Found some old Rospaks hoplites in a drawer.....
A mere 35 years old !
Should I use them or keep them for an even more posterior posterity ? A dilemma.
I actually liked the figures, less detailed maybe than other plastics but a nice style. God knows where the rest of the army with its archers, cavalry and peltasts went ..

5 nearly finished

The first 5 is nearly finished. A few chops and changes. Including an unfortunate colour choice which made it look like a Tyne and Wear Metro for a while.....

As I go I'm trying to work out how the assembly process can be streamlines for ease and mass production.

Shipyard Report

The shipyards now have 4s, 3s, 5s and even lemboi/hemiolia under construction.

Still no alternative to pins for oars but they do look good.
