I started off wanting something with the same general impact as this image (commercial resin), but four times as large: https://home...

Re: Artillery

Numidians are actually a tough army, with lots of fast troops and a possibility for a few heavy foot and an elephant :) Rod is correct -- Numidians can be very dangerous.

Re: Artillery

Where in Germany, Chris? My family spent a year in Germany when I was 12 (on Sabbatical) and we were enrolled in the German school system. We were near Giessen (Krofdorf-Gleiberg). I've visited Germany a half dozen times since.

Hi David!

Thank you very much for the swift and comprehensive answer.
Then we´ll keep waiting for the year to end. We are very much looking forward to this ruleset.
You're very welcome. For several reasons, I'm waiting for the year to end as well. None of them are about Triumph, though.
