18th Century North American Indians

These are the finished 28mm North American Indians from Perry Miniatures (pack AW32 Warriors skirmishing with bows). My particular favourite is the running figure, so I've included a few more shots of that miniature, (nothing to do with my painting, just love the pose).

These are initially allies for my AWI British, but will serve as foes/allies for my French and British in the FIW.

Early Achaemenid Persian Sparabara - Unit 2

This is the second of the initial 4 units of Sparabara that I will be fielding. The figures are again 28mm front rank from Crusader Miniatures, and rear rank archers Miniature Design Studios.

I feel the big challenge with painting up an Early Achaemenid Persian army is lots of variety in the colour scheme. I'm hoping once it's all on the table I get the feeling that it represents the diverse nature of the Persian Empire. There are many troop types I intend to include in the collection that I haven't bought the figures for yet, namely the Indian contingent, and some Egyptian Marines.

Early Achaemenid Persian Slingers

The first unit of Early Achaemenid Persian slingers. These are 28mm figures from First Corps Miniatures, I have another 8 to add at some point. These were nice clean castings and paint up easily.
