Newline Assyrian Cavalry - the 28mm Assyrians, Part II

OK, so here are the Cavalry. Not quite as good painting-wise as the foot, as I'm a bit lazy/unskilled on the whole "horse painting" front but the mass effect I think is OK.

The Newline figures themselves are also still great, as even with only one set of cavalry the three different poses in the pack, as well as separate shields and spears still give a decent variety.


These 12 horses are supposed to be pulling chariots - I made a mistake in mixing them all up on the undercoating table, and then compounded that mistake by mis-counting how many of each type of horse I actually had (15 "normal" ones and 16 "chariot pulling" ones).

By the time I'd realised I'd painted them up it was too late to go back and change them. It does mean these guys have some serious armour around the neck of each horse though, which is probably a win for them

Good looking cavalry, I wouldn't have known about the horses if you hadn't told me!
