Re: Dudes throwing rocks

Peter Pig's Ancients range has a code of peasant's throwing rocks whose tunics could pass for medievals if you paint on the trousers. Range 3, Code 26 at: http://peterpig.co.uk/ancients.html

Re: Making the map for Pelennor Field

Almost every picture I was able to scan shows Pelennor Fields as being flat and featureless...bound on one side by Minas Tirith and the mountains and surrounded by the large ancient walls (Rammas Echor) and the Anduin river beyond. There seems to be a raised causeway from Minas Tirith across the fie...

Khurasan 15mm Late 14th Century Range

Available so far are several codes of men-at-arms in jupons with one-handed and two-handed weapons, English longbowmen, pavisiers, crossbowmen...

Celtic Rabble

The Warlike and Sedentary Gallic and the Ancient British lists both field several elements of Rabble, described in Triumph! as "Poorly equipped and trained bowmen, slingers, and unshielded javelinmen." These are the same skirmishers classed as psiloi in the DBA list. While working on translating my ...

Kingdom of Sealand (Iraq - 1730-1460 BCE)

Found this interesting archaelogy item on the Kingdom of Sealand in area of modern Iraq, a foe of the Babylonians circa 1730-1460 BCE. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/sep/01/castle-sealand-kings-ancient-iraqs-rebel-rulers Not sure where (or even if) they fit in any of the existing Triumph l...

Re: First impressions of Triumph!

Great to meet you in person Paul and a fun day all around. Hope we can do it again some day. In the meantime, I'll get to work on that Sumerian pitch to Eureka we discussed.

Basing of Rabble

I'm currently working out what figures I need to add to my various armies to make them Triumph compliant, and probably the most common addition required so far is Rabble, which are based 3 figures to a 20mm deep base. I know they're classified as light troops fighting in open order but as a group......

Re: Suggestions for My Next Project are sought

"...my pile of unpainted lead will supply the complete army list for the Sui/Tang Chinese.."

Always good to use the figures you have...but Murphy's Law prevails in that Essex has just updated/reissued their range of Sui/Tang.

Khurasan 15mm Gasgan (Kaska) range

Not sure how long this range has been out, but just noticed the addition of a Gasgan (Kaska) range to Khurasan's 15mm historical offerings. Range consists of mixed warband (which can be used with shields as Triumph raiders, warriors or warband and without shield as rabble), plus chariot nobles, arch...
