Macedonian Phalanx Prásinos



More than 4 years ago, I acquired a large set of unpainted 28 mm Macedonian Successor figures from a local gamer who had had them sitting around for years without getting around to doing anything with them. 


I glued 96 figures to my usual tongue depressor painting sticks, primed them, and painted the first phalanx of 24 figures almost a year later.


Thereafter, I made about as much additional progress as the original owner had, namely... nil!


So, after several years where painting some of these fellows was in my plans, this month I finally did something about it!


This red and green themed unit was finished, appropriately, on Christmas Day. These are A&A figures... I think. 


I cleverly named it the  πράσινο ( Prásinos) Phalanx, which is nothing more or less than Greek for "Green" - in the color sense, not lack of experience!

  3. These are two dozen good looking figures. Are the remaining 48 in work too?

    1. 24 more are; I will probably do the remaining 24 in Q1 of 2020. I have enough figures for quite a few more, although less heavily armored!

  4. Great work Peter, and the shield designs are very effective. Those tongue depressors work well.

    1. Tanks, Lawrence! This time the shields are a combination of cast-on and freehand.

  5. They turned out quite well. 4 years is not that long a wait...

  7. Rapidly turned around pikemen (rapid compared to me!) Good looking phalangists!
