Nah, I knew about that.. wasnt planning to have them charge through the lights, was planning to have the lights retreat through them and then to let them charge. When my opponent finally tries to run them down after getting peppered with the arrows. No real MF options available to the list. I can ad...

Komnenan Byzantine - 800pt

If there is a search feature, I cant find it. Cant even pull up posts based on user (a "find all posts by..." on your user profile). Looks like I might have some extra time in the coming months, and figured I should get working on my Byzantines. First, I will list what I own, then what I am proposin...

I have found movement trays to be absolutely necessary. Its a pain in the ass to try and wheel a BG without them. Just regular movement takes longer than it should beacuse you cant just move them forward as a whole, you have to move one, then another, then another. Having a tray you can just push fo...

That sounds like what I was thinking of.. a solid base with foam glued to that, then shaved down.

Might try those later if the straight foam ones dont cut it.

Storage I have taken care of. I meant for in-game movement trays? Does anyone use them? So that you can keep units together? For Warhammer I made them out of balsa wood, but that was pretty bulky. I was thinking of using plasti card with that magnetic stuff glued to it, in different shapes and sizes...

Ah, that helps. We have a few stationary supply stores in town, I will check there first.

Do you just cut out the shape of the unit with the paper, and then what do you attach the paper to?

Very nice, I will try using a hobby knife for some of the hills.

Do you have a picture of it?

Currently we are using felt for almost everything. The gully is a hunk of green felt with the 'edge' of the gully drawn on.

Magnetic Bases

Where can I find sheet magnets thin enough to use them in movement trays? I have found some at Hobby Lobby, but they are only 3/4" wide and pretty thick. I use them in my carry case, but was wondering what other options there were.

All of my models have metal bases.

I will try one of each.

How do people represent it in games usually?

How about other 'odd' terrain, like gullies?

Hills

Working on making some hills out of some styrofoam using a hot wire. Cut what look to be 'hill like' formations, but not sure what to do with them now. I wanted them set up so that it was possible to have models on them without them sliding off, so they are not too terribly steep. The guy at Hobby T...

Good points, I am just going to put it together and play against my friend, who also takes a "the hell with 'effective' lets play and have fun" attitude.

I will post all of what I own later on, see if I can make something worthwhile out of it. To be honest, I picked up this army because I like the period and figured it would make for a good FoG army. As it turns out, if I end up having to buy more stuff to make it playable in FoG, I probably wont bot...

Oh, ok. Like I said, I was under the impression that 750 was standard in the US. We are using a 3'x5' table, and didnt want to have too much stuff on it.

That being said, I will modify the list for 800pts and repost it.

I was under the impression that 750 was a fairly standard point level. Of course, that number does change a bit depending on who you ask, I suppose. 500pts seemed too small for our group, but 1000pts seemed too big. 750 sounded like the best of both, and like I said, I thought it was fairly common. ...

Currently assembling and painting my first FoG list. Wanted to submit it here, so I know if I am focusing on the right units.
