Gary got some of the new figures for the phalanx and has painted them up in short time.
We have started remaking the moulds for the Phalanx figures, to date the unarmoured headless PH28,Linothorax PH29 and the 2 commands have been completed PH13+14. This has allowed us to make small changes to the figures. The two commands have changed to contain 4 useful figures ie only 1 musician instead of 2.
The rest of the figures should be complete by end of this week start of next. Meanwhile the mounted and dismounted command figures and the seleucid cavalry are progressing well.
Adam has been at me to do Ptolemaic phalangites for some time so when he had completed the later style linothorax he had to have some. That said they will do all the Later successor armies. The character pack is also useful in the imitation legionary units, the Thorakitai units etc.
To all, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We will be easing down towards the end of the week and will start back again in the New Year. All orders received before Wednesday will be posted before we stop, those after that will have to wait. Adam has had a few health issues that has slowed his sculpting down so we have missed our estimated release dates for the Seleucid cavalry later phalangites and advancing/attacking thureophoroi, they are still progressing and nothing has been cut. Once they have been completed we will start on the Byzantines.
Keith and Adam
We added the linothorax standing figures to the store in various guises. The figure was created to fill gaps in the ranges and so we can now offer Thorakitai/Thureophoroi in linothorax, Late period Hoplites, and imitation legionaries in the lighter armour. Other uses could be for eastern late republican legionaries as shown on the Glanum monument (although we think they are Pontic or Seleucid Imitation legionaries) which are shown with the unusual helmets and round hoplons. We can vary the packs to suit needs so just ask.
I forgot to photograph the grey figures for the online store before I painted them, so here they are in my best wargaming standard..lol
Garry completed his unit of Thorakitai in quick time, he has allowed us to share the results.
