Foot Finally Finished

Good afternoon,

Yay for the holidays!

I have finally brought out my paints once more. I'd forgotten how relaxing it all is - sitting here, chipping away at the pile in no particular hurry, listening/watching You Tube. Very nice.

Anyhow, over the course of, well, yesterday, I finally finished the final foot elements for my Early Achaemenid Persian DBA army.

And their first mounted element.

Which makes...

  • 4 x 8Bw - 48 figures (mine are actually 8Bw + 4Sp!)
  • 3 x 7Hd - 21 figures
  • 1 x 3Ax - 3 figures
  • 2 x 2Ps - 4 figures
  • 1 x 4Sp - 4 figures (Greek allies)
= 80 infantry figures. For one army!

Now to get these...

  • 1 Ch Gen
  • 2 Cv
...done...before I go back to school!



  1. Great to see you painting again Nick!
    Enjoy your holidays, and have a great Christmas.

    1. Thanks John. Yeah, it's been a while!

      Merry Christmas to you too mate.

    1. Thanks Paul.

      Got another a/c stashed away? Fancy an a/c build over January? Merlins (I've a Mk IX Spit bound for Italy - ideally, the one that attacked a Kiwi Tank back in the day! Or a TAF 3 Sqn Mustang, just 'cause...), or even a twin? I've a ME-110 set aside for Crete.

  3. Great work, Nick. I was exactly the same yesterday; finally finished (for now) the stresses of teaching college and sat down to doodle along at my stalled Old West skirmish game. It's been ages - Merry Christmas BTW!

    1. Hi Monty,

      You go for it man! You doodle to your heart's content!

      Merry Christmas dude!

    Good start to the hols. I have a couple of early jets awaiting construction and was going to suggest a kit build over the summer ..

    1. Sweet. All we need is an overall theme to link them all up...
