So in honour of these brave boys I have painted up another Field of Glory/Hail Caesar Hoplite unit. Back in my youth I liked to add the odd shield design that raised the odd eyebrow such as a smiley face or cafe advert! To keep this tradition going I added a little American Football reference, rather ironic as I painted this my team was lacking it!
The second rank advanced to the front. I have to admit that I have done much better shields but my eye was not really in the zone but they will manage OK. This is only the second unit of Hoplites I have painted in the last two decades.
Last pic shows the back of the figures. These are literally the old Chariot Miniature castings. I have enough for another three units and hope to get them done before the end of the challenge even though I really don't need any more units but they may come in handy if I get to play a REALLY big game.
