Continuing the Roman theme, these guys are my scorpion unit for my Imperial Roman armyAgain they are Pendraken figures. I’ve not put them together right as I thought the little box was an ammo box so I mounted the bows on a piece of balsa wood, when in…

Roman Archers

I’ve got a fair few units of archers in my Roman force. You get one unit in the Pendraken 1000pt starter army, and I then picked up another 100 or so Pendraken figures from a friend who wasn’t using them, which gave me a second unit. Finally I picked u…

Gauls – Warmaster Ancients

I’m hoping to get a bit more organised with my blogging in the future, I think I need to try and blog smaller and more often, but we’ll see how it goes. I’ve been doing a lot of Infinity recently, but there is still a fair bit of Warmaster Ancients lov…

This is my general stand for the Carthage army, I’ve put it on a slightly bigger base so there is room to pack out the stand with some extra figures and make it stand out. Figures are Magister Millitim. Mostly from the Carthage command pack, but w…

Apologies for the time since the last post, I’ve got distracted with various projects, some of which I’ll probably get round to showing on here. I’ve built up a ~6000pt Vampire army made up of ebay purchases and lots of Mantic’s fabulous undead range. …

Carthage Commander

I’ve been very quiet recently, got sucked into 28mm for a while; Mantic Undead, Dark Elves for Warhammer and some zombie survivors. I think I’ll start to post stuff about these as well. I figure its probably better to post regularly and be a little les…

This the second of the two games I played at the Stalbridge Warmaster Ancients day last month. It was a Dark Ages battle between two sets of Eastern Barbarians (at least that’s how the Romans and Byzantines would have probably seen them).I had first pi…

TB Line have been busy of late, just releasing two more 10mm Ancients packs; Numidian Skirmishers and Balearic Slingers.The Numidians look really good, excellent definition. Not so sure about the skirmishers though, they seem to lack a bit of definitio…

Big range expansion for Governance of Technology

I’ve been a huge fan of Antenociti’s Workshop; Jed Norton’s terrain and lately miniature website, for a long time. It introduced me to Infinity and really upped the stakes in my terrain scratch building. Although slightly off-topic, this is one of my c…
