Work in progress: Sarmatians

I painted up 2 bases of the Sarmatians as a test batch. The paint scheme of the barding is meant to replicate the armour made of split hooves/animal horn that is reported by ancient writers. I've assumed that the common Sarmatian warrior would be able to afford metal armour for himself, but would opt for the cheaper - and lighter - armour for his horse.

  1. Wow! Sarmatians! Hmm. This is great stuff.

    I do expect that you have a Roman army? 1st century army?
