So I’ve finally finished my extra-tiny Greek forces… for now. With these latest additions, the ranks are sufficiently fleshed out to allow both for quite sizable Greeks vs Greeks battles during most of the Classical period, and for future major clashes with Persians or so-called Barbarians, for example.
First off, I did some extra units of Psiloi and Thessalian Cavalry – you can’t really have enough skirmishers when most of the other units involved are Hoplites.
I also painted a bunch of Artillery. There are of course no documented use of Greek Artillery during the Peloponnesian War (circa 400 BC seems to be the starting point for the technology), but they might find some use in other settings – why not in Sicily for example?
Altogether, there are now 36 units ready for battle (using 60x30mm bases). I haven’t counted the individual models, but there are plenty of them to be sure.
Painting and playing with these little lads has really got me hooked on the whole 6mm thing. There are just so many upsides to the scale and, at least to me, very few drawbacks. So I’ll certainly continue my adventures in the realm of the Really Small very soon – next up will probably be a Persian army.
I’ve also had several games lately using these models, so stay tuned for some juicy AARs!
