Persian Immortals



Just finished up some Persian Immortals, or possibly Persian Kardaces depending on how you read the sources. Herodotus describes them as having hoplons with no blazon and polished to a mirror like brightness. In any event they will give my Persian army some much needed strength.

    1. THanks for the kind words. These are black tree design 28mm figures. I have been very pleased with the btd Persians. The sculptor really seems to have taken the time to get them sculpted with accuracy in mind. It was very difficult to find Persians with the Greek style linothorax armor and hoplon shields, but BTD came through for me. Thanks again,
      David

  2. They are great, really! I've got immortals in 15mm...but yours are amazing! I love the positions, too.

  5. Persian Immortals have always been my favorite ancient unit. I am now doing some 20mm plastic Zvezda figures.
