Gripping Beast have released their new Goth Noble Cavalry. The miniatures can be used to represent a wide range of cavalrymen from 300AD to 800AD including Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Franks, and Vandals.


The Goth Noble Cavalry formed the core of the Gothic armies that washed across Europe during the Dark Ages, serving as heavy cavalry that brought death and destruction to their enemies in support of the infantry, light scouts and horse archers.


The set includes twelve plastic Goth Noble Cavalry, and are supplied unpainted and unassembled with plastic bases included.


Gripping Beast have worked hard to ensure that these miniatures are historically accurate to the weapons and armour which would have been worn at the time.


The average cavalryman would have been equipped with a mail shirt, an iron or steel helm and whatever weapon they could afford. Wealthier Goths may have opted to garb themselves in lamellar armour due to the additional protection it offered against the blunt force trauma inflicted by the maces and axes common in the period.


The detailing is pretty good on these miniatures. My only grievance is that they have tried to make the horses dynamic but I don't think they have got the hooves quite right. Otherwise, this is a pretty cool historical army, perfect for Eurocentric tabletop wargames!

Visigoths or Ostrogoths? You decide!
