Sassanid Javelinmen #2


A second unit of Spear-chuckers  makes its way off the painting table and into the ranks of my Sassanid army.


Once again, while they are a cut above the rabble masses of spearmen, one shouldn't expect too  much of them, especuially when faced by Roman Legionaries or Palmyran Cataphracts!


The dark "Magic Wash" once again brings out the details nicely. 


Let your Javelins fly!

  1. Peter, your brushes continue to fly! Will you maintain this pace following Hstoricon?

  2. Good Lord, I hope not! :-)
    Actually, it might continue for a bit if I finish off the remaining Roman, Palmyran and Sassanid figures I have on hand, plus 30 each OG Libyans and Philistines. After that, the tentative plan is to start working on the Spanish Napoleonic figures I have on hand. The main stumbling back is the grossly disparate size between the Front Rank Grenadiers and the Dos de Mayo Line Infantry, and the still pending decision for where the rest of the army, especially the Cavalry, will come from.

    1. Thanks, Jake; that will probably be in the post Historicon pictures!

  5. Excellent work! The Sassanids are fascinating... but you're a better man than I for painting them.

    1. If I were a more talented painter I could go crazy with patterns on the shields and robes of their heavy cavalry, but that isn't happening, so they aren't hard to paint. I like the distinctive look of the Sassanids.
