Got an Achaemenid army already, but maybe one more unit of noble cavalry would be justifiable....

Normally I would eshew the Persians.

Too bright. Too many troop types.

However ...


On another question - Leon, are there any plans for bringing back the ancient ships?   Can't do Marathon without ships.

I've checked with Jimmy James and the Vagabonds (from 1976) and indeed they are quite categorical that "Now is the time".
Although, to be fair, when I subsequently searched Google to check the actual lyrics of the song I couldn't see mention of the word "Achaemenid" at all. But that's probably because they couldn't think of a suitable rhyme.

Had a chap round from the local council's Highway Dept, yesterday afternoon, about some 'No Parking' signs we'd put on our grass verge.

Same chap that I've met before, and knew he had an interest in toy soldiers (though in a rather larger scale).....He obviously knew I was working, as I was wearing the Optivisor when I answered the door.
After sorting out the signs, he asked me what I was working on...."Ancient Persians ", I replied.
"Oh, Xerxes and that ?" Said he.

Guess what figure I'd just started ?

Talk about a coincidence ! Shocked (Absolutely True !)

Cheers - Phil
