Last Greek skirmishers

This is my third and final unit of Greek skirmishers for Cynoscephalae this Saturday. Thirty six skirmishers painted in just over six weeks (all except one which I painted in January). I still seem to have quite a few in my drawers so I'd better work out how many I would ever need for an army. One day I will have to resolve the "are they spears or javelins?" issue and add a spare javelin if the latter.
For Cynoscephale, with the Thracians that I should finish tomorrow, I will have painted:
36 Greek skirmishers
12 Cretan Archers
12 Thracian Peltasts
6 Italian javelin men
8 Greek Light Cavalry
16 Greek/Macedonian Heavy Cavalry
2 Macedonian Generals
There are also all the Punic Romans I painted as well, thinking they might be needed. In fact, I think I am just taking 24 Velites.
Even so, that's 92 figures plus the Romans. They will nearly all be useful for the Spartan Mercenary Army, earlier Greek armies and Macedonian armies.
