Immortal Fire

Post by Quintus » Fri Apr 25, 2008 3:20 pm

Just received my copy of Immortal Fire. It looks pretty good. I like the Early Successor list in particular - my favourite period. What is more I can even make an army out of it that will satisfy an old pedantic Pyrrhus enthusiast such as myself! :D

There are armies for widely differing tastes here. I look forward to seeing how popular the Lydian, Kyrenean and Egyptian armies will turn out to be, and I would be interested to see the various Persian armies in action.

Nice book.

I think Chris believes that by using the Early Successor list he will create an army closer to his view of what Pyrrhos' army was - good use of the lists IMO.

Spot on Nik!

I feel the urge to paint lots of pikemen again. :D (Mind you, they will have to join the queue behind the 1/72 Spanish, Romans and the 15mm Scots Islesmen. That's the not the least difficult bit with this hobby.)
