This is a series of 1/72 scale decals/shield transfers for #8045 Greek Hoplites made by Little Big Men Studios in the UK.
These are rub off transfers that require no water. Simply cut them out, peel off the backing, press into position and press down firmly. Peel off the protective top layer and the transfer is in place. The transfers are on white backing paper so no priming is necessary. The transfers are fully shaded to look like they have been hand painted. They are specifically made for for the HaT figures so they are perfectly scaled to size.
Design notes: "Hoplites tended to paint their shields on a painted background or straight onto the polished bronze face of the shield. Emblems such as Cups, Gorgons, bulls etc... were wideley used by hoplites. Later Hoplites may have used symbols of their city state, such as Sparta used the Lambda and Thebes used the Club. (Transfers for these will follow) Individual designs would have carried on in use until the end of the Hoplite period."
