From MilesR: Sassy Sassanids (782 Points)
One thing I should say is the casting quality is superb and Forged in Battles quality control is excellent - I've been through 31 packs and have yet to experience missing or damaged parts.
As for the tally, lets see:
110 Calvary figures for 440 points
137 Sassanid Infantry for 274 Points
24 Roman Aux Infantry for 48 points
2 Ellies at 10 points each for 20 points
- I counted each ellie as a vehicle (6 pts) plus one full and 2 half figures per Ellie is another 4 so 10 points per pachyderm.
Grand Total 782 points
This should put me over last years total, so I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I do want to apologize for not being as active in the chatter with this year's forum - business and family issues were a bit more pressing than usual
A very fine force, Miles!
I can't think of any better reason to take a Sassanid force than elephants and cataphract units. I don't think you over did the color either as heavy horse and elephants should have a hot rod appearance.
They look very impressive and that isn't a slight against the foot sloggers that are also bright and detailed very well.
I am rather glad you posted them on your new table too as it gives us another gander at the brilliant work you did ( just need a fortified town at the dead end road)
I didn't forget the Roman Marines left at the river living up to the ideals of Horatio either.
I quite like them and their armor which is still distinctly Roman and heavy looking.
Nice work and congrats on squashing your goal!
