Finished the third base of pike for my large unit this afternoon:
Impetus Unit Type: FP
Base Size: 8cm x 3cm
Manufacturer: Old Glory
Of all the units I've painted for this army, I find the pike hardest to get through. the poses are the most uniform, and there's a lot of them, so it feels like a bit of grind. I also find that because I'm trying to make the formation dense, and the base is so small, there's less room to take advantage of the more scenic basing I enjoy with Impetus.
That said, when they're all ranked up with the other bases in the unit, it does look at least moderately bad-ass.
The 400 point version of the Antigonid list I'm planning has another unit of these, and converts the Lykian hoplites for pike. That's a fair whack of painting. I might end up leaving that on the to-do pile for a while. In the meantime, I'm now two bases plus a command stand from fully painted at 300 points. I'm hoping to get in a game on Wednesday, though likely using JJM's 25mm figures. If all goes according to plan, I'll be trying out my planned 300 point list for the Spartans. Assuming the game goes off (JJM is trying to confirm his availability), I should get an AAR up Thursday.
