Re: Naffatun

I have some naffatun figures that need painting up, and was wondering would the armour they are in be padded cotton type, or mail ? The casting seems to fit either. Cheers Personally, I'd be tempted to paint up at least one German WWII (Flames of War) with potatoe masher like this: http://gadabyte....

just an extra thought, I saw an artists concept where the inside of the elephants ears were painted red to add a more frightening appeaerance, not that a big mass of bronze armour coming at you wouldn't make you weakin the knees to begin with. I just had a visual of a B52 painted red because it's m...

I do declare them as I put them down but when your opponent describes lots of different troops you can sometimes loose track of whats what. So I was interested in whether people found it easier to see the difference with base size or figure count. I know MF can be 4/stand but I've never seen that d...

if you're looking at a 28mm figure and can't tell what it is? then it's either a crap paint job or your opponent has conducted an awkward morph... I was thinking more along the lines of something like hoplites could be either MF or HF and your opponent not being able to tell which they are rather t...

Australian / NSW FoG players:

Hello all,

I've created a new poll on the Oz_FoG Yahoo group to determine the practicality of running a themed comp at MOAB 2010.

Please, if you're remotely interested in playing MOAB 2010 please fill in the poll to help organise a fun comp.

Thanks

At Raphaia the elephants on both sides were escorted by Cretans and Neo-Cretans. The Seleucids usually had about 40 to 50 men escorting each elephant. Armies of the Macedonian and Punic wars has both the Seleucid and Ptolemy elephants on the cover. They both have a javelinman and a pikeman in the t...

Macedonian/Successor Elephants

Hi All, I'm busy painting up my Elephants. The ones I got have a tower and come with 2 pike guys and a mahout. Far from being an expert in all things war elephant, I'm wondering if my memory is faulty or accurate. From memory I thought they often had some pike guys along with some bowmen. Is this co...

Armour is given as "average". Obviously it was meant to be in the Quality column as the points given match.
Maybe the armour is of average quality :?: :lol:

Re: Late 15th Century Samurai

what about AVERAGE cats? (a oddness of the graeco-bactrian list)... You could save many points in order to buy some more cats... Hmm, have to hash some numbers... but that's a good point as they will be almost as good as Superior when fighting Knights - the majority of which will be done by the Ele...

I would primarily see pairing mounted and elephants in a battle line as useful for fighting other mounted, not against foot. But I'm not sure what the original poster had in mind for the original question. For my last Later Seleucid list for a battle aginst MRR, I deicded another BG of 8 avg pikes ...

Simples.
Actually, I don't think it's that 'simple' at all. Since it was in the 'optional' list, I assumed it was a typo where the list creators missed the '0-' rather than a typo of it being entirely in the wrong part of the list.
