A little more progress on this project:
Here is another comparison picture between various manufacturers of Trojan War figures, with a Victrix hoplite included for scale.
This project has been through the wringer in my mind for a long time. My initial enthusiasm was tempered by the long delivery times for both my Redoubt and Foundry orders, with both companies taking about 12 weeks for delivery. My Newline order did not take quite as long, however. Plus, many iterations of rules ideas were considered. I think that I am on the right course now, and the first unit will be primed soon.
