One of the first ancient armies I put together as a young lad over 20 years ago was a 15mm Later Hoplite Greek DBA force. Why post them now, well in March Mick is putting on a Greek vs Persian game in 15mm. Dave and Neal are putting together the Greeks while Mick will be supplying the Persians. It was at this point that I had these gentlemen sitting at the bottom of a box, spears bent or broken, bases unfinished (you get the idea). I decided that I could offer them as additional support which was gratefully accepted by Neal and Dave. It did take a bit of work to replace all the lead spears with steel ones and re-base the units. I couldn't bring myself to repaint them, just a bit of touching up to cover the chips. Now compared to my painting of today these are way of pace, however it is nice to look back and see how my painting has evolved.
Psiloi to the front
The figures I believe are all Essex, still not bad even by today's standards. Ive still got a couple of bases of Psiloi and a base of Cavalry to put together to finish my small force.
