15mm Early Achaemenid Persian Empire, 5th Century BC

Persian Immortal painted by
Chris Yaro.
The Persian Empire was the largest of the ancient world. A successor to the Median Empire, it was forged by war of many different peoples, but was generally ruled fairly. Its military was built around a core of Iranian warriors, many of whom fought on foot in great regiments (myriads) using bows, protected by a front rank of spearmen using large wicker shields to deflect the archery of the enemy. Others fought on horseback and again favoured the bow as the decisive weapon. There was an elite of infantry called the Immortals who apparently fought similarly to the masses of infantry, although better armed, armoured, and disciplined.

Although the empire was Persian the troops generally dressed in the rugged and practical Median garb and that is how our models are depicted. The first releases will be of the Iranian core troops, foot and then horse, and then the subject peoples will be gradually added, starting with the Saka.
