Early Parthian Auxiliaries

 More from Victrix, this time from the Scythian/Parthian horse archer set. Think I’ll add a couple more basis and include a command stand

More Macedonian Obsessions

 So here we have the next batch of Victrix figures to feed my obsession!

They have been painted as fairly generic later hoplites, useful as either allies or enemies of the various Macedonian dynasties and Successors.

I’ve again tried to simulate a densely packed mass of close order troops, huddling together to get the mutual support of their neighbours shields. I think I would prefer the look of the shields overlapping the other way, but the pose of the figures doesn’t allow it

Macedonian Obsessions

 It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted on here, but I thought I’d post a few pics of some Victrix Macedonians I’ve been working on over the last few years.

This was the first unit I completed, but not the first one I started (see next one below)

This was the first unit I started but fell out with. I started again with the one above and then came back and substantially repainted this one until I was happier with it

Unit three was a bit more straightforward 

As was unit four. One thing to note her is the use of LBMS transfers over metallic paint; gives a really good effect

Unit five is a bit OTT, with inspiration taken from the Agios Athenasios to be painting, including the various tunic patterns, purple cuirasses and helmets

We finally have command group to finish off the progress to date
