I have some time now to catch up with putting up photos of recently painted figures. These are the excellent 28mm Victrix Theban Hoplites from 5th - 3rd Century BC.
The paints used were mostly from the Foundry range as I am getting good results from their triad system of colours
Oddly, I hadn't really planned to get into painting Thebans. My original intention was to paint Athenians and Spartans, but once I saw the box of these troops at a wargaming show, I knew I just had to get some. The Boeotian helmet really adds a lot of character to the Thebans.
Of course now I have them painted up, inspiration has struck and I want to build up an army of these. From what I have read so far, they changed sides from being an ally of Sparta to being the enemy who finally destroyed them.
The figures were a great pleasure to paint and I am really looking forward to getting the time to paint up some more units to support them. As usual though, I have too many projects! No doubt when the spring turns into summer and the heat starts cracking the roads again (or close enough to it for the UK!), I shall turn my attention again to Ancient Greece.
PS. Apologies to those whose blogs I normally follow and comment on - I have been away for over two weeks and have to catch up with lots of reading!
