I have a number of these Eureka figures waiting for paint and organizing. The sculpts are adequate, in my view, but could stand some improvement for the faces. I'd like to see more Ral Partha's Tom Mier (sp?) influence, better detail and finer features. That said, I like the Hellenic look, altho' in my conception of Amazon armies, there's less need for phalangites except as protection (limited pike blocks ala ECW) for missile troops and shelter for cavalry. Fortunately, Eureka also has numbers of skirmisher figures that fill this need.

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
