Indian Archers









Here are a few photos of some Indian archers, the first unit I've painted for King Porus' Indian army to fight Alexander. Seeing a Command & Colours Ancients demo game of the Battle of Hydaspes, at MOAB 2012 a few weeks ago, has got me inspired to start on my Indian army. These figures are a mix of 1st Corps, Newline, Old Glory and Vendel/Molon Labe.

I particularly like the 1st Corps and Newline Indian ranges and most of my army will be 1st Corp, Old Glory and Newline. The Vendel/Molon Labe figures are nice, chunky and cheap as well,  (8 figures for $12 AUD), but the castings I had were full of air pockets which I had to fill with green stuff so I'm not sure if I will be adding any more to the army at this stage.
