Atlantic Greek Chariot

Not really up to todays standards..well it was released in 1977!!!
The set shown on PSR is the full booklet style box, I used to love reading the stuff inside!! :-D

The "chariots only" set. The painted bods on the boxart are definately the 1/32nd versions..the size of the moss in the picture is a dead giveaway.
Hello to Franck from  the Forgotten & Glorious Company of Art.   28mm WWI minis...some of them painted by Oniria..IMHO, one of the best painters in the hobby. 
PS, Franck, your blogger friends link is not on. 


And this looks interesting. It´s been running since the 1st of January this year. I haven´t heard anything about it anywhere..and even though I follow La Figoblogtheque, a vote for your favourite blog of 2011..

  1. Even for not being up to today's standard minis I think they look great.

  3. A classic indeed! But there again I've always been a sucker for '70's plastic toys.

  7. Ah-History! - Basic but nice!

    Todays offerings always seem to be historically occassionally iffy, but beautifully animated and cast.

    Your paint jobs make even the least good rather fetching though!

    Keep it up!

  8. I had the large Egyptian set but never got the Greeks, as there were always a few more things than I could afford. These look great.

  11. I have them still unpainted; when I dabbled in 1/72nd DBA armies I got the set for the guys on horseback. Dean

  12. Very Nice. Always been a sucker for ancients. Haven´t tried painting up my atlantic greek chariots (yet)... i will eventually.

    Still working on my sumerians. And i don´t paint nearly as well as you. Otherwise i´d get my own blog about figures too...

    Hope to have as fine a blog as you do. But paintingwise i´ll be satisfied at being second to you, any day. :)

  14. Lovely retro look!

    Could you tell me how many chariots are in the box? I'm planning to make some statues with that.

    Thanks,
