Ancient greeks - DBA II/5b and II/5c

Posted by Mr. Andrea on 25 Sep 2018, 15:45

Finally!! Got some time to post pictures of some armies for DBA that I painted during this year. Not only Romans and Romans foes. Some steps back in time and here come two ancient Greek armies: Athenians and Thebans. They will soon face each other on the battlefield. In the meantime, let's review the troops.

Very impressive classical wariors and the basing looks geographically very good.

Third picture, the hoplite on the very left... he really caught my attention! The blue shield with the white bird... and brilliant work on the face. Not to mention all the other great figs I see...
And is this non-metallic-metal? If so, it looks fantastic! If not, the true-metallic-metal looks fantastic :mrgreen:

Looking incredibly great, but I recommend to do some conversions of the figures in order to create more diversity. That easy plastic makes head swaps etc. more than easy ;-)

Amazing paintwork, Mr. Andrea. I love specially the shields, the tunics, the helmets' plumes, the armours, the weapons, the horses...Am I forgetting anything? Oh, yes, the bases. I think everything is great. :notworthy:

Very well done, congratulations. :yeah:

Santi.

Those scorpions look like they are about to jump off the shields and enter the fray! But I want to know this: who won? Athenians or Thebans?

We had a DBA fight during Xmas break: an Persian-Theban alliance against a Athenian-Spartan league. The Spartan managed to sustain the Theban charge on the right side of the battlefield, but unfortunately the Athenian crashed the Persian on the left side. I say "unfortunately" as I was on the alliance side.

Thank you Howlin. I saw the Athenians again on the battlefield last week and I liked them as well :mrgreen: I don't really have any painting tutorial to recommend, sorry, and I have note taken any pictures of my painting these figures, just the final result.

I thought I commented earlier but apparently not, the basing looks very arid, perfect for Greek warriors. I'm taking notes!

I wish I could paint this way ...

Very nice armies, seeing them on the game board must be quite a sight.

Congratulations!
