Crusader Greek Hoplites

Matt, one of my students, is building a Greek army for Warhammer Ancient Battles. These are his figures. He used Little Big Men transfers for the shields, Litko bases, and North Star spears. Click on the pictures for larger images.

Command. You can really see Matt's technique for shading the tunics.

Rankers. It's tough to shade the faces inside those helmets.

Matt has been painting miniatures for just over a year. He's 14 years old. If he keep progressing at this rate, he'll embarrass me within the next year or so.


  1. He'll embarass many of us!!

    Outstanding job - keep up the great work!


  2. Scott,
    Crusader miniatures do paint up well. I think they are one of the best ranges on the market and will be hard to beat. Well done to you friend for painting in a fine style.
