Merry Xmas everyone

Happily, no time for painting at the moment - the tree is right in front of my painting area...

Cyrus the Great army update

Lot's of individual units so far, seems about time to do an update on the army.

Most units have been seen before. These archers are from Harry's collection and haven't been altered by me other than rebasing.

These are one of my conversions - PE4 with the bowcase removed and shield replaced by a Rose violin shaped one. One of the nicer aspects of these armies is the sheer number of conversions in them - seems to add to the satisfaction somehow.

One day finding myself sitting in a room in a community centre for 3 hours (waiting for a student I assumed wasn't coming  in advance) I spent part of the time drawing up and cutting out cabs for a few chariots and a couple of war wagons. One General's chariot and two warwagons well on the way to completion, couple more scythed chariots will follow. That should then just about complete this army. Probably.

Cyrus the Great's Guard

Trouble with this time of year, distractions...

So, done some Immortals but can't really call them that because it might be a bit early. 'Guard' should fit the bill.

I've gone for the 'blue' look - lots of my various Immortal units, both Garrison and Minifigs, seem to be blue. The colour just seems to suite them. I've also paid a bit more attention to the quivers - decorated rather than plain.
