28mm Trojan spearmen


This unit of Trojan spearmen has been on the painting shelf for some time now, painted in stages simply because I decided I wasn't overly taken with the figures. These are Newline (with a Foundry commander figure on the centre base), and while I really liked the Newline archers I posted last week, I just couldn't feel the same enthusiasm for these chaps. Now that they are done and based I'm quite happy with them though. They still need to be sprayed with a matt varnish of course.

This army has been built with flexibility in mind, so for Fantastic Battles these will be a unit of three formed companies with shieldwall, long spears and mixed shooting. For l'Art de la Guerre they are three units of heavy spearmen with pavises and missle supports, and should they be used in Hail Caesar I think they count as a single unit of medium spearment with long spears and a weak shooting attack.

And lasly a wee teaser shot of the army coming together...


  1. This is going to be a superb looking army. I also like how you are trying to cover multiple rule sets, something I try to do as well.

    1. Thanks! Yes, if I'm putting time, effort and grim determination into building an army, I want to be able to use it as often as possible! :)

  2. Gorgeous unit, impressive close ups!
