Painting - Greeks

Hello All,

So I have had a chance to get a bunch more Greeks painted up. I still have an alternate warlord to finish, and maybe a bit more stuff but maybe not. Anyway here is a look at the stuff I have got completed in the last couple of weeks.

First up is a second unit of hearthguard. This time one of them has a horn because I thought it seemed cool. Also I switched to painting their shirts red and decided that it looks better that way. Some of the decals are a bit messed up on these guys, it is hard to get them to lie perfectly flat on the doomed surface. But I started to put more effort into them after this being more careful pressing them down and using some softener to try and melt them down.

I also finished up a second unit of warriors with spears. This time in more of a stabbing people pose. I am quite fond of the ship decal!

And I thought I would take a quick group shot as well since technically this is everything I need for a full army in our campaign. This was a last minuet idea so I didn't bother to take them off the box and set them up. At this point I have roughly half of the Victrix box of hoplites done, there is quite allot of guys in there! But I am kind of in a groove of painting these guys so I am tempted to keep going. I think this would make a good candidate for a game with the GW Lord of the Rings rules, and could be fun to get some mythlogical monsters as well. But I have other stuff to work on as well so we shall see.

  1. Great job on the painting Mike...the basing looks really awesome.

  2. Thanks! The basing is sand painted with the 3 colors from the Baccus basing kit, and then 2 kinds of flock a green like sawdust type one, and then some of the static grass kind. works pretty good.

  3. Wonderful job Mike, from the bases to the helmets, they look superb!
