A timely Epiphany.

A curious title I'm sure you'll agree but let me elucidate:

Above is the latest work in progress, a boxed set of Immortal Miniatures plastic hoplites which contrary to my expectations I am very much enjoying assembling & painting, probably because they are in actual fact fabulous figures with good sharp detail.
Add to this fact that I have just glanced at the Warlord Games website where they have previewed their Macedonian Phalangite greens and you may begin to see why this road to Damascus moment is so timely.
Its all subject to price really ( and available leisure time) but I can begin to see endless vistas of Hellenistic pike stretching to the bottom of the garden at the very least. If I stretch the imagination further  I can see lots of Igor Dzis inspired dioramas decorating the available spaces in the study too.

  1. Marvelous looking bunch. The bronze looks very nicely done & the painted helmet is very realistic. Regards, Dean
