Four stands of Italian hoplites of 24 figures each are ready for combat. The hoplites are based in three ranks of eight files. Under CCA, the hoplites will be treated as medium infantry. Rather than having these four stands form one CCA element as in the block game, I use one stand per CCA element and track hits. Thus, each stand can absorb four hits before elimination.
When I first pulled these 24 stands from the bag, I thought 96 figures all at once may be too big of a bite to chew. I was pleasantly surprised that this mob of figures was completed in only a couple of painting sessions. Seeing how relatively painless the hoplites were to complete, 96 Triarii are in the painting queue awaiting the chance to follow their brethren.
