I have just managed to finish these guys before we pack up and leave Townsville for Singleton next week. The figures are from Gripping Beasts' fantastic Successor Range. The figures themselves are Hellenistic Thorakites a form of armoured light infantry who were used to help support the flanks of the phalanx, in the later Hellenistic period. They are beautifully sculptured, easy to paint and I think the nicest Thorakites of any range I have seen thus far. The only issues I had was when scraping out the hands, of one of the figures, the hand broke off. But that was just me being a little ruff. I have painted the figures to represent figure 10a (Salmas) from plate 10 of the Montvert Publications 'The Ptolemaic army' Vol 2. and they are based for Warhammer Ancients either as skirmishers (two to a base) or as a formed light infantry regiment. But this might have to be my last post for the year, unless Leroy sends a few images through. So Merry Christmas to all the guys out there who have checked out and commented on my Blog and Happy New Year. Be well, enjoy life and play it safe.
All the best
