The bulk of this army are 15mm Essex figures (the best). I have had a few figures floating around as an unused DBA army for years, but have now bought it up to spec as an Armati army, as such most of the units have been repainted in 2001.

ACHAEMID PERSIAN ARMY - Approx 330BC

Greek Hoplites

OK So my PERSIAN army is mostly populated by GREEKS !
