Amazons?

Hi guys, talk to me about Amazons- anything-

Do you have any, if not, why not?
If you have them what do you have?
Alternative manufacturers?
Thoughts on paint schemes-space punk rocker or Zena?
Anything else?

They are a force i have never used or played against.

I've got a full set of the originals, and thirty or so of the See Thirty modular Amazons that came out earlier this year.

As mentioned, the See Thirty range, but they were a limited release as far as I'm aware and I'm not sure if a manufacturer has picked them up. I've not seen anything else that fits with the originals.

Mine will be allies for my WFB Slann, replacing the somewhat politically displeasing pygmies, so I'll be going with bright Mayan-style colours

In response - yes, At least one of each of the original C series, as above, pretty much as stated and I'm adding bit's and pieces from other manufacturers to bulk out and provide specialist troops such as Celtos http://www.brigademodels.co.uk/Celtos/The%20Gaels.html, Grenadier http://www.mirliton.it/fantasy-25-28mm/amazons and Ral Partha https://ironwindmetals.com/store/index.php?cPath=365_377s.

I've played with them a few times best description Light troops with some fairly high class up grades

John,

I live in a house of women/females (even down to the cat), of course I'm going to have an amazonian army. :lol:
