Aventine Samnite Cavalry













Here are some Aventine Samnite cavalry that I've finally finished painting. They are shielded later types from the third century BC, so could be used for the Third Samnite War, 298 to 290 BC. I have some A&A and Crusader Samnite cavalry which I will use for earlier unshielded cavalry of the fourth century BC. The shield transfers are by LBM.

  8. Thanks Iain, I use a Foundry paint Shiny 6C for the bronze with a wash of Army Painter Soft Tone acrylic ink, which works well.
