Antigonos Monophthalmos and the Argyraspides

9 April, 2014

With all the figures I’ve bought recently and all the rebasing and projects I’ve started, getting the seven elements of successor pike done has not been a terribly exciting proposition. A few weekends ago I finished three of them (while I painted the ogres). The other four have their shields done and much else. Now I have the argyraspides (silver shields) completed and with them a foot commander, a special character, Antigonos Monophthalmos (one-eyed). They are all Freikorp figures. They had a couple of outings a fortnight ago against Joel’s Lysimachus; they failed in each.

And another.

And another.

The Argyraspides used as a regular pair of elements.

I can now fight pike blocks against each other (though only four pike a side as yet). When the other four elements are done…

      Thanks. I’d drilled right through the figures’ bases for the pikes; it meant they didn’t stand properly, as the pikes poked through.I had to drill into the MDF to fix this!

        I do need to paint my own second batch of Macedonian pike. Stalled at 12 stands currently. Silver Shields just seem too likely to change sides.

        Good point. I figure that once they become Seleucid they should calm down.
