Early Achaemenid Persian infantry

I've had an Early Achaemenid Persian army for quiet a while but have only recently got round to taking photos of it. Some of the figures are really old and include Minifigs, Hinchliffe and Greenwood & Ball. I also have unpainted, some of the lovely Immortal Miniatures Persians and I'm really looking forward to the release of their plastic Persian sparabara.

Four great books on this subject worth checking out, in no particular order, are The Greco-Persian War by Peter Green, The Achaemenid Persian Army by Duncan Head, Shadows in the Desert: Ancient Persia at War by Dr Kaveh Farrokh and, of course, Herodotus' Histories (the Landmark edition is really nice even if you already have the Penguin paperback).

Here are a few photos of the infantry:

Greenwood and Ball, Hinchliffe and Old Glory - Immortals

Vendel - Egyptian Marines

Vendel and Old Glory - Persian Sparabara

Minifig and Newline - Persian Slingers
