Got the first of the heavy Hyrkanian infantry units finished. I think I might try and make three different "looking" units rather than replicating the same figures each time just to add some visual interest to the table even though in the game, all three units function the same way. Here they are.
Sort of hard to see in the picture but I went with a samurai/Eastern armor type using paper to create the flat shoulder protection. Wasn't difficult and it was easy to paint.
You can see the "samurai-looking" helmets a little better here. Just paper wrapped around and painted to look like the segmented armor they have protecting their necks.
I wanted to go with a shield that wasn't really "historical" to give them a bit more of a fantasy flavor.
I planned to do a cavalry unit next, but I have to order some of the necessary pieces. So I'll probably do a unit of Hyperborean heavy infantry.
