I received a package last week from Tim in Saskatoon which contained the pieces for several 1/72 DBA armies as part of a trade so I thought I'd dive in. First up are the the lighter foot elements of a Macedonian army.
This is a 4Sp unit based on some HaT figures. Two sprues arrived primed white (ack!) and partly painted so I finished the job and decided to do the rest of the army with a white primer (I usually prime black).
I think the figures turned out alright but I might well have used different tunic colours. Anyhow, done is done and I think the wash helped add some depth to the figures.
I also put together four bases of 4Ax. These allow the army to morph between Alexandrian Macedonians, Imperial Macedonians and the various Successor lists. Why make a one trick pony is my approach with 1/72 as they are so cheap.
Again I was pretty happy with the wash although I'm not sold on the white primer. And I did two bases of 2Ps.
Up next: I'm currently locked in mortal combat with a box of Zvezda Macedonian pike (what the hell was the sculptor thinking!?!) and have troops for three bases painted and washed. I also have a Greek catapult built, painted and washed. Next up are the cavalry and three more bases of pike. And then maybe an elephant and I think that completes the army!
I will be putting this project momentarily on hold to base two sci-fi armies for HoTT that I picked up at the Red Claw swap meet. But that should only take a day or two then back to the Macedonians!
