Macedonian Phalanx Galázios



Another Macedonian Successor type Phalanx marches off the painting table!


γαλάζιος "Galazios" is once again simply Greek for "Blue".


The shades used for the red tunics and the "bronze" equipment is different from that used for either of the two previous units painted. 


The sandals came out well, I think.


"Goop" was used to attach the shields to the shield arms. 



They are looking formidable enough!


I have the 4th such unit primed, and probably have enough lead on hand for another 4 units of phalangites.

  2. Very colorful! Painting 24 at one go is a big task. They look good all clumped up.

    1. Thanks, Jon. Doubtless they are more colorful than they likely were historically. It can be a challenge to get 4 modern 28 mm figures on a 20 x 60 mm base!

    1. Thank you, Matt. I think the next unit will have a straw yellow (and red)color scheme.

  6. Great massed look. Bet those pikes cause some hand injuries when being moved/lifted :-)

  7. Thanks, Gary! The tips aren't sharp like the Black tree designs ones; those can cause serious injury! These are just floral wire clipped off with wire cutting pliers.

  8. Nice work Peter. The sandals and the shields both came out particularly well, and they look like a formidable force.

    1. Thank you, Lawrence. WE will see. I have in mind to expand my Indian Army next after these...

    1. Thanks, Iain. I know some guys hammer the ends to flatten them, but it seems unnecessary to me.

  10. Great looking unit Peter. I keep feeling the pull of ancients but desperately trying not to get drawn in just yet to prevent project overload!
