Nouveau Thracians Completed.

A unit completed in a week is un- heard of for me, but here is a nice even dozen of the black clad fellows:

These chaps are going toward the projected Sellasia re-fight at an as yet undefined moment in the future, soon to be joined by more thureophoroi and a unit of Antigonid shielded cavalry.
I'm still not 100% sold on the standard design, it puts me in mind of The Comedian from The Watchmen graphic novel somehow; but frankly I'm struggling to come up with anything more appropriately Thracian looking. Rather inconsiderately they forgot to leave any concrete evidence lying around, if indeed they ever bothered with such things.


  1. Nice work on the rest of the crew; maybe you could repaint the banner with the usual face w/eyes commonly seen on the pelta shields? Best, Dean

  2. Nice looking unit and your right on the standard, but it still looks effective.
