sassanid cataphracts

Work continues on my 15mm Ancients Sassanid army. I think they came out great and prove the propriety and virtue of block painting. I’m able to finish about a stand a week (typically 5 days, a couple of hours a day) and that is even painting slow while being neat and meticulous. Speed painting I…

sassanid war elephants

Nothing like the feeling of completing a bunch of cheesy, whine inducing, death star making, min/maxing, rage quitting filth! jk. Here are some War and Empire 15mm Ancients Sassanid war elephants from Forged in Battle. Cool models, fun to make and paint. I’m glad I had some spare infantry to tart up the bases a…

armoured daylami warriors

Work continues on my 15mm Ancients Sassanian Persian army. The figs are Forged in Battle from their exemplar War and Empire range. These are well armoured daylami warriors, therefore really only suitable for the waning years of the Sassanid state before the Islamic storm swept them from history. Regardless they still look really cool and…

rebased sassanid spearmen

Once I determined to rebase my War & Empire 15mm Sassanid Persians I also decided now would be a good time to rationalize and expand the collection to focus on an actual army list. For now I’m using L’Art de la Guerre with some input from Aurelian and Hail Caesar but we’ll see. Not much…

This is another great pack of minis from Forged in Battle with 10 different sculpts! I have one complaint about the Forged in Battle minis, the integral bases are too…

sassanid persian horse archers

Well I am proud to announce a new unit. Sassanid Persian Horse Archers in 15mm by Forged in Battle in the War and Empire range, code WE-PS07. Excellent sculpts and gorgeous horses, I almost like them as much as the minifig horses. I still find they (the horses) look a little too thin, I feel…
