Painted Greeks

These are a few of the Greeks I've painted which you've probably seen on our website. The background and scenery is mostly from aquarium supplies.

Great looking minies. I too have been using " aquarium supplies" for a long time. Just about wherever I go shopping I "look around" just in case.

Can't go wrong with aquarium plants for jungle terrain.

Cake shops are handy for doric columns, too.

You could really use some Greek cavalry there. To bad nobody makes any Greek cavalry, you know, in plastic. Maybe a plastic manufacturer of military miniatures could make some Greek cavalry. Nice looking hoplites though, just ordered my 4th box of them.

Thanks for the complement

Greek Cavalry? Only the Thesselonians (sp) made any significant use of horsemen if memory serves me and even they were a mostly infantry force. Admittedly it would be nice to have. Perhaps if we did Numidian horse sometime in the future we could add some Greek heads/weapons and call it quits.

Huh... maybe you got that Director of a lot of things in your sig for a reason. A box of Numidian cavalry with Greek heads is brilliant. For classical greece I would agree that cavalry arms were slight but by about the time of the Peloponnesion War there looks like a large increase in there use, especially in Sicily and southern Italy. Couple that with the fact your Numidians are in desperate need of their famed horseman you guys could put out a box of cavalry with the same amount of utility for gamers as the footmen do. Please do consider this.
