I have had an army of these guys from Eureka for several years. I confess they were fun to paint.
I usually use them as Persians or Indians to go against my Macedonians.

The one thing I don't like is that even though they have several poses of pike, they don't mix up well, so each rank looks exactly the same.

Also with the pike, the pike itself is cast separate from the figure, and includes the hands – which makes it a real pain to replace the pike with a wire one – so much so I never bothered with it.

Some of them can be seen here (along with some old Ral Partha figs)

Continuing with the Eureka Amazon Project… previously, we showed you the Axewomen. This week, it's the turn of the hoplites.

This pack has two poses: crouching, and knee-down.

The figures were donated by Eureka Miniatures.

The hoplites were painted by Fernando Enterprises to match the prototypes painted by professional artist Beowulf Fezian. In the case of the hoplites, I don't think that a specific prototype figure was painted; there were already prototypes which showed the general idea with other troop types.

When the painted figures arrived from Sri Lanka, I did the basing and flocking.

In my experience, they rank up best with the couching figures in the front row, and the kneeling figures in the back row. Or maybe I've used the 'wrong' slottabases…

Or maybe I need to do a better job of straightening the weapons. grin

The shields will be completed at a later time.
