Persian National Cavalry

Now then,

I finished off the Persian cavalry last night. I have based the colour schemes off the ones in the Persian man at arms Osprey book,  Persian national cavalry at Issus, illustrated by Simon Chew.

I have one more unit to do, but will need to get another order in to North star.... Anyway, pics!

Yellow saddle, red shoes....
Both units are very similar, the only difference being the saddle colour and the shoes.  So I have painted a slightly different pattern on the brown trousers too, just to make them a little bit more interesting...

Blue saddle, yellow shoes...

Both units together.

On the painting table at the moment are the Kappadokian noble cavalry, with attached general, and another unit of Bactrian light horse. I'm approaching "burn out" with the 15mm stuff now, so I'm going to finish what i've got started then paint something different...I really don't want to start rushing and ruining the figures 'just to get them finished'.

So, Kappadokians and Bactrians, then maybe some 28mm Tomorrows War!

Cheers for reading,

EDIT - I've just had a major varnishing disaster with my Kappadokian Noble cavalry....All the paint has bubbled.... BUGGER!!!! Not sure what has happened, as it has never done this before, I may have to strip them and start again. Sigh.....


  1. These look great, best to move onto something else for a bit as you said as you don't want to spoil the good job you are doing


  2. Those bases look amazing. The large groupings of rocks looks very real. Beautifully done.

  3. Wonderful figures and bases!

  4. Greate looking units Steve !!!

    Best regards Michael
