Greek cavalry and Successor elephants done.

And together at last! Thebans and hamippoi from Xyston along with a test pair of the Potbelly Miniatures Successor jumbos (sans towers).


 




There's nothing negative to be said about Xyston, and the Potbelly models were good to work with. I do fear for the pikes, as the 3d printed plastic is quite brittle. To replace them was going to cause problems as well, so I decided to leave them be and if they break I will cross that bridge when I come to it. It would be great to have the option to order them with open hands, but they are very good value and take paint nicely. They are a little larger than your usual 15mm Indian elephant, but they should look good on the table and on the whole I am very pleased with them.

  4. Good progress Aaron.

    I must admit I am very reluctant to try 3D Printed miniatures for fear of breakage. I see the cost in lead as being very minimal in comparison to my investment in time painting miniatures. That also likely accounts for why I develop a nervous twitch when my opponents don't pack their miniatures well for transport after a game.
