DBA 3.0 II/81a Sub Roman British - Army of Arthur

Here's the finished Sub Roman Brits, Army of Arthur.  In the end a pleasure to paint. I tried to mimic the look from the supplement, especially the red & white shields.

II/81a Army of Arthur 
1 x 3Kn(General), 1x3Cv, 1x3Cv(Welsh Gentry), 1x4Kn(Cataphracts),
2x4Bd(Legionaires), 5x4Sp(Pedyt), 1x2Ps(Archers)  

The Kontos/Spears for the horsemen are wire spears attached with epoxy.  The Legionnaires had their soft metal spears removed.  I've added strips of plastic for swords, so they can be easily identified as Blades. The bases finished with 'large' tufts of static grass.

A mighty foe to face?

Arthur himself, Minifigs I believe

Could not resist, Sarmations! Old Glory

Cavalry, Minifigs again.  Wire Spears.

Welsh Gentry

The Pedyt

Veni Vedi Vici Transfers, contrast well with the Shield colours.

Late Roman Archers, Minifigs.

Late Roman Legionnaires, Minifigs again.
