Here we have some images of the beginnings of the unarmoured Persian cavalry set. This is the first figure of 4 body and horse variants with lots of head and arm options.



The figure can represent Persian cavalry from the early to the late Achaemenid empire. The inclusion of the bow case makes these early Achaemenid cavalry as they were armed with javelins, hand weapons and bow. The later Persian cavalry were armed with javelins and hand weapons. The Early Persians would spend time peppering the enemy at distance with archery fire and close with them once they were weakened. The later Persian cavalry would charge and hurl their javelins and then close with hand weapons such as swords and hand axes.



Numerous head options are being included to represent native Persian but also to portray the various nationalities and colonist cavalry that made up the vast Persian army.



Heavy cavalry will follow this set and we will be doing horse archers and half armoured cavalry.

They would seem to have some conversion potential as Scythians, too.

PRODUCT UPDATE: PERSIAN CAVALRY RENDERS

Here we have the final Persian un-armoured cavalry figure. This figure has the additional option of a cloak to make him into an officer figure.

All riders fit all horses and many of the arms are interchangeable between all figures.

This makes for a very dynamic set of Persian cavalry, covering troops from the early Achaemenid empire of the 5th Century to later Achaemenid cavalry that fought the civil wars and Alexander. They could easily be used in Alexandrian Successor armies and the forces of Pontus.

We will be starting sculpting the Persian heavy cavalry next. These will have a mixture of scale, Linothorax and quilted armour. Extra heavy cavalry with horse armour will be a separate set.

There might be a bit of a delay getting these tooled due to the World Health crisis, lots of companies have shut down for a period of time and that includes the people that do our tooling.

This will cause a backlog for tooling and production. We will keep our sculptors busy with new projects so that when things start to get back to normal there will be a glut of new sets to look forward to.
