Paint or Sell — Seleucid Successors

Hmm, these are Essex Miniatures and I am quite attracted to these. I’m leaning towards the paint side of paint or sell, although I expect that they will remain in the lead pile for quite some time. The Successors are at least in that Classical Period I like and are at least not Roman (although I will get to the Romans later).

The army is also about 400AP in DBMM terms and consists of:

Essex Miniatures

3 MPA1 Macedonian, Greek Command 9
1 MPA3 Thracian Peltast rhomphaia 8
1 MPA4 Thrancian Peltast Javelin 8

4 MPA84 Seleucid Agyraspids 32
1 MPA86 Companion Cavalry 4

    Some of Essex’s nicer figures, a very competitive army under most rule-sets, plenty of toys, (elephants, camels, cataphracts) – what’s not to like. Plus, pretty much all unformed, so again, quick to paint on the old black undercoat.. You know you want to paint them…
