I would never field all these troops at once, but behold my Achaemenid Persian army!
Or at least as much as the camera lens would fit! (The table was two feet wide and four feet long and it was packed solid!)
The Persians themselves are in the center with their mercenaries and subject nations troops out towards the flanks (including some of the Indian elephants that I did an earlier post on!) I get to pick and choose who fights depending on the era and the opponent.
Nearly 500 figures in this lot. It's not my biggest army though. I have 641 Napoleonic French, with about 200 infantry still to do! Total figures painted has now topped 9,500 - still hoping for 10,000 before Jan. 1, 2010.
