You wait six months for a Ptolemy, and then two come along at the same time...


A hurried WIP shot of the remaining command stands for Sunday; flocking today!  

I seem to have 2 Ptolemys.  I can't decide whether to go with the effete youth (front left) or the dashing cavalry commander (rear right).  Strangely, Alexander the Great has also joined his less illustrious heirs.

The effeminate one please; I'm looking forward to Sunday no matter which side I'm on!

Well, since you've got two, try one and if he doesn't win, use the other next time.
Great looking miniatures.

The effete youth would be the historical choice, but you could do with his scarier sister to put some backbone in the men.
Nice figures BTW.

Regards HGA.

I'm agreeing with the Chorus, both on cool stuff, and for the Effette version. With Alexander there, well... 'nuff said...
Cheers

I am looking forward to the account of the battle - it promises to be a truly epic struggle!

I am truly amazed at your output. My hat is off to you sir.

Superb Simon, more the merrier...if Ptolemy doesn't do the business maybe his twin brother can. I've got two Ramesses for my Egyptians that I swop over when one is out of favour with the dice gods.

Thnaks all!

Alas the Ptolemy's had a bad day; the heroic Ptolemy was killed in action, and the callow youth had to flee for the Delta...

Hi Simon, I hope you see this posting. I was idly browsing some of the Partizan reports, and came across one by a scenery manufacturer:

They make graveyard things that might fit a project you mentioned a while ago for Romans or some such; hope it's useful...
