Battle of Cunaxa 401 B.C. Xenophon’s War, SET 3
Unpainted plastic soldiers in 1/72 scale depicting Persian Cavalry during the Battle of Cunaxa, a “civil war” battle between the Persian king Artaxerxes II and his brother Cyrus the Younger. Cyrus had a large contingent of Greek mercenaries, know as “The Ten thousands” that eventually won the battle, but Cyrus died on the battle and Greek troops were left without allies in the middle of the Persian Empire but eventually they were able to return to safe Greek colonies through Corduene and Armenia.
This box contains a mix of mounted and foot figures, for a total of 12 figures in 12 poses. Ten are mounted figures and there are two on foot figures. The box also contains eight horses in four poses and two Bactrian camels in a single pose which is an excellent addition.
Thought both sides had Persian cavalry, and this set can work for both, Artaxerxes had the largest contingent of Persian Cavalry in the battle, considered as the best of the world at the time.
