Yi Dynasty (Joseon) Koreans

I invite the community to follow my first Triumph painting project, a Yi Dynasty (Joseon) Korean army using the relatively new Essex 15mm Late 16th C. Korean range. Apologies in advance for what will inevitably be a long drawn out project. Blogsite ink at: https://fanatichris.wordpress.com/2020/08/0...

Re: Asymmetrical Battles

Asymmetrical battles would be typical of campaign-style gaming, where armies carry losses from preceding battles, can add allies, and/or recruit up loses between battles, depending on how much territory you still controlled. You can also end up with slightly asymmetrical armies through several of th...

Re: Nepalese

I found one obscure source online that suggested Medieval Nepalese kings/princes (and there were 27 of them at one point) had standing forces of elephant riders, horse riders and footmen, but when the home turf was threatened, that most of their army would be comprised of a feudal mobilization of al...

Picowar 3mm Ancients

So anyone interested in doing Triumph with elements using figures at 1:1 scale, take note. Picowar has released its first range of 3mm ancients...described as Germanic, but at that scale and with mostly round shields, could cover many army types. Check them out at http://theminiaturespage.com/news/?...

Re: Plastic Soldier Company 15mm Plastic Ancients

More news from PSC. They have apparently licensed and will be reintroducing the much loved Corvus Belli ranges of 15mm ancients in both plastic and eventually metal according to their posting at TMP.

Tupi List Enemies

Just a note that the Tupi list needs at least one enemy, which would presumably be other Tupi in inter-tribal warfare.

Would be neat if there was also a Portuguese Conquest list for the overlapping period of 1500-1580, or at least during the first Governor-General's reign of 1549-1553.

Musasir

Within the Urartian list in Meshwesh, there is an option for an allied contingent of Musasirians, which was a new group to me, so I turned to Google and learned that Musasir was the name of a Mannean (temple)(city)(kingdom) located on the banks of the Great Zab river between Lakes Van and Urmial tha...
