Mark provided me with these 5mm strips and a few hours later I produced the following. Most time went on researching uniforms and deciding what paints to use.
The ACW came up best and for my purposes are what I am looking for - they look great enmass on big bases. The knights and hoplites in my opinion really deserve larger figures so the livery and shield designs can be fully revealed.
I can't recall which brand the ACW strip is (the others are Heroics and Ros), but they have character even if their hats are a bit big. The magnification provided by the digital photos is a bit scary.
