Hoplites in 28mm

A baker's dozen hoplites pass across the painting desk.  The rank and file are Crusader Miniatures while the officer is (I believe) Aventine.  The officer's lineage is unknown since he was one of the figures included in a lead swap with Scott.  This stand of heavy infantry can join a similar stand of hoplites (see here) to form a large FP unit in Impetvs if desired.  The hoplites in the link above have been rebased to comply with Impetvs.  More heavy foot for the Carthaginians.

  1. They really do look nice! Looking at these I'm chomping at the bit to get back into my Pyrrhic army for Impetus, but I first need to finish my Dux B. Saxons. The things we wargamers go through.:-)

  3. Lovely painting and basing! You've nailed it, with them being shield to shield. It's the perfect look for them.

    In Impetus, a large unit is really tough to break.

    1. Thanks, Monty! These Crusader hoplites look like a tough bunch. When I command them, they better fight that way!

  5. I like the basing and how you have lost the figures bases into the groundwork.

    The painting is real nice too
