This is a question for anyone for who owns Old Glory Trojan
War Greek Heroes in Chariots 1 and/or Trojan Heroes in Chariots 1. I recently purchased both and i'd like to know exactly which heroes the figures are supposed to represent. I think the Greeks might be Achilles, Odysseus, and Ajax. I would guess the Trojans are Hector, Ajax, and someone else. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks

Redoubt did a beautiful Trojan War Line, with named heroes.
They were based on the book of the Trojan Wars by Peter Connolly.
He rather arbitrarily showed the heroes in plausible armor.
So, Redoubt (and Foundry) named their figures arbitrarily based on his arbitrary depiction.

The Old Glory figures can be whoever you want them to be.

Right, I have the Connolly book. I'm thinking that if Redoubt and Foundry followed Connolly, then perhaps Old Glory did as well. There's a good chance I might buy the Foundry or Redoubt (if they get back up to speed) foot equivalents of those characters, so i'm interested as to who they might be. I'd rather have them not look completely different if possible.

Why not just contact Old Glory and ask them?

Russ often posts on here, as well. Perhaps he will chime in on this thread.

I did indeed contact them. T and C didn't have the answers.
