All the above are 1st Corps miniatures which have turned out alright despite being really fiddly to paint. They're a little on the small side compared to the Foundry miniatures that make up the bulk of my Hellenistic cavalry and the horses aren't quite there anatomically, but all that armour does conceal most of the concerns with the horses. It will be interesting to see how they match up with the A&A Parthians that are currently en route, comparison pictures to follow.
N.B. For the Hetairoi xystons I used left over spears from the Immortal Hoplite set with the moulded on arms removed. With hindsight I could have removed the hands of the metal miniatures, drilled and pinned the arm and then attached the spears via the moulded hand; but it was a bit late before I hit upon the idea and besides the cyanoacrylate seems to have formed an adequate bond.
