Cretan Archers

These archers came out of Zvezda's Greek infantry box. I added a Newline pelta shield to the standing figures. I have decieded to focus first on finishing a Carthaginian army to use for impetus then a Republican Roman army to oppose them. This is to encourage me to actually use my collection for wargaming. This however is still going to take ages because of work and finding time to get figures done has been difficult. Hopefully soon there will be some more units to take some pictures of and post on here.

Greek Slingers

Just a stones throw away from the enemy are these Greek slingers from Newline Designs 20mm. They went smoother than the other slingers. This time I only applied wash to the flesh areas and used a base coat and highlights to the tunics which I will probably stick with on figures that have areas that do not work well with the washes. Next up will be some mercenary archers.
