Uniform of the Week

It may surprise that I have interests in periods other than the 18th and 19th centuries and this weeks uniform reflects that. Ever since the original Rome Total War game I have loved Parthian and Armenian Cataphracts, with their lamelar, scaled and plate armour not only were they the best mounted unit in the game but they captured my very young imagination and still do. The mounts look monstrous in their barding and the riders look exotic and fierce, almost alien.
