II/69 Sassanid Persians

When I saw these figures form 50Paces, I had to have them. Well, that was a little over a year ago. Apparently, I had to have them weigh down my lead box. I hope you enjoy.
I painted the Cv in as much of a mismatched scheme as I thought I could come up with. I figured each of these nobles bought their own trappings so each should be different. I bored out the fragile lances that where on the molds and replaced them with longer stronger needles.

Love these guys. Here comes trouble. Any where you get that many men together with really nothing to do...they will find a way to screw things up just to have fun.

This elephant was purchased from a old essex box from NASCON. I am not sure what era it came from but it seemed to fit the bill. The riders are Ax and LH figures and the driver was from a Carthaginian elephant also from essex.

The combat multipliers....ok these are the guys that get the HD out of trouble.

My 3 year old daughter, Ashley, watched me photograph my Chinese and wanted her figures photographed as well. She has acquired my plastic Egyptian "camp" figures as her guys for DBA and will show them to anyone who shows interest in my figures.

I/32c Spring Autumn Chinese

I picked these guys up as a DBA 1.1 army for 50% off at NASHCON some years ago and filled in the rest of the guys to be able to build the a,b,and c lists.
I painted the HVY chariots back in September because I was interested in doing the Tiger skins then promptly lost interest in painting the rest of the guys.

Here is the General in his expensive gold armor and his bleached horses.

The 4 x 3Sp were fun. I made up the designs to liven them up and to make the units stand out from each other. Ireally like how the Gold fish turnned out in light blue.

The mis-mash of the army. I think that the 2 x 3Bw will be very useful for this force.

II/5e Aitolian

Bought these guys back at HISTORICON 08. I just love Ps, don't you? Can not wait to kick some butt with these light weight Greeks.
The General

3 x 4Sp. I tried to make the shields depict hilly/mountain creatures. The shields are a hoot to paint.

The meat and potatoes of the Army. I put some "captured" shields in the mix.

The Mobile killing machine.
