Warlord Phalangites

Warlord released their plastic Macedonian Phalangites kit this week.  The box contains figures to make 40 Phalangites, all from a single sprue with 4 bodies, 6 heads, 4 shields and 6 pikes.   The sculpting is first class with sharp detail all around & no noticeable flat areas from the steel molds.  There is no flash on the figures & mold lines are very minor.  Figure size is small – matching well with Gripping Beast metal Phalangites and Immortal plastic Hoplites.   For comparison, a model from the large end of 28mm, the Gorgon Etruscan Hoplite is included in the photos.

    Thanks for the comparison shots and for sharing your initial impression! If there is any way for you to post pictures of the Warlord phalangites next to Immortal/Warlord hoplites that would sure be appreciated.

    I don’t have any of the Immortal/WL Hoplites, but I was able to compare the two against a friend’s unit. The figure torsos from the two kits are very similar in height with both having a slim body compared the metal GB figure.

    Are you thinking of mixing parts from the two kits?

    I see, thanks for the clarification.

    Well, it might be too much of a hazzle to mix parts between the kits (and with the Perry Sudanese, which is a favorite bit box of mine) since the arms are fastened in a totally different way. But its always nice to know that they could potentially work together.
