Magna Grecia Peltasts - Agema conversion






Those are the peltasts I made by converting Agema Miniatures' Roman Velites. I used scabbards, swords and shields from Wargames Factory sets (Amazons, Skeletons and Persians), head swaps from Warlord Games/Immortal Miniatures Classical Greek sets and adding steel pin javelins as well as some green stuff here and there.



I really like this set from Agema miniatures, they are very nice in terms of anatomy and scale, they are on the thin side as far as bulkiness which for my taste is a good thing. The hand throwing the javelins is particulary cool as the hand and fingers are set in a throwing pose so rather than just gripping the whole javelin in a closed fist the figure looks more realistic.

As far as historical accuracy I figured that by calling them 'Magna Grecia' peltasts I will be able to get away with having some Roman heads, clothing in there as well as daggers to show the Roman influence.

The shields that originally came with velites will also not go to waste, with a bit of greenstuffing they will make some good Tarantine shields and thus effectively converting my Macedonian cavalry into Tarantines. So that means the only thing I did not get to use from this set are the wolf pelt heads but with both Agema and Victrix gearing up to release Republican Roman sets I might just be tempted into starting another army.....
