Macedonian 28mm Phalanx

The Macedonian army I ordered from Wargames Foundry arrived the other day and to my horror none of them came with weapons! I am aware that buying individual packs require weapons but I assumed that buying from an army deal would automatically include weapons as it's supposed to be a complete army. So I now have lots of angry, ill-equipped Greeks with no weapons. Nowhere on the page does it say separate weapons are required so I might send them a polite email asking what I can do.

I however have some pikes that I got free with my ancients painting set which will arm some of the troops (See the pictures included in this post). They are very attractive figures and i'll really enjoy painting them (although it will have to wait a little while whilst I finish of some of my Roman units).

Greetings and welcome to my new blog! I have just purchased a Macedonian army from Wargames Foundry and have created this blog to document its development from purchase through to its painting and finally, it's completion.

I will regularly update this blog with pictures to show each stage of the army's creation.

This blog may be useful if you're considering building an army or are in the process of building one so we can overcome the problems faced together. It'd be great if you could 'follow' my blog so you can keep up to date with what's happening (I promise to only update this when I actually have something to show!)
