V&V Miniatures seem to be planting bugs in our studio as they have just released some Byzantine miniatures as Warren started ranting about them over the weekend. Check out this new Byzantine Emperor & Generals set from the team.

Byzantine Emperor - V&V Miniatures

The set comes with a set of four miniatures. Leading the way is the Byzantine Emperor himself looking out across the battlefield atop his heavily armoured mount. He is then surrounded by a band of Generals and a Standard Bearer who are no doubt going to be getting stuck in to clash with the enemy in close quarters.

Byzantine Generals & Standard Bearer - V&V Miniatures

The set is certainly a nice one which is packed with detail but it would perhaps have been nice to see each of the Generals in more dynamic poses? Obviously they might be watching from afar but these models look more akin to display pieces than proper gaming ones. I would have liked to have seen at least the two spear-armed Generals charging into battle.

Not every model has to be shown in the midst of a fight but if you're using these for Ancient wargames and the likes of SAGA where the forces might be smaller you need some dynamic models so that you get a sense of the action playing out.

What do you make of the models?
