Cretans WIP

There is going to be a 1 metre wide screen of Cretans, Neocretans and elephants, screening the front of the wings of the Ptolemaic army.  The below were beautifully painted by mate Nick Speller, and will be based shortly...


It's not very clear in the above photo, but they are painted in 3 different shades of red, and are a mix of Foundry and Gorgon archer miniatures.

Thanks chaps! There should be enough to "darken the sky".

Cheers, Simon

And being elite bowmen is an appreciated bonus.

Hi Sebastien- they all have dinky little shields, too, so can melee (up to a point).

Cheers, Simon

Very nice, might have to check out Gorgon's figures based on this.

Hi HGA, they complement the Foundry's nicely, as by the same sculptor, but on a different dolly.

Cheers, Simon
