Hoplites


Finally finished 4 units of hoplites based for TtS.
Figures are Foundry miniatures and some of the shields have LBM transfers on them.
I wish I could say I painted the lot but I only did about one and a half bases worth, The rest I purchased second hand off a friend. They had hand painted shields which looked great. I just changed the old lead spears for steel ones and redid the bronze.






 I've had enough of hoplites for a while.

    1. Cheers Carlo, Actually out of the 12 ranks only 3 have 7 figures. I cheated.

  2. Those are lovely! Not a bad troop type either, I enjoyed using mine at Chalgrove last year.

    1. I'm just glad I didn't have to paint them all Dean, otherwise I'd still be going into the new year sometime.
      Cheers.

    1. Thanks Phil. I think painting TtS unit bases is more rewarding than the old WAB singles.
