So I've now gotten some paint on my skirmishing javelin men, they kind of painted up the same way as the unarmoured hoplites, but with the shorter javelins I didn't break a single one during painting. So that's a big plus.
This time I also tried something new for me, I based them om single, round bases so they would really look like skirmishers. I plan on using 4 to 6 in a single small unit, depending on what looks best and not too big to represent a small unit, as I only use 2 bases for a small formed unit, 4 or 5 might look the best and still have the overall same size.
I also added some very simple shield designs to this lot of figures, turned out quite ok in the end, it will do at least.
