As a child, I loved to pick up books in my parent's library, and among my favorites were the Iliad and Odyssey, because I loved the old fashioned illustrations representing hoplites, especially their round shields (hoplôn in ancient greek) with mythological figures painted on.
The first 1/72 figures I was offered were the Ancient Greeks by Atlantic. At that time (I was ten), I decorated them with the pens issued with Playmobil colors
I will try to make some pictures one of these days...
Years (not to say decades) after that, I bought one box of hoplites by Zvezda and began to paint them with acrylics, then remembered how much I loved the Atlantic ones and decided to paint them the same standard.
Here are a few pictures of the result - what do you think of it ? Do the Atlantic figures bring you childhood memories ?
