So when I mounted CBmen from some new line of massive 28mm figures in order to play Early Burgundian using my great ole 25mm Irregular line and used Minifig horses so they wouldn't oversize the rest of the army, I was being accurate!

This work parallels much of what we've been reading vis a vis our work on Biblical Warrior. Later chariot horses weren't that big but you wouldn't know it from figure manufacturers.

Thanks for sharing. I love this kind of stuff.

Figures manufacturers can get 'nutty' with sizing...really hard to just buy modern SHC and fit 4 of them on a 25mm base.
