Nice, I like to see Sassanids in action. Looks like the Late Roman player needs some Palmyran allied support, forget the Goths. Fight Cat with Cat.

I'll have to order a copy since I've got Sassanid Persians and Late Imperial Romans. I guess both lists are in that book. I might have to wait for 'Decline and Fall' for the Late Imperial Romans circa 6th Century AD. If by Late Imperial Romans you mean Early Byzantines then yes. Late Roman (Dominat...

I saw the movie "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" a few years ego which gave me interest into collecting an Ottoman Empire army. I'm so happy they will be covered in the new book coming out. I collected Late Romans when the group I was playing with were playing Palmyrian versus Sassanid games. I ...

The smaller the army points the shorter the games tend to be. It could be an advantage if the have very little time to play.

I wonder if you can do different types of Ottoman armies like a Janissary host or an army of nomadic horse archers with local vassels.

If you are going for a Central or Southern African skin color, you can mix black with purple as the base coat and then dry brush different shades of brown. I learned this when I had painted a Zulu army many years ego.

Nice to see you again, sorry about the late reply. I think great minds think alike! It's to bad you didn't stay in Tucson. Are you playing FoG in 25mm or 15mm?

I'm a fairly new with FoG, I come from the WAB camp. My armies are already based. Has anyone here tried making movement trays for conversion to the FoG format? Any recomendations on the pros and cons. I'd like to avoid any pitfalls before I start this massive project.

I prefer to mount 25mm figures before I paint. I just don't like getting any terrain material I use when basing on figures I've spent a bit of time painting.
