ANTIQUITY RETURNS AFTER 25 YEARS?

First I was planning to play Impetus (which I might too) then became fascinated by the clever set Mortem et Gloriam. in waiting, bit might be used anyway (command+)The Perfect Captain free medieval (crusades and 1XIIIth cty). I had republican romans, mongols, Hundred Years War both sides, all long sold.

I still have several hundreds of unpainted medieval minis in waiting, very few painted. I used to play DBM last century then dropped it, too much "championship" not enough history and I grew tired. Not so sure I am up to painting properly the medieval heraldry though.

Considering the costs and painting time to get another old dream back, the Punic wars, Wofun opportunely got a full set designed by the excellent Peter Dennis. Flat figures? hummm.

I got a few, used for markers and dummies for other periods. Ancient battles would be mostly frontal, the weird looking flat side should not be such a trouble.

The whole thing half done. The Romans in the front do not have their sides painted. The shiny plastic of the sides does give them more luminosity of sorts, but I don't like shiny minis.

And now you see the sides painted (grey for the Romans, a ww2 types of dark grey green for those allies who can be with either sides, brownish for the Carthaginians.. It does no hurt the eyes no?

I reused some 3d "normal" 15mm as not enough light infantry. I also like the "dirpersed" chaps to be, well slightly dispersed?
I initially bough the starter set, not the best idea. Analyse armies, lists, rules...THEN BUY;). Cost me three parcels, losing 38€ on extra postage.

Why Mortem et Gloriam?
Go on the creator's site, you will have plenty to figure out! this video gives a first good idea of it. The author is a great guy, he answers your questions (patiently) .
The system is quite flexible, so period mods or specific armies variations, (but obviously not for championships or the like) are possible.  

More later...
