Macedonian Hypaspist and... Draconians!?

What the…?

(It seemed like a good idea at the time)

I may have mentioned starting to base some Skythians and some Macedonian pike earlier… well, while I was at it I noticed this one stand worth of figures half painted from a year or so ago and decided to finish them off. (Also, y’know, since all the cool kids are doing Macedonian armies right now, how could I nit get in on that action). No, I will NOT be veering off on some new tangent – though I DO have enough figures to do five (count ‘em, FIVE!) Macedonian Successor armies… and I totally WILL do them all at some point and run a Diadochi campaign (BWA-HA-HA-Ha-Ha-ha-ha-haaaaaa….) – but that’s just not in the cards at any point in the near future

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

(Sorry about the sub-standard pics – it’s pouring rain out today so I had to take pics inside…)

These are Macedonian Hypaspist from RAFM (which is, apparently, currently having a 30% off sale until October 17th). They’ll see use as that 4Spear or 4Auxilia option in the Alexandrian Macedonian (II/12) army, and possibly the 1x3/4Auxilia in the Alexandrian Imperial… and maybe even the 1x 4Auxilia in the Macedonian Early Successor (II/18)….?

What I really need to get working on (when I ever get around to these) is the scads and scads of PIKE!!

I’ve also been working on a few things that I will actually make use of in the near future…

The fellow in the front is a figure from Reaper Miniatures, the rest are old Grenadier models that I’ve been picking up off ebay…

They are “draconians” for my Savage Saturday Dragonlance Campaign (and the Kid’s Campaign too!)

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Another pair of minis for Mike… Some other assorted Fantasy stuff… Dwarves for HotT… some Vikings… Scots… Anglos… other strange and bizarre wonders to behold…


  1. Nice job on the Macedonians. Let me know if you find a reasonable 28mm elephant as I'm looking for one for my Carthaginians.

  2. Cheers Bob!

    What's "reasonable"...?

    Doesn't Hät make carthaginian War Elephants?

    Oooh! Yep, right here:

    8023 War Elephants (6 Elephants, 18 figures)

    Rafm also does Successor and Indian Hefelumps (which are 30% off right now...):

    Armored War Elephant(have to enter a code at check out time - that's the regular price)

    I suppose niether are "28mm" if that's what you;re looking for... (the Rafm ones are really "Old School 25mm")

    I have one that's painted - HERE

  3. Really nice shield design and color scheme on the Macedonians. As always, they look great.
