Victrix Greek Peltasts















Here are a couple of photos some Victrix Greek Peltasts which I've just finished painting and basing. Some of these saw action in our Battle of Mantinea refight last weekend. Craig had painted up a unit of these as well and we both made the same mistake of gluing the shields with rims on the outside instead of the inside. The LBM peltast shield transfers don't fit if you do this! So I've just painted most of them with hide shields but still have another 32 from the box to do with the transfers. The archers in the photos below are a mix of Gorgon Studios Spartan archers and Foundry Greek archers.

  1. well I guess you guys learn from your minor mistakes, but the end results are awesome! great looking unit and single figures plus the basing look good as well....marvelous!

    oh...: any issues putting the plastic figures together or was a breeze?

    cheers,

  2. Thanks Phil, I find putting together most plastics is usually pretty straightforward, not much more effort than preparing metal figures - gluing spears, shields, undercoating etc. It does help if you read the instructions and check the illustrations!
