From Tamsin: 15mm Scythian Light Cavalry (48 points)

From Tamsin:
For my 9th entry, here are some 15mm Scythian light horsemen. I'd actually started painting the horses before the Challenge, but the riders hadn't been touched so they count. 

Figures are from Donnington. The sculpts don't seem to have as much "texture" as their other miniatures, so the Klear/ink step hasn't been as effective as normal.

For my next entry I'll be returning to 28mm with some more Normans. Now I've just got to assemble them (a job I dislike, but that's the price you pay for using plastics!).
Excellent work Tamsin. Like your previous unit of light horse, I really like how vibrant you've gone with these. 

These Scythian boys will give Tamsin 48 points to add to her tally. This just leaves her a few points shy of her original Challenge Par Goal with 40 days still to go - impressive effort and great painting!


  1. they are a fantastic looking unit, I join you in not liking the sticking togther of plastics, thats why I gave away my Vitrix Nap just too many bits
    Looking forward to your Normans
    Peace James

  2. They look excellent Tamsin, they're so colourful!

  3. Really nice, skythians should look bright and you got the job done


  4. Beautifull unit Tamsin, great work..

  5. Amazing colours. Great job Tamsin.

  6. Cheers guys! Glad you like their colourfulness :)
