Ancient Theban battle group

Ancient Theban battle group

Postby baz baziah » 26 Apr 2014

Another battle group for my ongoing Theban Fields of Glory army. Trying to use the same style that I used on all the others, the last of which I did about a year or so ago, was a challenge but after a few trial runs I got back into the swing of it.

I used a home made brown/black wash on the figures which thankfully had not dried out since its last use so that also ties in with the other figures. The only thing that has changed is the addition of some grass tufts which I never had a year or so ago. My next task will be to add tufts to the previous 100 or so bases...

I should have taken more "in progress" shots but forgot all about them until I was well into the job.

Hope you like them?

Thanks.

The figures are 15mm Xyston, they are from there original range of ancients so are close to true 15mm, the newer ranges are rapidly creeping up in size and now more closely fit the 18 - 20mm scales. The newer Thureophoroi stand about a head taller than these but are still "15mm" :cry:
