Since we are all so stupid then this is all that should be put on the sheet. An explanation can be added for those of intellect enough to figure it out. http://i329.photobucket.com/albums/l384/philqw78/score-3.jpg ... and that man wins a coconut!

Re: Light Horse Lancers, MF & Camelry Archers - Any Good

I'm almost at the point of completing my 28mm Arabs (Conquest/Umayyad) and before I complete the basing, I was wondering how useful some of my troops are. ... I've got camelry to spare. Apart from being relatively cheap, what use are camel archers? Unusually for the Arabs they have zero close comba...

Hi Hammy I should be with guthroth (Pete) but am struggling to speak to him. I also wouldn't possess an army to enter on my own. I'll wait for the R&R to see if we are there. Rob There is at least one army that is currently short one player (mine (actually it's borrowed)) , so if you turn up you sh...

Wars of the Roses : Town and Country Militia

Getting to grips with a shed-load of Perry WotR plastics, how would the dress of Town & Country militia differ from the retinue troops. I can see that they would be less well armoured, which is fine, as the sprues offer a wide variety of choices for armour (including no armour), but I am unsure abou...

Expect Perrytastic English longbowmen and lots of them. Or maybe that's just me.

Wallachian Armoured Cavalry with Spear+ Bow*

There are several sources for Wallachian cavalry, but the armoured types all seem to be portrayed without bows. They're fine as Moldavian knights, but the Wallachian boyars, armoured, light spear, bow* thus present a bit of a problem. Any ideas? Maybe the Oddzial Lithuanians?

Joins the chorus ... "I bought a couple of these" .. The trader was at Partizan last weekend, but I too cannot remember the name. They had the winged bull statues in both 15mm and 25mm scale, as well as some vaguely Lovecraftian Elder God types. None of the trader links on the Partizan site show any...

Thureophoroi Shield Patterns

Having adopted the big oval shield for thureophoroi, how did hellenistic troops decorate them? What have other people done? Galllic shield patterns seem to be typically bilaterally symmetric, with the axis running down the central rib, but are also full of baroque curly motifs, not quite the Helleni...

Posing Pikemen

I'm quite impressed by the visual effect of a pike block with the sarrissas sloping forward. They look like they mean business. However, the Xyston phalangites I'm ever-so-slowly preparing and painting are all of the vertical at-rest variety. How do other manufacturers compare in 15mm? (probably sma...

Thracian standard bearers

I'm looking at incorporating standard bearers, officers and musicians into battle groups in my still-under-construction Macedonian Successor army. If I have it correctly, Hellenistic phalanxes did not employ unit banners or standards, but they were used by looser formations as a rallying point, so i...
