my Ancient Greek Army - All Complete page 3 (20/02)
« on: November 28, 2023, 04:48:08 PM »
Afternoon All - finally got round to posting and photographing the start of my latest Shed project - Ancient Greeks. Best to get the bulk of the army out of the way first so here goes 1000 28mm Hoplites all painted and varnished. Just need to be based...







More photos and details of the project on the blog - https://shedwars.blogspot.com/2023/11/my-big-fat-greek-army.html

Cheers

Wonderfully bonkers! Set them up in an 8-deep line and look at them from tabletop level and it would give some idea what the Persians saw at places like Marathon and Plataea.

That would be impressive enough even at 6mm scale!

I'd love to know how much time it took you to paint

150 were done last year - the remaining 850- were cranked out at about 100/week
