Classical Greek Hoplites - 1st Corps


These wonderfully painted 1st Corps Hoplites came out onto the market over ten years ago and a bit more I think and they still stand up well to the test of time. Painted by our local painter Leroy Simpson (about ten years ago) and only recently rebased for Impetvs they still look fantastic. Leroy even hand painted the shields....champion. So on show today are three units of Hoplites ready for battle. 

Please enjoy

The Hoplites look great but, my oh my, the shield work is stunning!

Just love those 1st Corps Hoplites. I think they are the best on the market for that Persian Wars period.

Wonderful job on these hoplites, great painting and basing!

Those 1st Corp look great. It is strange that whenever I think of 28mm companies, 1st Corp never occur to me somehow. Will have to remind myself.

Thank you everyone for the fantastic comments I will be sure to pass them on to Leroy. I think many of our early Ancient Armies were made up of 1st Corps figures especially since they were one reproduced here in Australia under licence. But now that is not the case. I know that in our club we had Ancient Germans and Celt, Imperial and Republican Romans, Slave Revolt and Greek Armies. They were then and are still now a very nice figure.

All the best

Great stuff - as usual. Your blog is an inspiration. I've been lurking for a while and find the sheer quality and breadth of your collection a great thing to behold. DEW

Still look wonderful Nathan. The figures still stand up well by modern standards that's for sure.

Sorry to hijack the thread but I couldn't find another way to make contact.

Is a copy of the Breachloader & Rifle rules you use for your colonial gaming available anywhere as a download?

Many thanks!
