One of nice changes to the DBA Sassanid list is the addition of more LH. Pictured here are new nomad horse archers supported by newly purchased and painted cataphract.
I chose lighter shades of yellow, lavender, green and linen for the tunics and darker colours of blue, madder red and red brown for the trousers. The figures are a mix of Parthian and Sarmatian horse archers. The Old Glory Sassanid horse archers were not used as they sports a globe hat which is not quite right.
The cataphract, also from Old Glory, are escorting a Royal commander and standard bearers supplied by the Italian manufacture of Strategia Nova (Miniature Wars).
These elements bring the Sassanid collection to 61 elements which should cover the three sub lists.
