Have had this unit undercoated and ready to go for a while now.Then flames of war caught my eye and they were forgotten,so a snowy sunday and nothing to do i bit the bullet and did them.Still need a bit of basing which i'll do next time the polyfiller is out.

I need to do 3 more foot units and the the cavalry to finish my Armati roylist army.
