These Crusader Miniatures hoplites have been sitting in a box for ten years! When Jon, Kevin, and I played a game of Commands and Colors with my 28mm ancients miniatures, I thought it would be nice to add a Greek army to the table. Each unit consists of four bases. With the 28 figures I already had painted, this will enable me to field nine hoplite units.
The figures are all mounted on 60mm by 30mm bases. The spears are from North Star. I cut them longer than you usually see on wargaming miniatures, but the real spears were 9 to 12 feet long, so this is accurate. Shield transfers are all from Little Big Men Studios, and are brilliant, as usual.
I also painted up three bases of generals using figures from the spares box. These are all from Wargames Foundry.
I'm starting in on a new round of commission work now, so it may be a while until I add to this army. Hopefully it won't be another ten years!
