Xyston Later Achaemenid Persian 15mm DBA Army

A journey to the east for the Later Achaemenid Persians, and here they are in full array

As this is the later Persians they are using heavier infantry to bolster the battle line

But they still have plenty of light troops, below are the Ax and Ps...

...and mounted troops to work around the flanks, with the Cavalry and Light Horse elements

If that doesn't work they have the blunt instrument of the scythed chariot to throw forward
Finally, to command and co-ordinate everything there is the general element which can be deployed as cavalry or in a chariot. I have based the painting of the generals chariot on the famous Roman mosaic.
