Curteys Hoplites and EMP Ogres

Recently I was asked if we would paint some display figures for Curteys / 1st Corp Miniatures, they sent me a couple of packs of their new Greek hoplites through for me to paint.

 I possibly picked the worst of all the days this week to take pictures, with really dull weather so these don't look as good in the pictures as they do to the eye. They are not based as they wish to do this themselves to match all their existing figures.

They will also be putting on shield decals to finish them off.

Next up was a huge batch of Ogres from the ever expanding ranges at EMP games. This package contained 12 of the wee beasties, not that they can be considered small in any way.

6 of the figures came with machine gun type armament, I was given free range on the colour scheme, with the condition that the weapons all matched in each type, i.e. all the machine guns looked the same.

 2 come with a type of sniper rifle as shown above.

The final four come with some crude form of rocket or grenade launcher????

That concludes this post its back to the workbench for me
