|01/02/01 Newline Designs 25mm Spartan Hoplite
This is an example of the Newline Hoplite range. He's a bit small to fit in with the new Foundry giants, but he isn't petite either!
A nice Dark Age Design lambda transfer finishes him off. All in all an effective miniature, cleanly done like all Newline's 25mm castings.

small hole in the cape..easily filled.
|09/22/00 Newline Designs Alexander the Great
This is a really cool 25mm figure! Foundry may be about to release an Alexander figure..but if you can't wait you can't go too far wrong with this fine figure! I especially like the "Lion Helm" as depicted on the Alexander sarcophagus. The horse is a little chunky but nothing to sneer at (they sent me the wrong horse... and I even had the correct one that I bought at Historicon..but oops I didn't dig that one out! (The correct one has the Leopard's head at the front..dang I'll just have to pry this guy off when I paint up that one!..Doh! I hate it when I 'm so daft).
These castings require a little prep, this one had a small hole in the cape..easily filled.

(anyway it will annoy Don Effinger if I post the same things he is working on!)

|08/20/00 "King Tiger" Seleucid Elephant
This is the "King Tiger" Old Glory Seleucid armored elephant. Notice the cool shield design which was provided by Dark Age Design, the forehead symbol is an old REVO decal rummaged from the dust bin, a Foundry Hastati (playing possum) fills out the scene!
|10/29/99 Eureka Samnite
The first offering is this brand new Eureka 25mm Samnite (don't kid yourself he's really closer to 30mm tall!) The figure is cleanly molded, and also includes a nicely molded spear, the five feathered headdress, and the funky "half-scutum" shield. The pose is a bit static, but I bent the shield arm up, so he's in a ready for action poseThis figure's anatomy is best described as "lanky", he has slender features, this could be welcome to many since many figure manufacturers tend towards the "beefy" side of things. I get tired of "Buffalo armed" muscle men that put Arnold to shame! A quick trip to the Osprey "Early Roman Armies" book and I was hooked on the "politically incorrect" insignias. (Since it is rare that I get to open my green paint tube).
