The Ancient Greeks

After a long while plaing with bronze age, we had a game with Greeks defending their homeland:

The zvezda figures are great

But see those old Atlantic with the transfers on their shields!

The mail armour hoplites

Transfers are 15mm ideal for these shields

The deployment

The attack!

Attacking the persians.

Nubian uprising

The Queen of the Lower Nile has decided it's time for more autonomy.

Nubian bowmen

Negro bowmen (see some 25mm minifigs at same size than 1/72 Hat)

Hat Nubians

Wawat bowmen

Wawat infantry

But egyptians will not allow the nubians go very far

The nubian advance in a rush mob

There was an epic defence of the fort rejecting the egyptian forces once and again!

The tribe skirmishers poured arrows and arrows on the egyptian forces

Not spanish republican, just happened to be the flags on our wargame Club Dragon

The egyptian chariots manouvre

The nubians and  lybian mercanaries

Queen's pet

Riding to the battle she's wounded


The Caesar nubians push away the egyptian invaders...
A new time is arising in Egypt

Mycenaean heavy infantry

Mars new set is a bit dissapointing
Odd unnatural positions, figures full of flash, spears are like a thick stick, helemet horns missing...

But once you have spent a good while cleaning converting and preparing the figures the result is not too bad

And with some paint they can be used as achean characters

Figures are a bit chunky and fat but i like them...

Trojan bowmen

A look to the Atlantic troyan bowmen without armour or greaves which have been eliminated and painted as cloth or flesh

Two characters from the Troyan war: Polemusa,one of the amazons that arrived Troy to defend the city with their Queen Penthesilea.

Eneas, one of the survivors of the city and leader of the group who arrived to Italy.

Polemusa is a Caesar figure from the RPCharacters set (magician?) with borrwed legs from a zulu warrior.
Eneas is a gladiator witha head swap from zvezda Alexander.
Behind an officer from the iberians shelf.

Some more bronze age warriors from the south west of Spain.

The Stellas depict chariots and warrior with long horned helmets.
There are no trace of armour, so leather bands are reasonable for heavy infantry

swords and spears are clearly depicted, but axes were rather common as well.

Note the shield design almost identical in many Stellas:

Figures are conversions from Atlantic "Troyan" and Italeri romans.
