28mm Successors WIP
Hi Guys, started working on 28mm miniatures for a change of pace. The figures are Foundry Ancients - Macedonians range. Foundry miniatures are great sculpts and some what easy/quick to paint up.... Also have 28mm Crusader Miniatures: 120 Macedonian figures plus 120 Greeks (Hoplites/light infantry) all these are awaiting to be primed etc...Thinking of placing lesser armor pikemen figures in the rear and heavy armor up front...The idea is to put a few Successor armies together and play using Basic Impetvs, Too the Strongest and maybe even Hail Caesar rules sets....or , dare I say it, *boring* DBA :oP
... umm..hmm.. how to base the figures?
Frontage 40mm x 40mm base with 4 figures (2 front x 2 rear) (Hail Caesar rules?)
Frontage 60mm x 40mm base with 6 figures (3 x 3) (2 stands make up one unit for Impetvs and TTS)
Frontage 30mm x 40mm (2 x 2) (4 stands to represent a unit for Commands and Colors Ancients?) This idea requires large hexes i.e. 5 inch hexes for units to fit in?....back to painting cheers!
