Thanks for the nice comments guys  :)

[email protected] nicely done those Zvezda miniatures are nice shame that most of their stuff is OOP and that they mix so many different types of cavalry in one box.

So a couple of photos of my next Hail Caesar "division" the western successor Phalanx. Once both armies are finished I think I will come back and beef up this division with more pike and enlarge the existing pike units with two more bases each but for now it is done. The other picture is my mythical western successor C-in-C who I've named Korragos (meaning “the leader of the army” in ancient Greek according to the net).

@Diablo Jon: I've got some Zvezda, Hat, and other ancients that I'll likely never get around to working on. If you think that you might be interested in some, I could compile a list. I wouldn't want very much for them, either.

Thanks for the offer mate but right now my Lead/plastic pile needs a bit of reduction before I get in anymore new toys.

Persian Levies for my Eastern Successor army this time HaT 1/72 plastics rather than my normal newline 20mm metals. Not the greatest miniatures but they will do a job.

That's some seriously good army painting. In my experience 20mm can be a real pain but you managed to make them look proper and sound. Hats off!
Years ago I had the pleasure to play with Frank Becker's 20mm armies (Macedonians against Indians, some photos here); great fun, and it was hard to refrain from buying another huge pile of figures. :D

The finished Eastern heavy cavalry division lead by my imigi-nation successor Karanos (the self styled new Alexander), who just like Alexander the Great likes to lead his heavy cavalry from the front, and his heavy Cavalry.
