Paint or Sell — Minoan and Mycenaean Greeks

Chariot Miniatures this time. I’m starting to lean towards the Classical and Dark Ages periods for ancient wargaming rather than Biblicals so I am now looking closely at these fellows. As with the others, there should be around about 400AP (plus or minus) in DBMM terms although the army probably needs another chariot. The Chariot Miniatures are really very lovely but I think I have fallen out of love with the Biblical Period.

The red stain on the packets is not Thomo’s blood (although a late night accident with a carton cutter last night almost had me bleeding over my figures) but rather a bottle of red glaze that leaked on a move from somewhere to somewhere else with the figures.

    Hmm.. tempting, just been out sanding bases for the 20mm WW2 stuff, but also applied some paint to the Essex DBA Hebrews. Unfortunately, the heat is such, that the paint is drying before it flows onto the figures, so have abandoned that.

      Try putting the paint onto a piece of wet paper towel with paint and a little water to thin it. Should stay wet onto the figure that way.

        Too much like hard work.. time to go jump in the pool instead.

    Forgive my ignorance, Thomo. 16 or 28? 28 says sell. To me.

      16 or 28? or is that 15 or 28? Assuming the later, they are 15mm but I’ve really gone off the Biblical period. They are sweet figures and a lot of chariots and flesh so not that much painting but I’m starting to feel like I should be rationalising down to, oh, only 50 or so periods 🙂

    Rationalise periods? Wash your mouth out, aren’t you a true wargamer? Of course, I picked up some GHQ models for $10 today .. WW1 naval lot. Victory at Sea rules, Battleships of WW1 book, and lot of GHQ 1:2400 ships. $10 for the lot. 🙂 I am just composing a post about my new years resolutions.

      We may be able to arrange a swap. I’m bringing some stock with me. BTW current ETA is Tuesday afternoon as I am spending some time with Number One in Sydney.

    Let’s talk about it on Tuesday.. My post now up is scaring me… 🙂


      • Doug 29 December 2013 / 7:26 am

        I know, but I’m already scared – maybe I should be out in the shed painting 😉

    I have often thought about DBA Minoan or Mycenaeans, but have never considered Chariot. Obviously I should have…
