As promised, here are my first four peltasts.  Since they represent the poorest troops in the warband, their kit and tunics are quite basic.



My color scheme for this army will be red, black, and white.  Since they are members of a great king's standing army, there will be a degree of uniformity that one might not expect from other Greek armies from this period.  With that said, I don't want the unit to look too uniform, so their tunics will vary in color an pattern.  It will be the red shields of identical design that provide the uniformity.

In their current state, the shields are quite boring. My plan is to add some battle damage and weathering to gritty them up some. I may hand paint some symbols on the shields, but I haven't a clue what to add. The most obvious choice would be Pyrrhus' monogram 'ΠYΡ'.  The shields are small and the big central boss takes up a lot of space, so there isn't much surface to work with.  Hmm?

How do you paint the helmets?  I have some Sumerians that need painting.

Koyote, that's quite a damning report on Footsore. At £4 per figure in UK they are at the "re-assuringly expensive" end of the market and I would expect much, much,  better. They even make Foundry look cheap!

Regards

I'm kind of wondering if it's more of a plan to run tooling into the ground before replacing it, or are planning on dropping the line after it fails.

1) White primer
2) Privateer Press Molten Bronze basecoat
3) Agrax Earthshade wash
4) Reikland Flesh wash focused on the recesses
5) One or two coats of PP Molten Bronze mixed thin with water, highlighting those areas marked in orange below. The mixture should be thin enough to brush on easy and smooth with little effort, but not so thin that it acts like a wash or ink.

Stunning painting on the Peltasts and that’s a very helpful painting guide.

Great stuff.  I've been enjoying the conversions you've been doing and looking forward to seeing them painted up too.    The initial peltasts are very slick.

There's some brilliant work here! I had an 'AHA' moment seeing the cuirass and helmet set up as a trophy in the previous page.

Great work.  I love watching your warbands take shape.

Bad news.  The Adeption 2022 tournaments will not be featuring an Age of Hannibal tournament, so I am going to put my Epirotes on the back burner while I work on revamping my Irish and finishing my Mutatawwi'a and Arab themed Age of Magic warbands.

Before changing gears, I (mostly) finished up the last of my peltasts.  I haven't sorted out their shields yet, so the shield faces are still quite plain.

Koyote, where did you get the info about Saga tournaments at Adepticon 2022?  I don't see anything on their website.
