Elite: Byzantine Cataphract by dmavromatis Elite: Byzantine Cataphract by dmavromatis
Ps cs3. About 12 hours.

Byzantine heavy cavalry, 11th century. This type of elite heavy cavalry was named "cataphract"which means fully armoured, in a way.

Wow wonderful work Byzantine history is so cool, and sadly over looked. You did a fantastic job with the armor and its details.

So true. People always think of Byzantine empire was stagnant. It lasted hundreds of years and considering all the chaos in the Western Roman Empire that was no mean feat.

I couldn't agree more. I'm a history major at university and sadly I've never seen a Byzantine Empire course. I'm really surprised by this I mean there's so much there.

This is some amazing art. The helmet and mail coif along the the barding look especially accurate.
