I need a boatload more Sassanid Persian troops for my Historicon game, so here is the first of many such units:
There was a guy who played in the band with me in college who looked a lot like the beaded fellow!
The strength of the Sassanid army lies in their heavily armored cavalry and Elephants; their infantry is mostly rubbish. The archers are probably the best of a sorry lot!
Old Glory 28mm figures. Lots more of them to come in the next 10 days! I am behind on posting so it looks like they should all be safely ready for the convention.
Seeing these pictures up close I realize that these troops are missing something - the flesh highlight on the faces; that was also true for the Palmyran Archers and two more units painted in the same batch. I have gone back and added that. Much better!
