Victrix Greek Archers













Here are a few photos of the Greek archers that you get as part of the new plastic Victrix Greek Unarmoured Hoplites and Archers box set. You get eight archers and forty eight unarmoured hoplites in a box. This is the perfect size for a small unit of skirmishers in Hail Caesar, the way I have my unit sizes - hence the movement tray. These archers are simply superb figures, highly detailed with great animated poses and compare more than favourably with most existing metal ranges. There are some comparison shots below.

I had a few issues with my order (missing sprues and transfers) but Julian kindly sent replacements. My painting hasn't really done justice to these figures but there are some superb painted examples on the Vicrix website of these figures, the unarmoured Hoplites, as well as their other new box set of Greek peltasts and slingers and a preview of their forth coming Republican Roman legionaries sets. Definitely worth checking out if you haven't already done so!

    1. Thanks Dean - yes they all seem to get released at Salute. The GB Arab spearmen and Fireforge Mongols are really great figures too.

  6. Thanks Phil, for some reason new plastic figures motivate me too finish painting more than metal does.

  7. Excellent work, Mike! There is nothing about these figures that gives them away as plastics. They're on par, scupltwise, with metals. Now if only I could find a partner to do ancients in 28mm.

  8. Thanks Monty, there so many great plastic 28mm ranges around now and in many ways they're easier to paint and put together than metals. I'm sure there must be someone itching to do 28mm ancients, you can start with your Saga warbands!

    1. Thanks FMB, space is definitely an issue with heaps of 28mm!
