I just finished most of an early Achaemenid army for DBA (I/60c). It is "most of" because the army pack was short a few elements (Ax, 2Ps and Hd) so I am waiting for Gord from Sentrybox to send me some blisters to fill in the missing guys.

The army consists of 2 sparabara (8Bw)

Up to 2 Immortals (4Bw):

Or up to 2 4Ax
Another bow (3Bw) and a light horse (2LH):
And 2 cavalry (general)
This is definitely a bad-going oriented army, the 3 mounted elements give it some mobility for flanking, but it will need lots of terrain to have any success, especially against Mark's Kushites or Greeks. Unfortunately it is Agg 3 so will often fight in the opponents terrain choice. At least it is designed to kill elephants though.

I like the way it looks, but I think it will lose more often than it wins.


  1. They look great! I would never have the nards to paint in this pallette!

  2. Good work, Dave. When can we test their mettle?

  3. They debut at EDBAG next Tuesday.

    Bob, I picked up a whole pile of Vallejo pastels at Chaos Gaming clearout. Perfect excuse to give it a go.


  4. BSER will announce Rajasthan Board 8th Result 2021 in the first week of June2021. More than 11 lakh students will be waiting for the 8th board. Rajasthan 8th Board Result 2021 Only students who appear for March 2021 will be able to access 2021 Class 8 result.
