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:
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!
