So Im interested in WAB as well, and was looking for models in the mid-late byzantium range.

Whats a good company? is there a set of links to online stores and recommendations from WAB players?

As said above but including:

Artizan
Curteys
Front Rank
1st Corps
Ebob
Essex
Musketeer Miniatures

Brigadegames a web outlet out of NJ sells many of these minis and is worth a look at.

Finding byzantine models can be... well... a bit byzantine really. My favorite historical mini companies (Gripping Beast, Perry Brothers, Artizan) don't have much on offer. (Gripping Beast does have a few - but imo they're the most hit or miss of the three and their site isn't showing pics for this range.)

I'm pretty sure most of the Byzantine players tend to mix across several different lines depending on which models are better than / most historical than others.

An important point is to make sure everything you get is to scale - Old Glory has a full line of byzantines but they're 25mm and look a bit small compared to other historicals companies that make things more GW sized (28-30mm). This isn't a problem at all if you stick to just 25mm, it's a common size for historicals.

What you need is some acute Bianchi assistance here. :)

John actually has a Byzantium army. Of course he'd be the expert in this query.

hey Ken, you guys playing WAB tomorrow?

andy, hadnt considered scale variance. Is 25mm against 28mm a noticable difference? (OMG an actual post by andy! what?! No pics?)

Yeah, it's noticeable when they're standing right next to each other in an army.
