Hellenic Greek hoplites, field commander and staff and cretan archers. This is for a fields of glory army. I like painting 15mm, and since there are so many, it looks awsome.

Those look great!

What system are you using DBx or FoG?

-CousinBorris

I’m Reading up on FoG at the moment. I don’t have a large enough army to actually field and nobody plays it at the club haha. but i’ll eventually build up two small armies and try to get others into it. i’m thinking of Galatians, or Egyptian… (im not focused on historical recreation or accuracy). otherwise i’m just loving the 15mm ancient models.

my next purchase will be some thuriophorei (sp?).  ^^

FoG is a nice system. I have a War of the Roses Yorkist and Alp Arslan Seljuk Turks.

You’ve got enough for DBA which is an awesome little system.  

I love how you have painted them all up much better than what I have pulled off.

-CousinBorris

i was told that DBA is a nice small scale-type game for quick 30 min fun. i do like the look of large armies though (since i play enough small scale/skirmisher type games already).

i would like to, eventually, get some 17-18th century armies too. (think empire total war i guess haha). but for now, i am liking the ancient models. nice and colourful. (also im playing rome2: total war…. so yeah haha).

15mm scale is awesome looking when amassing troopers. and when they are in such tight formation, with large shields… very appealing to the eye! :D

I’m trying to convince my gaming group to get into it haha. so far i am unsuccessful. but i am beginning to appeal to their heritage nationalism. so hopefully i can get some games in down the track and show off some ancient, albeit historical incorrect, battles :D

Privateer Press Warmachine/Hordes Khador vs. Trollblood 50 points
 continued

the totem hunter jumped into my back lines. fortunately it didn’t kill anything. but it did halt my advance and cover the advance of the fennblades. who, mind you, easily dispatched my outriders. with 1/5 of my army lost without any gain, i am immediately on the back foot.

the iron fang move up to hold my objective while the riflemen cover whatever they can along the crumbling flank. irusk sat in the middle supporting where he could.

stay tuned as the third quarter of this batrep continues. :D

Privateer Press Warmachine/hordes Khador vs. Trollblood 50 points

warcaster/warlock: pIrusk/Grim Agnus

here is the first 3rd of a battle. the objective, from memory, was to hold your flag while capturing your opponents. however, to capture your opponents you needed to destroy a marker (that would otherwise contest it).

here we see up to turn 2 ( i think). we aggressively advanced onto your objectives. i pushed my greylord outriders along the flank, my riflemen facing the fennblades and my heavy hitters up against he trollbloods high armor units.

at the beginning of turn two (which you will see in the next collection of pics) you will see the numerous mistakes i made along with the skillful placements and play my opponent used. however, you will also see how i fight to regain initiative.

Privateer Press Warmachine battle 50 points Khador vs. Trollblood

Casters/Locks: eSorscha/i forget but it is a troll on a bison

so no finished models lately. but here is a fully painted battle at my local club. i play with fully painted models, it looks better, therefore even if you lose, you lost looking fab.

my opponent also has this rule, so playing him makes good camera fodder.

anyway, enjoy. it was a trollblood victory via assassination. if the game went on, however, i believe the khador forces had the edge on the attrition war. but it was so close nobody could tell who was winning or going to win until the tree wielding troll smashed sorscha. :D
