Ides of March

Had a hard day at the office when myself (Republican) and Dave (Early Imperial romans) came up against Bruces (Successor) and Andrews (Alexandrian)armies 5000 points per side, to put it bluntly we were thrashed, my Raw Hastati failed to stop the rolling pike blocks, my princeps done a good job holding them up and cutting them down to size but my folding flanks gave me my biggest challenge, the Successor Elephants and Bruces light infantry and warband ran down my light infantry and then dealt killer blows to my Trairii who stayed to die to the last man, my general did managed to cut down a few of the enemy and hold his princeps unit together, my cavalry were largly ineffective but did manage to knock out some of Bruces Indian archers.
Over on Daves table the thracian light infantry and warbands managed to knock the roman Auxillia for six, along with the ballista on the right flank, and on the left and centre the pike mostly just ground it out with the legionarys and eventually came out on top after some shocker rolls from Dave, the roman cavalry were no match for the companion cavalry and fled off the table taking the general (who had attached for the charge) and the army standard with them. So the romans decided to concede and raise another army for the next round!

Darkest Africa/ Pulp Warriors

These foundry figures were painted for our "up the Waa-Zooo" club pulp game for Feburary, I had such a great time painting these guys I almost bought a bunch of Marsi off foundry direct. I am not sure I will use these guys for some time so they will probaly make it onto the top shelf of the display cabinet.

Pulp Communist Zombies

Some pulp Communist Zombies sent to me by John Jenkins after I won the caption contest 4. I don't think they are available again as yet, I like the Zombie being choked by the balloon and the accordian player, they have sat on my painting desk for about six months before I just decided to finish them a few weeks ago for a pulp game!




Sassanid Kamândâr-î Payâhdag and Yarsan javelin.

Well life gets in the way some times and I have been painting a bunch but not taking any pictures so here are some of the latest minis off the desk. From the very fine A and A Sassanid range.
