Successor Commanders and Generals for the 2nd and 3rd Macedonian Wars

Adam added the following packs to fill gaps in the later Successor commands. They have been modeled on certain features that can be used to identify them with certain commanders but as we have found they all copied one another so they are also fairly generic. The two full command sets have the two most famous while we decided to add the single figures to further the choice, we will exchange the commanders if requested eg SUC16 in set SUC14. Hope that makes sense.

Piero and Zaccaria’s Aventine collection

Piero send us some lovely photos of a phalanx that he had painted and some Etruscans painted by his friend Zaccaria, all very nice IMHO.

Remoulding of the Phalanx range

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.(Update – PH1-12 also now done.) 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.

Adams Later Pike Phalanx

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.

Christmas Greatings

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.

Cheers
Keith and Adam
