When Samuli was selling these at our HAil Caesar FB group, it became immediately apparent to me that I have missed one period of warfare completely in my toy soldier collection.
I handily forgot, that I had indeed bypassed that period on purpose..
So, I again sacrificed money at the altar of tin and plastic, and acquired over 200 ancient Greeks. Luckily about 40 of them were already painted and based, so I´ll save some time.
Most of the figures were plastic, but there were also metal sling throwers and some cavalry.
My plan is to basecoat them skeleton bone, airbrush few different tunic combinations, try to airbrush skin to arms and feet, and think about helmets later. I´m kind of leaning towards of masking the face and airbrushing them as well.
Shields I left unglued to help painting them, they are still attached in the sprue for easy handling.
I´m now spending more time than ever to just plan of how to paint these as fast as possible so I´m not left with yet another unpainted pile of plastic.
