Raphia-Selucid Phalangites

Another taxis of pike for the Selcuid side, 1 of 9 taxis for that faction.  So at 32 figures each a nice total of 288 men....it is a good sized project!


Xyston figures with steel pikes, so a veritable pin cushion so be careful where you place your hands lol


Raphia, Selcuid Thureophoroi

The latest additions painted and ready to be based.
These are two of the three units of Thureophorai who where led by Byttacus of Macedon during the battle.
As always the figures are Xyston, while they are lovely figures and great to paint they are on the large side compared with the rest of the Macedonian/Greek ranges.

Ptolemy GrecoEgyptian Cavalry

A unit of heavy Ptolemy cavalry, Egyptian horse in Greek style, armed with lance.
I do love the Imputvs basing system, good looking units without tons of figures!


As always Xyston miniatures.


10mm 7 Years War

More additions to the Seven Year War project, two Reichsarmee units and two Hanovarian units for the Allied Pragmatic Army.

As with the previous Russians I have manged to find and print up some free flags off the Interweb!

 Two Reichsarmee and Two Hanovarian Units

Hanovarian 11B de le Chevallerie
 
 Hanoverian Combined Grenadiers.  Hanoverian foot regiments had only a small company of grenadiers each.  So this combined regiment is made up of four separate detachments from regiments 3A Knesdenberg, 6A Hardenberg, 10A Post and 13A Halberstadt.
  
 Reichsarmee combined grenadiers from Kurmainz and Mainz Krisregiments.

Hesse-Damdstadt Leib Garde Grenadiers

10mm 7 Years War Russians

The latest batch of my 7YW Russian project.
One regiment of Horse Grenadiers and three foot regiments.

 Regiment Shirvanskiy

 Regiment Suzdalskiy

Regiment Neshebugskiy

Horse Grenadiers St Petersburgskiy

15mm Fantasy Barbarians

I had these models laying around so thought I'd finish them off.
These are for my fantasy Barbarian army, in Kings of War terms Large Cavalry.  I just think they are bad ass lol!


Xyston Gauls on plastic toy dinosaurs, I just love them!

Raphia, more new figures painted...

I'm really liking the unit figure size of the Imputvs/To The Strongest bases. I painted 24 skirmish figures, Greek bow and slingers, that is 6 bases.  These troops were mainly used as escorts for the elephants employed by both armies.
Talking of elephants, there are 17 elephants bases used in the battle, that's a lot of Nellies!



As usual these are Xyston miniatures and are just great.
