The light infantry and bowmen are Old Glory 15s with a few Essex thrown in. The Egyptian spear are Xyston. Lovely figures, but the shields are huge!
Anyway, the upshot is that I should be able to play some Phalanx or Commands & Colors scenarios soon.
I'm now working on painting up some useful bits and pieces: 16 Gauls, 4 Carthaginian heavy chariots (thanks Jonathan!) and 25 Dark Age types (thanks, Aaron!).
On another scale entirely, a bit of progress has also been lately made on my What a Tanker! project. Some 1/72 kits are now primed, have had their base colours done, and are awaiting some spare space on the painting table.
Last but not least, an Aussie guy whose eldest boy started at the same school our kids go to and who lives just up the road from us came round the other day for a drink and a game.
He's a video gamer, but seemed to enjoy a hastily put-together Commands & Colors scenario. He processed the rules really well, has good strategic sense, and quickly got the hang of a number of the tactical nuances.
He's a top guy too, so it's very nice to have him in the neighbourhood.
Hopefully he'll be available to join in next time we have a big game day.
