Well, did the first test runs on the new moulds - be a while before I've got them fully sorted. I'm also continuing with the 8Bw elements of Immortals and have completed another one.
This is the current state of play, 3 Immortal 8Bw elements and 1 Mede 8Bw element.
I like the colour scheme on the new Immortal element - could be
convinced to use it for a full sized unit. On the other hand, it's
another 'blue' unit.
Only managed to produce 6 useable Medes on the test run so added an officer and standard bearer. The figures themselves are not quite as good as the Immortal figure - the hat and hair simply being from the officer figure is not as convincing as I would like. It's a green unit, which I'm short of, so does suffer a bit from 'green overload' with the base.
So overall a reasonable start, need to get a few more of the robed Persian archers for the next element.
