En tous les cas, c'est vraiment bien fait. D'ailleurs je l'ai prit si jamais je doit illustré un "Role Play écrit" (Je ne sais pas trop comment dire en Anglais).

In any case, this is really well done. In fact I took if I ever shown to a "Role Play wrote" (I'm not sure how to say in English).

Fail, sorry ^_^

Great sense of movement. Byzantine Kataphractoi were never much good when dismounted, to much armour to move with any speed.

As I just said, Kataphraktoi were exclusively cavalry unit, highly unlike to fight on foot; you should use heavy byzantine infantry (it would be pretty much the same).
Apart from that, your painting is AWESOME!

I wanted it to contrast with the previous cover I did for Warmaster Ancients (which I suppose I should get round to uploading) and that oen was all warm colours. So this one got to be snowtastic. Snow scenes are cool to paint anyway, eh? I'm always trying to remember to think about the weather in my pieces as I think it can bring a lot. I forget more than I remember though!

Cheers Jer.

Well, I have noticed that allot of your pieces do have cool weather in them. That's definitely a good thing. Great work, either way.

The detail in this piece is incredible. I really love the background with the sun coming up over the mountains. Also, the action of this shot is really awesome, he is really taking on the whole army. Great stuff.
