I have been gaming since school, moving from historical figures gaming through role playing and back again. I decided to Blog after being persuaded by some friends that it's time I joined the digital age properly. The plan is to showcase various goings-on in my gaming life and keep it updated as much as I possibly can, barring work and real life.
Finished my unit of Immortals for Plataea. These are the unarmoured rear rankers:
The stripes look slightly off centre down their backs, but that's because the cloth billows out, and I made sure the line followed that correctly. The only criticism I have of these figures is that they lean forwards a bit, which is a very minor point. I did try to correct this, but I was wary of pushing too hard in case I damaged them. Two shots of the full unit:
At one point I will buy archers and make this into two units. One will be the armoured spearmen with rear ranking bowmen, and the other will be composed of the unarmoured spearmen plus archers. That will effectively give me some Immortals and some sparabara types. But they'll do just now for Plataea. Figures are by Foundry.
