DBA Persian Army

DBA Persian Psiloi Complete

Persian Psiloi are Complete

After spray-bombing in white, I painted their parts in this order:
1 – flesh (then washed)
2 – green tunics
3 – brown straps
4 – wash green and brown with mud
5 – beige pants (then wash folds only)
6 – boots
7 – highlight greens and browns

At the moment I haven’t painted their bases – I’m unsure what their basing will be. But I consider these guys done – they’re not a fancy troop, but that’s 3 of 12 bases done!

    I can’t believe you aren’t going to do the scythed chariot! Or are you? This army has quite a few options, which means for a lot more painting… But if you go with the third psiloi, then you abandon the fantastically disposable and dramatic scythed chariot! Happy to see these figs coming together!

      Don’t worry Neldoreth, all options are going to be painted up. I’m assembling the scythed chariot now, as I paint up my Auxilia! Thanks for writing.:]

    Hi Dave.
    I finally found your site again! Your Persians are coming along nicely. Too bad work is getting in the way :))

      Hi David – thanks. They’re really easy to paint once you’re committed to using washes and highlighting with the original colour. Work is taking off right now, so painting is mostly on hold…
