Looking good Mike infantry looked the part as well.

Made a start on the Victrix mercenaries. Mould lines needed fair bit of work and they are a tad small for my liking but will see how they paint up.

Very nice indeed. Interesting quote on the blog about the men assigned to the cavalry not being highly motivated – is that maybe because duty in the hoplite line had higher prestige?

Very nicely presented, dare I say awesome pie…. wink

Great looking army!

Thanks guys. Garry I've started on a unit as well, they paint up really well. Paul I think you're right Hoplites definitely had higher prestige.

Their Cavalry wasn't very good and most Rules have them down graded.I only have 8 in my army. That's some very good brush work!

Thanks oldbob, yeah they were rubbish really but can guard the flanks…

That's exactly what I used them for also!

Nice work cyrus5. Yes the Spartans cav was not very good, but it was good for the flanks! Mike
