Cavalry Shields
My first port of call for information about the Indians at the Hydaspes was the venerable "Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars" by Duncan Head. This revealed that the information available on shield designs was somewhere between sketchy and non-existent. I was unconvinced by the standard solution of cow hide patterns. In India? Really? A brief bit of research turned up illustrations of Mauryan Indian symbols from punch marked coins. As I had several dozen shields to add designs to I made up a sheet of transfers of some of the more interesting ones.
