75mm Camel Parthia Catafratari

    Hello

    This is the 2nd figure of the year... Like Im spoking with some people in the shows and emails, we just lauch 5 historical figures per year... The next one will be in September...

    This time we chose a figure of Antiquity... We went to get a warrior from Parthia, who defeated Crassus and his legions in the Battle of Carrhae. This story fascinates RPmodels Team for several reasons... First... Roman War Machine, suffered the greatest or one of the greatest defeats in history... Different tactics by Parthians and the Romans could not adapt... And this defeat marks also the end of the Triumvirate, between Cesar, Pompey and Crassus, leading to a new political and geographic change at that time... Finally and what fascinates us more is the use of the Catafratari... The Heavy Cavalry, which later is incorporated into the Roman and Byzantine Army, later constituting the Heavy Cavalry at the Medieval Ages, with its principles and ideals...

    The figure gave 2 different heads... Many people talk with us in the shows, messages and email and they told have some difficulties in paint faces... This time and our main goal is develop figures to everyone.

    This will be a Limited Edition of 400 pieces... And I confess there are just a few left... I believe it will be SOLD OUT very quickly. We increase the number because people claim want our figures and they didn't get it... We try always our best and your opinion its very important to RPmodels and me...

    If you need something please email me to rpmodels.pt@gmail.com

    Thank you so much.
    With best regards
