And here they are in their "raw" form.
They've been removed from the laser cutter, sanded, and cleaned with compressed air.

Custom Cultural Markers

I've been working on some new cohesion markers (in between playtesting and real work). Thought I'd show you folks. I run an architectural model making shop ( http://www.monolitham.com/ ), and one of my machines is a powerful laser cutter/engraver. Yes, that's right. After a hard day at work of makin...

I have yet to see a game system that handles elephants in a perfect historical manner. The "spreading-out" as a line in front of the main battle line has never really worked. With an elephant per base, how many figures would you need to cover a pike line? For my preferred phalanx array, I'd need at ...

Nice work. I like these a lot.
I normally do 28mm, but I'm tempted sometimes.

Nice Elephants!

I have to say, the Elephants I just received from Aventine Miniatures http://www.aventineminiatures.co.uk/ are the nicest I've ever seen in 28mm. They are big, but not too big. They are also easy to assemble. They have a good mix and match system too, where you can get the crew you want for the righ...

I like your idea! Precedence has been set with the Regimental Guns rule in of FoG Renaissance.
No kidding? I haven't even read the rules for FoGR.
What I liked (about my own idea) is that it works within the existing system, rather than adding to it.

You know, I had an idea for light artillery while in the bathtub. Just call me Marat. They are a bit useless as is. If my assumption is correct, light artillery BGs in a roman army represent the all the army's artillery collected in one place, concentrated for mass fire. Well what if it was left wer...

Yes, you definitely can put 4 to a base. Some figures work better than others. The hoplites are easy if their spears are up. They are close enough together to have the shields touching/overlapping if desired. You just need to plan it out before you glue them down. I usually paint the figures after t...

Interesting case ShrubMik.

It makes me wonder, how many ancient/medieval commanders spent their time running around with the skirmishers?
I don't suppose it's very well documented.
Possibly for reasons resembling this case, they did not.

I'm still not sure what a "serious tournament player" is.

Is it someone who's too serious to be playing in tournaments?
Or someone who plays in tournaments that are too serious?

He he,
I'd be tempted to add that if the commander leaves a fragmented group, they'd have to roll a CT.

I think this is a pretty clever idea, with some nice historical flavour.
You might want limit the "mounted" qualification to only CAV and LH, and maybe Camelry.
Otherwise the all knight/chariot/elephant/cataphract armies might qualify, too. :wink:

Note this actually increases the Roman's advantage, as they win the impact combat 60% of the time. The barbarians thus end up suffering the penalty more often, and because they are generally not superior, are more likely to disrupt as a result. They are also significantly more likely to frag as a r...
