Byzantine Akontistai and Menavlatoi

Does anyone have a source for what the Akontistai (light foot) of the Nikephorian Byzantines would look like? Or who makes foot figures that would work for those, compatible with Essex Byzantines (who form the rest of my Nikkie Byz army)? ADA figures 7 and 17 (mostly 17) seem the most useful -- dude...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Late Imperial Roman East list begins in 325, but Constantine is available with a better manoeuvre rating from 324. (Also, as previously pointed out, Constantius' manoeuvre rating is the same as the normal one, so at least one of the numbers is wrong - guessing that the normal one should be 3, s...

Re: Battle of the Lonely Mountain -- Map

Finished map.

Not completely finished -- I haven't got time to do the water effects in the river and the ruined bridges across it, and some minor stuff in Dale (foliage fighting with the ruins). But good enough to run the game (tomorrow?)

Re: Battle of the Lonely Mountain -- Map

Stage 12: Flocking. I use a mix of 1 part water to 2 parts white glue, brush it on fairly completely, then let it bead up a bit (three or four minutes) to give it an organic look and emphasize the texture and shaping of the painted and drybrushed caulk. Let it dry completely (24 hours if you have it...

I'm not sure if you intended it, but this thread has proven to be a great tutorial David. Kudos to you.

Re: Battle of the Lonely Mountain -- Map

That Gate looks awesome! Where is that from? A mix of out-of-print WETA bookends (the two Dwarven monuments on the sides), Ral Partha 1970s era pewter "Dwarven Coins" (the hammer and anvil carvings), plywood (the backer), and pink foam insulation (everything else). Here's some finished pictures (af...
