While I'm still whiling away at my Early Achaemenid Persian Immortals element...
...I present to you my first element of HaT Hoplites.
Well, almost HaT Hoplites. There's a HaT Punic Wars African spearman in there...for some reason.
(They look much less slap dash (though indeed I was not slap dash with the paint - I thought I was being ever so careful!) to the human eye. Digital photography can be so cruel!)
Anyway, I've also got these Veni Vidi Vici transfers for same...
...but the carrier film is a bit yellowed, so...I'm not sure. I think I'll try the Gorgan's head on the yellow shield guy, but I'm not sure about the rest.
Whatdyathink? To decal, or not to decal, that is the question.
[A bit later]
Not too bad. Had to put a [turned out to be gloss] varnish over the blue shield, as the decal's shiny-ness stuck out like a sore thumb. I may need to get some flat varnish at some point.
