Peltasts 2 - the Mercenaries

The standard wargames LTS,J,Sh peltast of the 70s...

This lot started life as 8  psiloi back in the 70's. With a few exceptions, most of my Hellenistic troops wore red tunics.

These ones are ex Harry. Nice shield patterns. I'll probably use these in my Successor armies rather than Alexandrian ones as they carry the thureos. Poor logic as the PB Thracians also carry the thureos.

As these ones have pelta rather than thureos, these will find themselves fighting for Alexander.


  1. Awesome shield patterns and beautiful paint job...

    1. I know who painted some of the Macedonians but not these - suspect Harry but hard to tell. But yes, nice shields.
