Fireforge Games Announce The Byzantines As Their Next Plastic Range

July 4, 2017 by dracs

Fireforge Games have announced that they will be working on a new range of miniatures recreating the Byzantine armies, the first unit of which is already up for pre-order.

Skoutatoi

This new piece of artwork shows off the skoutatoi, the backbone of the Byzantine forces, easily recognisable by their long shields.

Byzantines

As the successors of Rome’s military might, The Byzantines have a rich history to draw upon and a culture that saw a melding of eastern and western concepts. Fireforge should have plenty to choose from when coming up with their new sculpts.

Is this a period of history you are interested in?
