Pyrrhic army; Aventine miniatures

Post by godzeusgr » Mon Feb 18, 2013 10:30 pm

Some pictures from the Pyrrhic army of Andreas Panagopoulos (kaiser at otenet.gr). Aventine miniatures, 28mm and LBMS transfers. The connection tube of the sarissa is rolled lead foil.

Beautiful work - but do the experts still believe in the connecting sleeve :?:

Stunning!!!
Beautiful work ...

I think there is some doubt about the two-part sarrisas ... But I love the look of his models ...

I really don't know. I'm not an expert. But it seems normal for southern Greece where forest with tall trees were and still are rare.

Wouldn't Pyrrhus have had access to what is now NW Greece and Albania?
Quibbles aside, those figures pretty much embody the glamour that got me into Ancient Wargaming - with Minifigs S Range Assyrians and Egyptians; Xmas 1971ish :shock:
Thanks you to and Mr Panagopoulos for sharing these images 8)

Yes Sarmaticus, you are right; Pyrrhus had access to those areas. As for the figures, I have the same feeling with you. Especially I liked the #6 photo. (The pikemen with the chainmail). I wish I could have the money and the time to begin a project at 28mm with those pikemen.
