Thematic Byzantines Combined Arms 1000pts for Britcon LIST EDITED 03-11-2021

Postby Atheling » Sun Oct 31, 2021 4:25 pm

Come on guys, let's try to get the spirit of the ye olde WAB Forum going here :)

Thematic Byzantines list that will be a part of my 2021-2022 Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge starting December.

Initially I tried to go all cavalry but the army looked quite flimsy so I stuck in some heft and staying power with the infantry.

Question- Are the Cavalry units too small? Should they be six bases?

I could drop a unit of Irregular Skirmishers and add Barding to the other unit of Tagmata Heavy Cavalry? This would slow them down but maybe being Drilled they could still steal a march/charge on their opponents?
