Return to Phrygia

Cold Wars is over and done, time for other matters., like closing up the kennel businees and moving, sighhh but there should still be a little hobby time over the next few months and lots of time come fall. So I sat down last night and did a few sample Phrygians. Basing and that nice glossy varnish that  add the finishing touch and bring them to life is missing but here they are amidst friends:

L to R  Mede (slight conversion of Garrison Persian), Garrison 25mm Phyrgian Spearman, Garrison 20mm Phrygian Javelinman, Prince August Homecast 25mm Sassinid Levy.

The Mede is there, well, because he happened to be there when I was taking the picture. I'm pretty happy with the spearman but may relent and do some coloured leather on the breastplate, not sure yet. The 20mm Phrygian, as I expected, looks much better than he has a right to now that he is painted. I'm 90% sure that I'll field this unit as double armed light infantry with 2 handed axe and javelin and discount the armour (ie if the metal breast plate is light, then the leather only is less than light and therefore ignored, its a cruel world). The PA homecast fellow goes well along side the 20mm Garrison and will be used to fill out a unit of some form of Mede levy, because, well because I have the mold, 2 now thanks to the generosity of a fellow gamer and home-caster. Hopefully the squashed head was the result of an imperfect pour and can be bettered with some work. He was hastily done almost 2 years ago.

Right, on to the next 46 figs!

  1. The 20mm Garrisons are a nice match to the PA...I'll have to go have a look and see if anything looks useful in a Roman context, since I'm thinking about using those molds.
