I had a go, in my usual quick method of painting, on one of Adam’s new mounted commanders. I picked the 1/2 armoured horse to see what the soon to be released companions will look like. Painted in around 2 hours with 15mins basing it will do for the table.
Adam arrived this morning with the Mounted Commanders. All now in the shop. Been a tad busy this week and the turnaround on orders has slipped a bit, if you are waiting for them to drop through your door I think all will be up to date by Tuesday.
Slideshow of the three Successors.
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 send us some lovely photos of a phalanx that he had painted and some Etruscans painted by his friend Zaccaria, all very nice IMHO.
Gary built this unit using the recent Thorakitai figures and using a few different heads and shields to give them a bit of variation.
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.(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.
