Assyrian Cavalry #2

As alluded to in my previous post, here is unit #2 of the Assyrian cavalry.  Again, these fine horsemen are from Wargames Foundry's excellent 25mm range.
I kept these in the straw colored livery of a tranche of infantry.  That is, light yellow tunic and kilt with blue and white trim.  To my eye, the light yellow works well.
With the addition of two stands of cavalry, the upstart Assyrians are in a position to take the field as a "basic" Basic Impetvs army.  Many more units remain to see action on the painting desk.  Currently, one stand of Assyrian auxiliary infantry is beginning to see some progress on the workbench.
Before additional Assyrians march off the painting desk, one stand of Spanish archers for the Reconquista project and one stand of light cavalry (Stradiots) for the Great Italian Wars project will make their way off the table.

    1. The straw color for tunic/kilt is one I like. as for ticking off an army, I'm not finished yet! You are correct, most of my projects are rarely deemed "finished." That is part of the fun, though.

  3. Very nice Jonathan. I do like the yellow. It certainly gives some "pop" to the figures.

    1. Jake, no pressure on fielding the opposition. I am enjoying painting the Assyrians for now but my focus wanders frequently. Glad you like them!
