Pics of new Xyston Spanish and casualties

Xyston have sent me a few samples of their latest releases - an ancient Spanish range and some Greek hoplite casualties. As usual the figures have the cleanly cast, angular look of Xyston's typical style, but in a new innovation (to me) some of the Spanish have been cast with separate arms to allow greater variety in sword poses
The figures are not as huge as some Xyston ranges - maybe a concession to compatibility with other ranges, but the Spanish would still struggle to mix well with Corvus Belli's market-leading set.

It will be interesting to see if the casualty figures are a one-off, or whether Xyston will be building a range to compete with Donningtons large range of dead guys - but starting with hoplites must be a good idea, as I;ve always found that protected spearmen get disrupted very easily!

Yay more dead guys - you can never have enough. There are just so many uses for them :)
