More work on my Byzantines

I've been chipping away at my Byzantine project.  

Command stand- Perry Armenian infantry command.

Spears and archers- all from the Fireforge plastics range. 

The archers- again Fireforge. 

Turcopoles- Perry miniatures. 

Armenian or Frankish cavalry- again from the Perry Crusaders range. 

Perry mailed sword and axemen which will be used as Frankish allies or Varangians at a pinch- until the Fireforge kickstarter arrives. 

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the Fireforge and Perry ranges go together. The Perry's have a reputation for being slighter builds than many of the other popular 28mm ranges and truth be told they are slighter than the Fireforge range but height wise they are close and the two ranges do work well together.
