Next on the completion list are the first of my Phamphylian ninjas . . . I mean, skirmishers.
Impetus Unit Type: S
Base Size: 8cm x 2cm
Manufacturer: Old Glory 15mm
This was the unit that did such sterling service in my last game. I need to take at least one of these in games below 500 points, and will likely paint up another to with it.
As I've noted in the past, skirmishers play a somewhat complex role in Impetus. They're critical in the early game to screen, and help prevent early disruption and VBU loss, and in the mid-to-late game, if you can manoeuvre effectively, can pose a real threat with point-blank missile fire.
On a related note, the rest of my Spartan miniatures arrived the other day, thanks to a sale at Legends in Time. That package was closely followed by another with some Khador minis for which I traded (almost) the last of my Khador. While the latter are definitely in the "one day" pile, I'm pretty stoked about the Spartans. Along with them came some peltasts and Macedonian commanders who should do good service in the Antigonid force.
Elephants are proceeding apace, and I'm hoping to have them up on the blog by the weekend.
