An occasional journal chronicling my ongoing forays into the world of roleplaying games, boardgames & tabletop wargames and my continuing lack of success in either of the last two; this is where the lament bit comes in.

Lamian War Peltasts.
Following on from the recently completed Hoplite phalanx I've started to tackle some of the lighter troops for the Greek army. I've been struggling a bit to find suitable figures to augment the Foundry peltasts I already own, up to now I've been able to find most of the Hellenistic troop types from Polemarch, Crusader Miniatures & the ubiquitous Foundry but suitable peltasts seem a little scarce. So a quick trawl through the spares box & various other dusty caches of miniatures turned up this lot:
Foundry World of the Greeks un-armoured Hoplites.
And some of these:
There are also a dozen or so Crusader Thureophoroi lurking around somewhere. The upshot of this trawl round and a little work adding some spare peltas & voila some fairly tidy peltasts, albeit with fancier than normal headgear.
