Sub-Roman British (DBA II/81c)

Here is Arthur in all his glory! Arthur's troops are inspired by Bernard
Cornwell's Arthurian Trilogy. I ended up painting the stars instead of using
transfers. All are POTN figures from the Gothic range except for one Essex horse
that is half-armored. I used it to represent Arthur's Knights which makes him a
3Kn(Gen). Arthur is a conversion of a mounted Goth and the head of a Late
Imperial Roman cataphract. Can I be tempted to make such a figure for the
masses? Anything for a price I guess. I have a few additions to put into
this army. One is an element of Spears with Chi-Ro emblems on their shields and
an element of LH, one with a fur covered torso, again from the Goths ranks.
While I enjoyed doing the conversion and having the standard made, I really am
not going to use this army except in period specific circumstances, like a
campaign. Good reason to haul out the Picts and Saxons. When I showed this army
to the club Friday night, another Arthurian aficionado pointed out one error and
I am aware of another departure from Cornwell's Trilogy so I will make one
Arthurian conversion for the first person who can
point out the two "errors" as represented
in the pictures that differ from Cornwell's account.
