In the meantime, here's some factory painted hoplites I got from a wargamer/collector named Paul in Arizona. Our deal was a combination, he had some extra Kielers and we split a few sets of Lampert (Frankfurter Zinnfiguren) ancients which I had ordered from Germany. Lampert has an amazing selection of Republican Romans and other contemporary figures, by the way. He doesn't speak English or take Paypal which complicates things, but he's very willing to send figures outside of Germany if you're willing to do things the German way.
But I digress:
Wish I had more of the peltasts, been keeping an eye out for them. Sooner or later I'll get around to reworking a unit or two of hoplites in my own style. And now for the bizarre:
|Kieler Carthaginian Infantry|
Could be the worst set Kieler ever produced from the standpoint of historical accuracy, comically bad in some ways. Bad history maybe, but vigorous and appealing figures for all that. I think they'll be just fine for Hyborian age warriors.
