|One of many boxes of figures.|
I obtained from Glenn a vast number of painted 1/72 scale figures - the vast bulk of them from various HaT sets. They were all based on sections of polystyrene. I have wondered if this was to either to protect the figures during gaming, or to make it easier for a child to use?
|Figures were removed from the bases and sorted into groups. These are Hat Greek Mercenaries.|
|A mix of Persian Bow from Hat and Italeri.|
I decided to base the figures using the same size stands I use for Volley and Bayonet. This is because I like the way numbers of 20mm figures look on stands of those size.
|HaT Thracians, touched up and washed.|
|Refurbished Zvezda Greeks.|
|I've put two ranks of figures on a stand. A Greek phalanx was commonly eight ranks deep.|
|HaT Macedonian Phalangites..|
I put this on the bigger base in order to get a better visual effect, and because they were generally sixteen ranks deep.
So far I have been viewing the basing of the figures as being experimental, while I figure out how to get the best visual effect from these figures. The idea is that I will also be able to use these as a teaching aid when teaching Classics. I am still toying with the idea of creating up some formations on a one to one scale.
