Second Test Base — Parthian Cataphracts

The Parthian Cataphracts assemble - or - I give you the Rabbitohs!

I wanted a bright, uniform theme to the Parthian Cataphracts, especially as these generally were the bodyguards or professional troops of the various Parthian kings. I thought, a different cloak colour for each element as there will be 12 figures per element and we will have a pretty uniform look. Not sure why but I thought, colour the lances as well.

This desire for brightness in the Cataphracts was further fuelled by reading Peter Darman’s The Parthian series.

Sigh, I fear there is a rugby league theme developing in the painting of the Parthians – to the left I give you the South Sydney Rabbitohs!

My view of the Parthians ... I hope

I just had a look at the other part painted figures next to the painting table and I can see  the Parramatta Eels their. Possible also Easts Roosters and maybe one other.

Should not paint Parthians in Rugby League season!
