Description

Cataphracts were the heavily armoured cavalry of the middle ages for the eastern Roman empire, Persians and more. Their name derives from the Greek "Kataphraktos" meaning "all armoured".
The big guy above is a Greek cataphract of the Byzantine empire, around 9th century. I 'm especially proud for his weapon ( named matzoukio) whitch i design it from a photo.

Hope you like it people.
