GamesPoet:
So I ended up backing all three of those kickstarters above.

Pledged at the $25 level for the Greeks, the $50 level for the ACW Union Greatcoats,, and the 55 pound level for the buildings.

Only 1 day to go for the WW2 buildings!

GamesPoet:
I increased my pledge level for the Classical Greeks and the campaign has now reached it's 3rd stretch goal.

S.O.F:

I don't know out of all of those you put up those where the guys that looked the least impressive compared to what is already on the market, perhaps I just don't know enough about the various Hoplites out there.

GamesPoet:
I'm a fan of Tiger Miniatures.  In the U.S., these figures can be obtained via Recreational Conflict, a good outfit.

Suspect the pictures of the Hoplites don't do the figures full justice, although not considered high end, I'm sure.  I have some of their other figures from their Herero Wars line, and their Balkan Wars line, and I like both.

I won't likely mix in the Greeks with other company's figures, and keep them in their own units.  At the 50 pound level ($60) that's 68 metal figures for under $1 each, can't beat the price point.

Also, he let's us mix and match as desired, so I'm getting 20 hoplites with Corinthian helmets, might get some attacking hoplites for a couple of bases, and 20 hoplites with Thracian helmets to use as mercenaries or Macedonians.  Plus the 12 Javelins and 12 Archers are going to be 8 of each with 8 slingers instead of the extra Javelins and Bows.

I'll be using these with the rules called Impetus, and they'll be available for different armies if desired.
