Several moons ago, before Aventine had any pike figures available, I hankered after something to fill the gap and settled on Foundry.
I painted up two lots of 64 figures bunt never quite finished them off. Along came the Aventine range and the Foundry stuff got put on the back burner...until now!
Friend Simon Miller has once again persuaded me to join in with one of his insane projects, this time a refight of Raphia at Partizan in June next year. Figure scale is roughly 1:100, so that's a lot of figures to paint. I've drawn the Seleucid side of the fight and need to get some numbers together quickly.
One of the key units on the Seleucid side is the Silver Shields (Argyraspides). At our figure scale, I need 100 figures to represent their strength of 10,000 (actually 96 in reality). As I'd originally painted 64 man units, I needed a further 32 figures to make up the necessary 96, so here they are, sans shields, of which more later. Ran out of pike, so still need to add these to the armoured half of the batch.
