Persian Kardakes

 







Here's a unit of Persian Kardakes that I've just finished painting. These all Victrix figures and transfers from the recently released Persian Unarmoured Spearmen. Combined with the Persian Unarmoured Archers these are really versatile and can be used to make early Persian unarmoured sparabara and archers, Kardakes like these for a late Persian army, as well as takabara peltasts and slingers. Options only increase with the most recent Victrix releases, Persian Armoured Archers and Persian Armoured Spearmen. I can't wait for the cavalry!
