Posted the Spartans a couple of day ago, so here's the rest.

Got a bit bored painting and thought I'd try something different. Found these on Ali Express for about 60p each and thought I'd try making an army for Kings of War historical. I had to make the chariots and howdah's etc and mix and matched figures to get the different looks, plus a few paper decals but overall its a fun and colourful army for about £75.00 GBP a side.

Here's the Romans







And here's the spartans(Greeks) again




I've also got a medusa, centor, cyclops, athena and heracles, just need to make up rules for them.

I've ordered a few bits to try and make a Persian army next, but that's going to take a bit more creativity as you can't buy Persians.

It does matter how you play as long as you play.

I got some abs envy looking at those Spartans.

Very impressive.

Nice. Added bonus, you can remove arms/legs/heads as they take damage to a stand. And very easy to represent picking up dropped weapons (just swap them out).

Very cool. Are these legit Lego minis? I don't remember Romans and Spartans. So many possibilities with Lego!

HappyHiker19 Mar 2019 8:11 a.m. PST

no they are not actual lego. They are building blocks compatible with leading brands. Basically aliexpress sells either fake lego that is copies of lego sets that are a clear violation of lego's IP. ( such as Lepin).
Or, and this is the good part, totally original minifigures of their own design, such as greeks/romans and oddly game of thrones. I suspect theres a copyright issue with GoT but china doesnt care. But historical /mythological no ip issue. ( to be fair I think the figures are based on lego minfigures from suprise bags where they did a roman and a spartan but they are different enough to not count as a copy)

Cool. Minifigs look great. They look exactly like Lego, but I was wondering when theuy did war gaming minifigs!
