I was at Senlac Hill in 2000 at the big hastings reenactment, and I have to tell you Senlac Hill is bloody steep, it doesnt look like it when you start up it but by half way it really starts to take its toll, I was a Saxon that day so I didnt have to go up it in armour thank god, but I can imagine w...

Concur, Paul. Why is it that no one likes Byzantium? Oh, yeah... Gibbon. He has a lot to answer for. Darn that 18th C. classicist, anyway. How about "How the Last Romans saved Civilization" Chris Cameron, who plays Komnenan in various other rules... For me it was the thought of having to paint all ...

Intersting lists Not sure about the Saxon peasent spearmen being undrilled, from my experience all armies at that time would have been able to form shieldwalls, so I am not sure under the rules if that counts them being drilled or not , I have only got the rules so slowly reading through them, but t...

A friend of mine got some of the 3mm bases from Litko and they are very good, they do seem very thick though, maybe its because I've used the thin ones for my 6mm armies that it looks too thick

I did buy some thin wire but it was far too thick for the Hat Macedonian, anything thinner and I am worried it will sag, and look silly, I am going to have a long think about this one, as for Carthaginians any army with Elephants as my vote, they just look so pretty!

I was thinking of doing up some army lists based on the Bernard Cornwell trilogy, best Arthur stories out there I think, not sure what it would contain at the minute, but lots of Shieldwalls and a little Cav

All the bases I own at the minute are 60x30 by Litko and are very strong, so I suppose the reasoning follows 40x15 etc should be even stronger

I have lots of Litko bases, there all 2mm, and they look fine and sturdy, I always hated thick bases, so I always go for the thinnest I can get away with, I used to use Plasticard, but couldnt be bothered trying to cut it anymore, especially with the Litko stuff being so good
