Persian Armoured Cavalryman


This is the Persian Armoured Cavalryman that first appears in the Miniature Figurines 72/73 catalogue as PBC 25s, and subsequently in the 75 catalogue as PBC 25. 

As with all the 'PB' range it is derived from Phil Barker's pair of books Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars and Armies and Enemies of Imperial Rome. PBC standing for Phil Barker Cavalry. This figure corresponds with illustration 25 in AMPW.

He is riding the Persian Cavalry Horse PBH 60, the code '60' being stamped on the upper surface of the base in the usual fashion . For some reason this particular horse has been painted on one side before further efforts were abandoned. Perhaps exhaustion set in.
