With a total disregard for my painting deadline I cracked when I visited Britcon and got a Later Achaemenid Persian starter army. Wish I had bought the painted army I saw but the Xyston figures I got will match up against my Greek types.
Actually decided to start with Early Achaemenid Persians so also picked up some Immortals as well.
Usually I like to stick my figs to bases before painting but with 2 x 7 man hordes and 4 x 8 man bow there is no way I could paint them correctly.
Got em cleaned up and deflashed so will stick to some coffee stirrers for painting this weekend and get em undercoated.
Really looking forward to getting em done as my Greeks have wanted a good scrap for ages.
Starting with the following until I get round to doing a chariot for the General.
1 x Cav Gen 1 x Cav 1 x Light Horse 4 x 8 Bow 1 x 3 Aux 2 x 7 Horde 2 x Psiloi
