Well, just about completed. As with the rest of my Sarmatians, the bases need to be dry-brushed, have flock etc added and then a final spray coat of matt varnish.
Without further ado, I present for your visual delight two battle groups of Sarmatian Light Horse:
I've re-worked my army list for tomorrow night's game and they will be joining the army. Right now I'm torn between 2 variants on my army list - one with all mounted battle groups and one which includes light infantry. I'll have to decide which before I go to bed tonight so that I can have them packed and ready to go in the morning.
I've started work on the javelin troops (flesh done), but I'm in no great rush to finish them so will take it easy. If I'm really lucky, they'll be ready for basing by Friday, but more likely it will be next weekend.
With the remaining Sarmatian cavalry I'm thinking of painting the riders and horses separately. It does mean that I'll have to rig up a thingummyjig to hold the riders while I paint them and that they might be less securely fixed on the horses. I reckon that glue, gloss varnish, Klear and final matt spray coat should keep them fairly secure, and it will make painting less fiddly.
So, expect to see posts titled "Tamsin's Equine Development Facility" at some point in the future.
