Warlord Macedonian Royal Guard
First post for the year - here are a some photos of the Warlord Games Macedonian Royal Guard with Foundry Command. I've had these on my painting table for ages but seeing the Alexander the Great exhibition in Sydney a few weeks ago (see previous post) has inspired me to finish them off over the holidays.
I've painted them as Argyraspides (Silver Shields) and converted a few of the Warlord phalangites to make up the unit, by adding blobs of green stuff on the sides of helmets as plumes. The Macedonian Royal Guard are the same figures as the Warlord phalangites but you also get twenty four metal heads and embossed shields. Fitting the metal heads and plastic torso can be a bit tricky and the poses leaning forward tend to become top heavy. By using polystyrene glue first to seat the head and reinforcing it with super glue you do get a very strong bond.
Best wishes to everyone for 2013!
