A couple more units have arrived for the ancients. These are all old Heinrichsen figures, although the upainted cavalry castings are 2011 re-issues of the original set from 1921. I bought two sets in order to make a complete unit. Each contains two command figures and 8 troopers, giving me a nice 18-figure unit once they are combined and painted.
I'm a little disappointed that one of these riders has a shield and the other doesn't. Could further break it down with another two sets of course, but not something I want to spend the money on so they'll have to do as is.
And here's a quite appealing set of 20 ancient Greeks, apparently peltasts although they wear the old-fashioned crested Corinthian helmets. I got these on eBay, paid rather more than I wanted to as someone bid me up on it, but I think they'll look very good as a peltast formation once I get around to repainting them.
I like this officer that came with the peltasts. Quite old-fashioned and not sure what the designer was thinking of with the helmet, looks more like Renaissance parade armor. But I think he'll make a fine Hyborian era general.
Making good headway on the phalanx, finished 4 more figures yesterday, 28 down, 8 to go.
