Seleucid Companion Wedge

Well my 1st Corps figures finally made it in, after over a month waiting. I ordered it via Scale Creep Minis - but the initial order Mark received from 1st Corps didn't include Scythed Chariots. Along with the chariot, I needed four more cavalry figures to complete the wedge. I managed to finish them up today.
They are a mixture of 1st Corps Hetairoi and Agema sets. The main difference is the horses have different types of barding, and also the Agema guys have full leg armor. I wanted the unit to have a little variety. Their helmets are identical though.
I regret that I couldn't complete the chariot model for tomorrow's playtest for our Magnesia game scheduled for Enfilade! in May.
I've also been waiting on (for over a month) another order to complete the Seleucid army. I ordered some Old Glory stuff from Warweb. The delay was that they didn't have all the items in stock; they should be here any day. For tomorrow's game Samurai will be substituted for Dahae, Turcopoles for Gallic Noble cavalry, and Hoplites for a Gallic Warband.


  1. Cav and base look stunning, shame the chariot has to wait. Hope you game goes well.
    Peace James

  2. Fantastic looking mini's- and the wedge turned out rather nicely!

  3. Looking good there Dean, the relic figure really did come up very well, so did the rest of course. Waiting for orders is a pain I've got 5 outstanding at the moment worth about $400 and I'm starting to get twitchy.


  4. The unit looks great as ever!
    Cheers, Wolfgang

  5. The cav and the wedge base truly look grand - your skills are most impressive

    I'm looking forward to seeing how they do on the table


  6. Thank you all very much for the great comments. Of we get antsy waiting on orders - we want our toys, and we want them now! ;)! I actually started on the Scythed Chariot this morning; still won't be done in time for today's playtest - have to leave in about an hour.

    Warm Regards, Dean

  7. Very impressive.
    I look forward to seeing the chariot finished.

  8. Lovely brushwork work Dean. The unit looks lovely on the wedge base.

    I hope this unit wins you many battles.


  9. Thank you all for the kind comments. The wedge was in action today - actually on the table, but saw no real action. The mounted bowmen screened them so well they never got into contact. Regards, Dean
