Russians- who cares if it's not a winner, the imagery is fantastic-I'm amazed GW didn't go down this road for their Kislevites rather than the Renaisance Poles.
Those Old Glory Russian militia -one of their best sets.

Just get them to fight each other or do some raiding north of the border!!
Romans legions- the games up lads-( ok so Colchester took a pasting)
Also don't forget that Airfix chariots would be classed as heavy on account of those solid wheels- surely.

I think Mini FOG is an excellent idea (especially as my elements are 90mm wide!)
I suppose it would make warband armies a bit more nippy if they were going around in BGs of 4 or 6. Would Romans work with 2 element BGs?

Top fun- my wife found me doing this and went on her way mumbling "how sad". She's now just passed by saying-"you're not still doing your silly crossword"
It was all worth it-I got 9%- result!! ( I got a book about Hadrian upstairs, perhaps I'd better read it.)

This is where I have decided to enter into the FOG thing. I'm starting with Nevski's Russians, in 28mm, and may progress next to Lithuanians and Prussians.
So yes- will there be a book? ( I seem to remember there are later Russians in the Ottoman book??)

My father in law was in a nasty situation with two, angry bull elephants in Africa years ago. They were 20 feet away and pretty fired up as lions had taken one of the baby elephants. I'll ask him but I don't think a few blokes in a tower would have increased the fear of trampling factor! These were ...

I can imagine one lot of Romans looking at another lot in a civil war situation and thinking " oh not not these guys, it's going to be bad-remember that bad night out in Ostia?"

Its given me the idea that I'll do some infantry size bases with a foot commander on to substitute when fighting in the front rank. I'm toying with round bases for the actual command bases.

Early Russians

FOG- this calls for a brand new army in 28mm. I'm going to put together a Russian army of the Alexander Nevski era- always loved that old Minifigs range from the 70's but never managed to get any. Now there's Mirliton, Molynia (later I know but lovely), OG and the new Gripping Beast stuff. Is there ...

I rather hoped I'd be taking my new FOG to Spain with me next week to sit on the beach -I'm going to have to take HOTT instead- I've had that years and i still enjoy nosing through it. Hey maybe I'll be able to pick up a copy at the airport- wouldn't that be a hoot!

I've got this image of all these archers shouldering their way to the front and then coming back through ( excuse me- excuse me etc...) I think I'd be much happier standing at the back loosing off arrows with several ranks of 'security ' between me and the enemy. Perhaps they'd leave a gap for me!
