Persian Colonist Cavalry



Now then,

These 12 cavalrymen have been sat on my painting desk along with a load of Persian archers for about a year! Well I finally painted them. That pretty much completes the Persian army for Impetus. The archers are painted and im just getting them based up too.  Ill have them done for tomorrow hopefully, so stand by for some army shots!

Here they are!






Miniatures - Xyston 15mm

The full Persian army can be seen here - Persian Army page or click on the tap at the top of the page.

WARBASES

When I put in my latest order to warbases, I also got myself some markers made up for Impetus. I got 20 each of the disordered and opportunity markers. Got to say I'm very happy with them too, great quality and for the cost of a few shillings you cant go wrong.




I also had these movement trays specially made for my 6mm Napoleonics, as moving 20 odd Battalions of 6mm infantry with 6 bases per Bn will be time consuming and a wee bit irritating to say the least. Hopefully these will speed up proceedings!


Persian Levy archers and the full Persian army in all its glory tomorrow!

Cheers for looking,
Steve

    1. I really tried to tone these down, being poorer troops from the colonies, I reasoned they wouldnt be as bright and colourful as the "regular" troops.

  8. That's a great looking army! I think 15mm is a great scale to get armies finished in. I hope to do more in them.
