|Mardian Archers - Wargames Factory, Vendel and Old Glory|
Here are a few photos of some Late Achaemenid Persian infantry. They are small units of skirmishers, Mardian archers (Wargames Factory, Vendel and Old Glory) and Takabara peltasts (Old Glory, Essex and Black Tree Designs). We're hoping to have a Satrapal Revolt game soon with two Late Persian armies, Satrap to Satrap, so I'll post some photos, a report and may even include the army lists.
This week in the mail I got a pack of the fantastic new plastic Victrix Athenian Hoplites which I've started to assemble. I'm really looking forward to painting these! I also got my copy of the new Hail Caesar Army Lists: Late Antiquity to Early Medieval these have sixty army lists ranging from Palmyran and Middle Imperial Roman through to Teutonic Crusader and Mongol. As you'd expect from Warlord Games, this is a pretty classy supplement full of great photos.
Recently I downloaded Dr Phil Hendry's Augustus to Aurelian rules from the Too Fat Lardies site. These look like a really interesting and innovative set of ancient rules - TFL with elements of HC. Obviously a lot of care, thought and knowledge has gone it to it and it is a beautifully illustrated and amazingly good value for 12 pounds or $20 AUD!
