Alexander's Thessalian Cavalry

Here is a other entry I made for a duel on Benno's forum

It was a duel against my friend Peter, and these where the first non WW2 solders I painted,
and also my first horses. The painting on these figures from Hat set 8048 was hard,
because the plastic was soft and the paint didn't hold on to good.
The horse who walks on front, had a panther skin on him, what was a hell to paint.
The landscape is made from PUR with some small stones and grass on it.

I did use as a painting guide the Osprey book "The army of Alexander the Great"
