Here are some photos of two units of Foundry Scythians I've just finished. New allies for Achaemenid Persian army that is steadily growing.

Very nice models and rewarding results. Painting these tribal types takes me a lot longer than most other types of figures. I'm sure many of you agree.

Anyway, hope you like the pictures.

Well worth the effort though – I've always liked those figures, and you've done a hell of a nice job on them.

Nicely done – they will fit into a number of armies as useful allies. 3 cavalry to a base is a good idea – been using these recently for Hail Caesar.

Those are brilliant Mick, may they bring home many heads :)
Cheers and again lovely painting, Foundry figures yes?

you have done an amazing job on these rather nice Perry Foundry figures.
I will use this a painting reference. They will make
perfect Assyrian or Neo Babylonian allies.
