Downsizing my oversized 15mm ancients collection means I have realised that I enough spares to sell on eBay a whole "Arab" army, using figures from various manufacturers to make up armies for many of the "Arab" forces in the L'Art de la Guerre rulebook. That means that on eBay right now is an army made up of the following ADLG-based units;3 Generals1 Elephant 2 "Dailami" Medium Foot6 Ghilman Bow-armed Cavalry 4 LH with bow2 LH with javelin/Impact1 LH Javelin2 LF Bow4 HI Spearmen4 "DBx" bases of Bow + 2 "DBx" bases of Swordsmen, plus metal sabots to base them as bow-only or as mixed units3 Knights2 Spearmen1 Crossbow unit1 LF BowmanArmy Baggage Train 80x40 baseAllied "Christian" contingent ofThe figures are mostly Essex, but also include Outpost (most of the Arab cavalry) and a few others. They are all based and magnabased.The auction ends around 8pm on Sunday 20th UK time.
With my 4 Bisley 15 drawer filing cabinet (eBay link) figure storage solution rapidly approaching "full" status, rather than test the floorboards (and my domestic harmony) with a 5th cabinet it's become time to have a bit of a new year clearout.The end result is that onto eBay rumbles a 15mm WW2 Russian army (well, probably more like a company with armour support) as well as some excess 15mm German armour.The Russian figures - and there are nearly 200 of them - are mostly original Battlefront metal Russians - well fed little chaps with those cute big round heads. Originally collected and based for Peter Pig's PBI ruleset, there's also a host of casualty markers included.The accompanying armoured support is eclectic and numerous - T34's, KV1's as well as some more exotic bits of machinery as well.PBI bases its LMGs and AT rifles as separate teams, as well as officers for each platoon and company HQ.The tanks are mostly (but not all) Rocco plastic ones in 1/87th scale. That makes them a smid
On eBay this week is another "downsizing of a DBM/FoG army" ADLG army sale, this time a nicely presented 200+ point 15mm Teutonic army including a wide range of options to form several different variations of this legendarily punchy force.All the figures have been based and magnabased for storage and transit, and have been double-varnished (Army Painter + Testors Dullcote) for tabletop handling.Here's the link to the auction which ends on Sunday 14th October, around 5pm UK timeThey are based with a snow effect, which on a bigger DBx army can seem a bit limiting by making it harder to do possible morphs into other forces - but with ADLG armies being smaller it's entirely feasible to have a dedicated Teutonic winter-war themed army like this as a stand-alone force.These guys were originally part of a much bigger DBM/FoG army now being downsized to ADLG, and the sharp-eyed amongst you may have even spotted some of them appearing on the Madaxeman website in several battle reports as part of the legendar
