Well these are the last of the line troops....two large pike phalanxes, Ptolemy guards pike and Seleucid Thorakites.
These are the Ptolemy elite pikes, the Basilikon. They form, normal size pike units and not large phalanxes but there are three of them so I could put them together.
The last of the Ptolemy pike phalanxes, they have five of these unit..they will form a very solid wall in the battle line.
And the last of the Seleucid phalanxes, now there were a lot of these, nine infact, which is 288 figures for these alone.
Lastly the Greek mercenary thorakites, yes I know they should be armoured by Xyston do not do a mail wearing thorakite figure. These are Hellenistic Thracians and do a wonderful job!
So that is it, the rank and file have been completed.
There are commanders left to finish, they have been painted but need Army Painter Dark Tone and Matt Varnish to finish them off.
Also I have my final three elephants on the painting table, once these are done that will be all of my available miniatures for the Raphia project painted.I still need to buy 5 elephants for Ptolemy and 14 for Seleucid.
So the painting total, so far is 1234 foot, 148 mounted and 9 elephants.
Now all I have to do is base them and make the bases look nice, oh and I hate basing lol . And there are only 156 bases to do!!!!!
Obviously as I complete the basing I will add more photos.
