Shooting, formations, artillery - Questions and thoughts

Salutations, gentlefolk ! In pre-gunpowder combat, a unit good in combat is likely to be a unit that puts the maximum number of men with sharp pointy objects into a given frontage. The drawback is that such a unit is easier to hit with missle weapons, and a casualty from bow or ballista more likely ...

Salutations, gentlefolk !

Painted Old Glory Early German warriors along Forged in Battle figures in bare metal.

This is the last *%^&*%&^* time I try to photograph figures not attached to bases or 'dop sticks'

Hints on photographing 'shiny bare metal figures' welcome

Dyspeptically yours, John

Rules organization and layout, thoughts

Salutations, gentlefolk ! I have a bunch of gamer friends. They have settled Catan, colonized Puerto Rico, terraformed Mars, and bid for the Camden & Amboy - but have never gamed Ancients with miniatures. How to get them started ??? So, a decade ago, I put together the 'Gelidis'* rules (which probab...

Re: Blue Moon 15mm

Salutations, gentlefolk ! Good question. I tend to get my lead at conventions - if everything I want is where I can "see it, buy it, carry it home", why pay shipping ? Would have gotten some Blue Moon figs if dealer there stocked them (experimental funds) So have nothing really to say, just babbling...

Re: Forged in Battle figures

Salutations, gentlefolk ! Had seen the Forged in Battle figures in 'army packs' at Maplewood Hobby. Saw them at Cold Wars and decided to check them out. Picked up a package of 'WE-GE4 German Warband #2, Javelin/Shield incld Command' from Hobby Bunker. Just took some out of package, compared them to ...

Re: Possible Weekend Event in PA

Would mention that 4/29 is the Miniature Figure Collectors of America show - mfcashow.com - in Trevose. Would like to get to that. Also that my friend...
