|Later Persian Army (II/7)|
I tried a few new techniques and materials for this army. Jeff uses wood filler for his bases instead of the glue and sand method that I have been using. I gave that a shot, and I do like the results. I also used Gale Force 9 static grass for the ground cover. My painting approach remains the same - basic block painting with a wash for shading purposes. I didn't get the wash on as well as I would have liked in some areas.
|Darius - LCh General and Scythed Chariot|
|Two Cavalry and two Light Horse|
|Two Psiloi and Extra Bow|
The Later Persian list includes two Light Chariots, two Cavalry, two Light Horse, two Psiloi, and the option of either Spear or Auxilia for the remaining elements. I had leftover archers, so I created a Bow stand as well. I'll use it later for an Early Persian list, which is chock full of Bows.
|Two of four Auxilia|
|Phoenician Marines (Spear)|
