CATAPHRACTS II B.C.-III A.D. century.
Cataphracts were essentially heavy armoured lancers, and appeared in the armies of many peoples during the five centuries mentioned by the box (second century BCE to third century CE), particularly but not exclusively the Parthians, Sarmatians, Seleucids and even the Romans in the later empire. As usual there were no rules as to their appearance, and the differences between those of one army and another were often non-existent, especially when one group were serving as mercenaries or allies for another. Wisely then this set makes no mention of nationality, and merely leaves us to gaze on the fearsome armoured warriors it contains.
