2xArt.  Separate crewmen to allow flexibility of use of the machines. Read somewhere that this set from Zvezda is actually 28mm and intended for use with their ‘Ring of Rule’ fantasy sets.

  1. They look great. Nice work. (And I had to laugh at your Space Marine comment!)

  2. Looking good! A couple years ago I sold all my Hat and Zvezda Alexander's soldiers on eBay. Now I'm wishing I kept them. Alexander and the successors offer such nice model variety for a DBA army. I've been thinking a King Mithradates army would be cool.

  3. Cheers guys.

    I keep slagging off the HaT figures to myself but they are the only game in town if you are after big armies at a sensible price. Another plus of course being the sheer variety available.

    Yeah, I've got a load of redundant GW waterslides, the chaos ones might be good for Roman shields but I don't intend finding out. Far too many projects on the simmer as it is.
