Parthia was a country in what is now North-East Iran. It reached its peak under Mithridates & often found itself in conflict with Rome. As a Scythian people they were naturally gifted horsemen & archers & the bulk of their army was therefore mounted light archers. One feature of their tactics was the ability to race toward an enemy & turn sharply away, firing arrows behind them as they went, hence the term ‘Parthian shot’. While Scythians have been modelled before this is the first set that is specifically Parthian light cavalry.
The main weapon of the light cavalry was the powerful composite bow & though they often carried edged weapons it is the bow that is featured here.

Sculpting is reasonable with fair detail & proportions. The men fit the horses well enough but will need gluing. On our sample we found no flash at all & no excess plastic to be removed.
The single foot pose has been included because it is called for in DBA rules & while not very important foot warriors were sometimes featured in Parthian armies.
With more poses than the traditional HäT offering in the past & a reasonable sculpting job, these accurate figures finally mean the armies of Parthia can be recreated as they face their formidable neighbours. A long-awaited & worthwhile set.
