along and tell me which manufacturer made the figures. I have enough minis to to two more like this and one unit that will look slightly different, which I'll be explaining away as allies.

As I mentioned a couple of posts back, I don't know anything about Avar dress or armout. What I do know is, as a nation, they were a melting pot of many nations as opposed to one ethnic group. I'm using this fact to explain away any historical inaccuracies.

They look fantastic and I wish I could help you out on who makes them.

Nice looking unit! Nothing new for you though. I agree with Harry, those look like ESSEX minis.

Thanks guys. We're in the midst of packing for our move next weekend so, needless to say, there hasn't been any painting recently. Soon though - they're all primed and looking at me.
