Amazon Peltasts

Filed under: Ancients, Moonraker Miniatures — gisby @ 16:44


When Moonraker Miniatures made the Ludus Gladiators available, I was pleased as punch. I had wanted to make a unit of peltasts from their female gladiator (GLAD07) but she was only available as part of a pre-painted set.

Now it was possible to do so.


I replaced the swords with wire javelins.


Because the figures have a wide metal belt and strap-on greaves, they look more Italian than Greek, so I tried to paint the tunics appropriately. But since they are fantasy figures (Amazons) so long as they are colourful they look OK.


They are based as regular LMI for WRG 6th ed.
