ARTHURIAN HOST
Sub-Roman British (DBA II/81c)

> Armies of the Fanatici > DBA Resources > Fanaticus

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.
