I have been gaming since school, moving from historical figures gaming through role playing and back again. I decided to Blog after being persuaded by some friends that it's time I joined the digital age properly. The plan is to showcase various goings-on in my gaming life and keep it updated as much as I possibly can, barring work and real life.
Last month, I fully renovated and rebased 64 old Lamming Italian Infantry. This month, the plan is twofold. First, to paint from scratch a couple of command figures and a dozen cavalry for my Republican Romans (1st Corps). Second, a money-saver. It looks as though the club's annual big game will be Magnesia. I will need 10 scythed chariots for that in total, and I already have 4 old Essex ones from my Pontic army. It seems a bit of a waste of money to buy another 6. I can't think of another occasion I'd need that many, so I'm going to economise by making 5 large sabot bases. Scythed chariots (or elephants for other games) could just slot into these. This means I'd only need to borrow one chariot for Magnesia, and I'm pretty sure that Simon or Willie would have one that's useable. If I manage to complete anything else in addition, that will be a bonus.
