I needed some tufts for my bases, which look quite nice when applied
|Minifigs 25mm Thracian and generic peltasts|
I chose MiniNatur moss (early fall) and short tufts (late fall) to simulate the sparse Greek countryside.
Here are some more shots of peltasts with these applied;
I mentioned my later Spartans from foundry, here's WIP on those;
|Foundry Spartan command|
|WIP on another hoplite|
|Need to do his shield and touch up some areas|
|later hoplite. I think his spear may be too long for that period.|
I picked up some other foundry Greeks at the show, though these are character figures really.
Although, if I base them up on 2p coins, I can add them to sabots like this;
|Sabot base from Warbases for miniatures based on 2p coins|
My main purchase was some Victrix peltasts, javelin men and slingers:
Here's a look at the sprues;
|There are 6 of these|
|And four of these smaller sprues.|
56 figures in total, and I picked them up at nearly a fiver off list price, which was nice.
Other than that, I have 'finished' one of the unarmoured Vendel hoplites. Still really not very happy with it though. I'll get the spears and shields on them all, and they will have to do.
