THE SELEUCIDS ARE COMING!

From the East a great Empire is stirring, an immense horde is preparing to strike. Sharpen your weapon's, hide your women folk and prepare for enslavement.

The Seleucid Kingdom embraced most of the Asian territory conquered by Alexander and unified under Seleucus I and his descendants. The core of the army were Hellenistic units, many descended from Alexanders original Macedonian troops. The Seleucid army contained elephants, thorakitai, phalangites, companion cavalry and horse archers.

I am preparing a 10mm army at present containing all of the above. Photographs to follow.
