Here are a few work in progress pictures of the base of Mycenaean Swordsmen that are gracing the painting table at present.
The finished army will contain several of these bases to help protect the flanks of the spearmen from more mobile types such as chariots and light foot.
The figures are from Redoubt Miniatures and hopefully will look the part once completed with mixed figure of eight and round shields.
Have opted for only six figures on the base to try and capture the feel and movement of lighter armed troops of varied armament and protection. The other planned base of swordsmen will have a higher number of unarmoured figures to reflect this as well.
Cheers for now
