Can you tell what it is yet?
As you can see they're moors/numidians. Not much of a clue as they are pretty ubiquitous in the ancient period.
So, a second clue. The army is post 0AD.
The second batch of troops is cleaned up and sitting on the desk waiting for the glue to set. It's another (different) batch of cavalry. So far the Donnington figures are shaping up okay, but there's a lot more flash than the Peter Pig figures I'm used to, especially on the horses.
You may also note that I've changed my painting and basing style for this army. Theses figures are black undercoat with white drybrush and only minimalist magic dip varnish. The figures are then finished with a clear quick drying varnish. I'm not sure this is the final technique and the next figures may have a white undercoat with some black infill.
The bases are 2mm mdf done in my normal green then painted with PVA and flock aplied (Javis Scatter No 19 "rough pasture"). A bit of a retro style but a bit easier to work with than the normal pollyfilla approach.
