Another year older but certainly not another year wiser I managed to grab some "me time" today and finish the Romano-British Noble Riders for my Dux Bellorum army.
The miniatures are all West Wind except for one Gripping Beast. Whilst I understand all the reasons why West Wind sell in blisters of two and eight, it is a pain when you want nine! Luckily Gripping Beast sell their miniatures individually so I was able to make up the shortfall.
When painting I used a similar palate to that for the Shiedwall with the inclusion of a couple of richer colours on the assumption the cavalry would be a bit richer than the puddlesplashers and have some more money to spend on finer cloaks etc.
With the shields I decided not to paint uniform designs as I had with the infantry, but kept the shield colours to black and white to ensure some unit coherency. There is no historical basis for this but it looks good.
