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 done this before, when I needed casualty markers for my Republican Romans for Zama. Nobody at that time made plastic Republicans, so I used Wargames Factory plastics and cut the bases off them. The good thing about that is I can use them for this project as well. I reckon I'll need five for each legion, so that means I already have enough for four legions - two with red shield designs and two with white. The guys in the photo above are for the Alaudae, who have blank red shields so that I can also use them as auxiliaries. The notches are for my home made clock-face dials. The running total for this year now stands at 296 foot; 105 cavalry; and seven elephants with riders.
