Fresh troops!

Photo update of my blog, for those interested.
I have not painted much at all this year. And since the year is almost over, I post now what I have.

First a 48 fig unit of Seleucid/Successor phalanx. All Foundry figs. They are from a lot I bought very cheap second hand. These were actually painted some months ago. I really should update my blog more often...

Next is my first unit of Macedonian Companions. A 12 fig unit, also Foundry and bought together with the phalanx figures at an equally low price. I added a musician (small conversion) and, the horror, a standard bearer!
He will come in handy for early successor companions. The design on the standard is made of the inner part of a LBM shield transfer.

The last figure painted is the big man himself: Alexander the Great.
I bought this miniature a few years ago from Newline Miniatures, but they sold this line seveeral years ago. It is now owned by SHQ, I believe.
I hope you like the newly painted miniatures, and will try to update on a more regular base.

Oh, did I mentioned that I made a trip through Greece last summer? Most part crossing the Peloponnesos. It was a great vacation, but two weeks is far to short to visit all that I wanted. Maybe more on this next time.

Tomorrow I'm going to a wargamers feast: Crisis at Antwerp, probably the largest wargame show in European mainland. And it is only 25kms away from my doorstep. Lucky me I guess!

A few left over figures for sale, mostly Foundry.

Is it actualy that long ago that I updated my blog? Wow!

Anyway, as my Macedonian/Hellenistic armies are now almost ready, I would like to sell the unwanted leftover figures. All are unpainted.

-11 Macedonian/Successor phalanx, code WG 143 (Pike up) These are with cast-on shields.
-6 Macedonian/Successor Royal Guard, code WG144 (pike up) Also with cast-on shields.
-6 hypaspists attacking, probably code WG 09. Unfortunately, I can not find the shields, but if you like replacements, I have some Crusader hoplite shields, which are almost similar.
-3 different foot command figures. Two Foundry and one Crusader or A&A (I'm not shure which one).
I would like to have €25.00 or £21.00 plus postage. Take note, I live in Belgium.

A 10 fig unit (unpainted) of Companions, Alexander fig included.
These are from the now defunct Vendel range.
For these I would also like the have €25.00 or £21.00 plus postage.

It is also possible to hand the figures over at the Crisis wargames show in Antwerp (on 3 november), which saves you postage cost.

If you would like to buy anything of it, simply leave a message, or contact me at wDOTvdbergheATpandoraDOTbe. You know what I mean .

I will update my blog soon with some pictures of what I have painted since the last update (not that much).

We plan to play a 3000 points Clash of Empires battle next friday, so maybe a battle report may follow also. Maybe...
