York? Anyone?

Am planning to go to Vapnartak in York this weekend.

Anyone else going?

I am hoping to raise funds for my recently deceased best friends charitable donation to Combat Stress. Look for me at the Tabletop Sale.

Figure Id Required

I recently rescued about 40 figures and horses from my friends scrap pile. They look good enough to be used in my 'Old School' ancients collection but I would like to have a clearer identification of the figure in question.

Here it is:

As you can see it is an unarmoured horse archer, quite possibly Minifigs but could be Garrison or Greenwood & Ball or maybe even Hinchcliffe.

The horse is stamped AHIII and may be a different manufacturer from the rider although it sits very well on the saddle.

Like I say I have about 40 of them, all unpainted apart from this one. I would like to be able to make up 3 or 4 small skirmish horse archer units for my Greek/Macedonian/Persian armies but will be more convincing if I can apply a race or nationality to them.

Hope someone can help!
