Psiloi and Auxilia - Persian subject lights

Over the years I have completed a lot of conversions that never quite made it into 'production mode.' However, these figures are coming into their own as far as the DBA armies go!

The first two elements are just generic light javelin/shield armed peltast/psiloi types - 3Ax and 2Ps. They represent all the javelin/shield subjects such as Cabalees, Moschi,Tibareni, Mares and Colchians. May repaint the shields sometime but not yet.

Not really accurate but this lot represent the Ethiopians. In theory, of course, should have spears tipped with gaelle horns, wouldn't have such tidy hairstyles and no ostrich feather headgear.  As I said, not really accurate.


  1. These remind m of Tony Bath's figures (a good thing), except they're round of course. I've always had a thing for ancients. Were time and money infinite, I'd indulge in some Romans, Greeks, and suitable enemies.

    Best Regards,


    1. Well, same era, same tradition and same influences I suppose.
