Early persian were using typically eastern tactics based on cavalry and archery In Persia and Media small but resilent horses were bred. They were ideal for the light horse.
During many battles, including ones against the Ionian Greekst, POersians were winning due to outflanking the enemy and attacking his flanks. Fast and well prepared light horse were an important element of these maneouvers.

Figure prepared by Warlord Games for SALUTE 2017 - female Red Guard from the October Revolution.
Figurka moim zdaniem dość średnia. Brakuje jej na przykład broni, a niektóre detale są zbyt uproszczone. Stanowiła jednak miłą wprawkę w malowaniu figurek 28mm. Poeksperymentowałem między innymi z czerwonym sztandarem.
In my opinion figure rather average. It lacks for example weapon and some details are oversimplified. However it was good for testing some painting techniques for 28mm figures like painting the red banner.

Tiznaos - "tars" as they were called in Spain. They were armoured trucks of various types. The name was invented in 1934 when during the uprising in Asturias, miners greased up their improvised armoured vehicles with tar that allegedly improved their armour and helped to conceal the vehicle.
Especially at the beginning of the SCW in 1936 both sides lacked real armour and improvised armoured cars were build on a basis of trucks and buses to handle these shortages.
Model w skali 1/100 mało znanego producenta Panzer Garage, udało mi się nabyć podczas ostatniej wizyty w Madrycie. Nie jestem fanem modeli żywicznych, ale uwielbiam opancerzone ciężarówki, więc nie mogłem się powstrzymać.
Model in 1/100 scale by wider unknown Panzer Garage company. I bought the model during my last visit to Madrid. I'm not a great fan of the resin models but love armoured trucks, so couldn't resist.
