Seleucus Nicator in 28mm by Relic Miniatures
« on: June 11, 2021, 03:07:15 AM »
I finally finished this solid commander figure by Relic Miniatures. The model can be made into Antiochus III or Seleucus I with a head swap. The likeness of Seleucus is striking! The horse armor is very well done IMO.

I switched from spear to sword by using an extra Victrix cavalry hand. The Relic model is flanked by my "old familiars" Foundry Macedonian officers.

Here is where to get these:

Nice figure.

The image of him on the right, is he sat on a surf board?

Looks great, Jeff. Are the Seleukos and Antiochos figures the same? On the site they're listed as being two different figures, but it would make sense if they just sold you the one figure with two separate heads. Pretty sure I've gotten figures like that from them before.

Yes. Charlie don’t surf but Seleucids do.

Yes. The heads are separate. I prefer the earlier Antiochus figure by Relic but the model is “Victrix” scale.

He reminded me straight away of Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

I would cast Ian McShane as Seleucus at any age!

In the Med? Sounds like skiing in Thailand!

Nice looking miniature and great painting. I'm not sure if its a trick of the photo but his horse looks huge next to the Foundry guys horse.

The Relic horses are indeed large- mostly because they have proper length legs.
Also I think the intent was to make sure the Seleucids were riding their exclusive Nisean breed “heavenly” horses. Most models are too big for ancient horses, which on average would have been small. The Victrix horse behemoths outsize this one since they appear to be Percherons.
