After 18 months of stripping paint, drilling spears and painting shields, shields and more shields my Greek hoplite army using only vintage figures is now complete*. Nearly 200 hoplites and supporting troops entirely from Garrison, Hinchliffe and Minifigs. The sculpts have mostly held up really well over the years and some are absolutely charming. At the core of the army is a number of figures that I received for Christmas circa 1978 and have now finally been painted! Others have been found on eBay and also topped up by kind donations from the lovely Iain Burt, Andy McMaster and Norman D Landings. The basing is for Warhammer Ancient Battles and hopefully once the plague is over they will be able to fight against Henry Hyde’s Byzarbians in our long planned campaign
* yes that does actually mean finished
First quick overview of the army lined up for parade…..
