28mm Greek Mercenary Hoplites

Here's a box of 28mm plastic Greek hoplites from Victrix to expand a customer's Greek army. This is the Mercenary armored hoplite box of 48 plastic figures. Shield decals were from Little Big Men Studios.

Close-up of a few figures. The customer requested no eyes so we left them with shading.

The kit comes with enough parts to make 48 figures. It is a multi-part kit, where each figure needs to be assembled. The torso, both arms, head, short sword, spear, and shield all need to be glued together. One note about the kit is to check the arms as you are assembling. There are bare arms and arms with a sleeve. Make sure to match them up, but also note the kit is short on some arms pairs; I actually raided another kit for sleeved arms to make these match up more.

Overall a pretty nice kit with decent figures. I'm still partial to metals (with Foundry's Greeks still being my favorite) but this is the best detailed plastic kit of Greeks I've had to do so far. The detail is nice and sharp for a plastic kit, making painting easier. There' is still a fair bit of time involved due to assembly.

More 28mm AWI: Colonial and British Reinforcements

Here are some more units of 28mm AWI we did for a customer. The flags are from The Flag Dude and the figures are from various manufacturers such as: Perry, Fifie and Drum, etc.

2nd Pennsylvania

3rd New York

A couple of miscellaneous colonials to fill in his other units

British Guards

British 27th Line

British 18th Line

The British all together

The colonials all together
 I straightened out all of the bayonets/ rifles when I packed them up for shipping. I prefer to do it this way, messing around with bending them as little as possible.

Warhammer Fantasy Night Goblins!

Another batch of night goblins for a customer's Orc army. There's also some extra netters for adding to the other units we did previously.

Not much else to say here. They are a fun paint, though as multi-part plastic kits they eat up a fair amount of time during assembly. This should just about finish up the goblin units. Now we move on to the orcs and the special figures and units.

Warhammer Fantasy Chaos Sorcerer: Bloab Rotspawned

A fun, if odd, piece we did just for the fun of it. He's not a big as we thought when we saw the box, and that was a little disappointing. However, he is packed with detail as you can see in the pics:

The kit allows you do build three different versions so it has lots of versatility.
