I worked on these between sessions on the investigators so I did not have a lot to finish off yesterday.
Sixteen of the twenty four figures were bought for me by my kids for my birthday last March but I needed another eight figures to make up two units.
I got these at Donnington but that's as close as they got to being painted. So it was a goal for the painting challenge to do them.
With these 24 my Late Achaemid Persian Army is as good as complete. I will paint up a few more Hoplites and I can still go more cavalry if I desire but unless I get involved in a campaign I really can call it here.
I'm not a big fan of the bases of Essex figures though the figures themselves are fine. I expect to get these on the table before the month is out.
A strikingly colourful unit and its made all the better with most of the figures being a gift from your children. You've raised them right!
This horde of Persian cavalry will give Ian a very healthy 96 points to add to his total.
