In a belated Christmas gift exchange with Scott, I received one pack of three Trojan War chariots from Old Glory. Now, a good friend once told me that the proper action was to get gift miniatures onto the painting table in a reasonable amount of time. I am probably paraphrasing a bit. I recall he actually suggested gift figures should be painted first. Since our gift exchange did not occur until mid-March, getting this trio painted in under three months is well within the statute of limitations. Don't you agree? Besides, I have a DEEP painting queue!
While I have no planned Trojan War project, this pack of chariots looked like a fun diversion. Scott has a Trojan War project simmering having recently ordered a number of BTD Trojans. The BTD Trojans I saw in the bare metal were very nice and resulted in a crisper sculpt than were the Old Glory figures. The Old Glory figures do possess much character, though. Just look at the faces on some of these guys. Would I paint more Trojans? Certainly! I do have a Biblical project to start consisting of a small box full of Wargames Foundry Canaanites. Some day, I would enjoy digging into that.
Not knowing what rules Scott had in mind, I based each on a 1/2 sized Impetvs base, each of 60mm x 80mm. Two chariots abreast will produce one regular Impetvs base.
