Early Achaemenid Persian - Greek Surrender

Interesting start to the post. Upgraded to Windows 10 on my new laptop last night and found this morning that Edge is non Blogger friendly when downloading images. Rather than mess about trying to figure it out in Edge, tried Firefox and no problems. Anyhow, onto the interesting bit...

I picked these figures up as a set from the Foundry stand at a show last year, to be honest can't remember which one, but I haven't seen it on their website.
A nice little vignette showing the Greek General submitting to the superior Persian Commander. I maybe shouldn't tempt fate given my track record!
The inspiration for the colour scheme (particularly the Eunuch) was taken from the Osprey Elite Series, 'The Persian Army 560-330BC'.
Based up on an old CD with the usual mix of filler, sand and random gravel from the fish tank bag.
