One down lots more to do : Persians that is ๐Ÿ˜€

So between turkey, walking dogs, presents and family stuff I have had plenty of time to get on and complete my first unit of Persians. I have started with some generic spearmen types in fairly plain colours who could easily find themselves as mercenaries in one or other armies. They are Wargames Factory persians with different shields and Aventine spears/Javelins. The colour scheme came straight from an illustration on the web.....but having looked about and checked out lots of sources it is pretty clear there are few limitations on what Persian troops and allies could/would look like. For the shields I have also kept them generic, I plan to add some more characteristic Kardakes later with Hoplites shields etc.
Next I will probably tackle the larger Spabara/archer unit ? Depending on how I feel I might add a bit more detail on these guys at a later date .......๐Ÿ˜€
