Hi all - thinking of fielding some spear - armed Hypaspists for my project and was just wondering how to convert

A thought is to use Italian Hoplites figs with their feathered helmets and trimming the disc cuirass to resemble to a linothorax - another option is to use standing open handed phalangites figs with a spear - length pin and make some roughly shaped feathers from green stuff - any ideas?

regards

Paris

Personally I would opt for your second suggestion, as that is exactly what I've done.
