Shields, useful for all sorts of light troops
and the Persian MAP8 - Scythed Chariots
The horse archers, again, useful for all sorts of armies, the Spearmen less so, I think. In two ranks barely fitting on a 2cm deep base, they carry their shield at the side, so don't look quite right from the front with their slender profile.
There's no Sparabara code in the Persian H&R line, so I had kinda hoped that these were intended as such and carried paveses, but no luck.
Now for some painted examples:
MAP07 Armored Cavalry. I should do more with the shields, like in the next picture:
Those will have to do for my Sparabara. I thought of maybe putting a line of the Immortals above on a narrow 1.5cm base (on 1cm they might topple over too easily) in front of each stand to better represent them.
