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.
I've been quite busy painting away while Cathy has been in New York:
These are the archer figures I have been intending to add to the armoured spearmen I've already painted.
I do enjoy painting them, and they look nice and bright when finished. But all those stripes are rather time-consuming!
They make a nice change from Romans and Hoplites, though...
The figures are by Foundry.
Here is the completed unit of 36, together with shield barricade.
And another shot, from the gamer's perspective. I already have another load of archers to add to the unarmoured spearmen, which will give me a unit of spara types as my token contribution to the Persian forces at Plataea. My running total for this year is now 195 25/28mm figures finished. I'm hoping to get to around 500-600 if I can. I think I'll manage because I have five units of partly worked Garrison hoplites to finish, plus whatever else I manage.
