  2. Very nicely done! Hand painting all of those shields is slow work, as is adding all the detail to those Persians. The payoff is they do look lovely!

  5. Love these guys. I can only dream of being able to freehand shields like yours. Thank god for Little Big Men. Would be awesome to see them on the other side of the table from my Greeks. Enjoy drooling over your work.

    1. Mark, hehehe... you crack me up :o) any time regarding to do battle with your Greeks. It will be a long march from Washington State to reach your realm, know as Minnesota...but having said that and knowing my luck Monty (who is also from Minnesota) will flank my forces or better still intercept my forces :o) with his Pontic Army.

      anyway... thanks for your kind words Mark,

      cheers,

    2. Phil, if only you knew how many times Monty has flanked me. Can I send him to Washington so you can teach his Pontics a lesson in battlefield etiquette?

    1. oh wow!...Thanks Peter, I appreciate your kind words. Xyston miniatures are the best 15mm to collect and paint and I enjoyed working on the Persians, great looking figures.

  13. These are great Phil, I like the colours you used. I gave my brother and nephew a xyston Macedonian army for chrimbo and plan to do the Persians myself. It turned out on Boxing Day my brother had actually picked up a few packs of xyston Persians at a show bring and buy! They are not figures I received in my army set so very handy!

    1. Thanks Paul for your kind words...

      yes indeed very handy to have the extra packs. I think I have about 38 Persian Xyston packs enough figures to put together 300-600 points Impetvs Army and perhaps one more DBA army.

      I love the Xyston figures they are the best!

      Happy New Year Paul, to your family and friends!

      cheers
