This week I've been getting more troops ready. Some rebasing needed to be done in a couple of places but, in general, it was a pretty painless exersize.
The Antigonids' are looking better off at the moment with a big influx of theurophori and peltasts. They do have the larger army so it's only expected that I need to make a lot more of them. The Rhodians, on the other hand have grown at a slower rate. The main re-basing that I did was on their javelin infantry. I decided that I should reduce the number of figures on the single unit I had already completed and by painting a few more I managed to turn one unit + a few, into three light infantry units. Again, the Rhodian units are split into two bases to allow them to be placed onto the city walls.
Three units of javelins.
Elite Missile Troops - Cretan Archers & Rhodian Slingers
A General and some marines for harbour defence.
For the Antigonids:
Four units of light infantry ~ Peltasts.
Theurophori have doubled their numbers to 6 units.
Two more battering rams.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~One thing I am having trouble finding is the names of the other generals fighting with Demetrius. I've found one ~ Alcimus ~ who lead the incursion into the city after the walls were breached anddied there. As for the Rhodian commanders, I'm going to use the names of those mentioned in L. Sprauge De Camp's novel: The Bronze God of Rhodes (whether they are real persons of not!).
Another unit of Rhodian Marines (just finished).
