Minimum II/37 Parthians complete!

Whether I end up adding foot, or not, I've finished the 4x4Kn cataphracts and 8x2LH horse archers required to get Parthians on a table. As opponents of both Early Impie and MidImpie Romans they are a very useful side to have.

HaT and DBA3.0 set me a puzzle

What to do about Parthian foot, if anything? HaT's foot number six, three archers three javelin. The 3.0 options include: 2 Ps (archers), 2 3Ax (mountaineers which could be javelin and handaxe) and those swap with 2 3Bw (city militia)!

The way I see these elements, I can add in one skythian foot archer to make the 4 Ps minis needed, 3 skythian handaxe minis to make the number of Ax minis needed, and rope in Roman Auxiliary eastern archers if I want the 6 Bw minis the city militia would need.
