I just finish these up this morning, actually they have been painted for a few days but I have been putting the basing off, anyone that follows my blog knows how much I DON'T love flocking and painting bases...lol I really do have to say after painting this 2nd set of the Warlord Games Samaritan Cataphract that these are some of the best miniatures I have ever had the privilege to paint in close to 30 yrs of on and off painting! Worth every cent period! I painted these up so as to be able to use them as Romans by painting Reds and Tan/White colors common to Roman units I have seen elsewhere, yes I know they aren't Romans but I don't have but 1 Cavalry unit for my EIR Romans and they are light to medium types, so these will act as Roman Cataphractii or Clibinarii(sp) until such time as I can get them.
If you don't have any of these guys and are looking at get some have no fear they are fantastic sets of miniatures! Also I wanted to note two things as follows below.
1st: I have run out of grass tufts so I tried the best I could to simulate them using flock.
2nd the 100mm Spears that come with these sets are lethally sharp, I would suggest sands them or grinding the tips down in some way as I did. I used a dremel mototool with a sanding wheel to take the sharp bits off the tip. With these guys it is very easy to skewer yourself 1/4 of an inch deep or more when reaching for one model by another point nearby. You have been warned...:)
