On the Painting Tray: October 2012

80 Garrison Hoplites.  I originally bought a load of these for next to nothing at Wappinshaw years ago, and gave them a basic paint job.  The intention was to make them different enough from my other Hoplites to be used as militia grade, but then I realised that there were enough for 5 units of 36 figures each.  So I then bought the same number again, this time directly from Garrison, and I've been painting those in fits and starts in between other things.  If I can finish this lot of 80, I'll have another 5 units of 36.  And that will give me enough to do the opposition for my other Greeks, if I ever need them for a clash between city states.


  1. You can never have too many Hoplites!

  2. get some pics up paul looking forward to seeing them!

  3. How many hoplites will that make in total?

  4. Hi David, thanks for dropping by. I think it'll be over 600 by the time I finish this lot!

    Incidentally, it looks as though we will be able to put on a Chalons game at Carronade in May. The figures will be rather venerable, to put it politely, but it should be good for a laugh.
