Dance of Bronze 4

The finished pictures of a mercenary peltast bases that was recently added to the Analogue Painting Challenge. The figures are from Foundry's World of Greeks range and will be used with the Spartans, the planned Macedonians - both Alexandrian and Successor so will be well used.

 


Great sculpts with good detail and they are enjoyable to paint as well. The red was chosen so they will be easily seen on the table and also as they are a mercenary unit. Fairly sure that red was a colour associated with mercenaries during the Hellenistic period and early, although can't say where this was read.


Another unit of these is planned for later this year if the painting goes to schedule, along with more from this period.


Lastly, a warm welcome to:

Hope that you find something of interest and use in these pages.

Cheers for now
