These are the final Ps elements, looking good!

This shows stage 1 of my 2Ps x 2 build. The HaT originals (left) are fine, save that the helmet is unsuitable. So I grabbed four Spanish slingers, whicked their heads off, and painstakingly drilled pinned and glued. The greystuff collar was rolled around each pin, because I knew I would not have a good fit.

Ok, changed my mind, nothing new there! I switched from standing-at-rest hoplites, the mild conversion planned, to a more ambitious one.
The original mini, foreground, shows how converted minis have had a dynamic tweak. Heads turned quarter (just a hot water tweak) and left arm separated from body, notched, and flexed a little again using hot water. The spears are added using hot glue, to top of hand. Clumsy I know. I got most of the shields on with hot glue but one stubbornly resisted so I laboriously pinned and glued that one.

Chugged away on the Italiot Spears (last post) and by evening I got three elements worth ready for basing. Four minis are re-based from a previous 4Ax element. So that's four of the Campanians done. Next is some light conversion work on Poly Roman minis, removing swords and altering tunics slightly. They will be the 4th hoplite element.
Campanians also need 4x3Ax, of which I have two, with a small question mark over their composition.

So overall, I have a double II39 Iberian force: and an element of 4Ax Lusitanians and another of Balearic slingers.
