ANCIENTS AND MEDIEVALS

 ANTIQUITY RETURNS AFTER 25 YEARS? MEDIEVALS MIGHT FINALLY COME TOO, AN OLD DREAM.

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.

Punic wars Wofun
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 initially bough the starter set, not the best idea. Analyse armies, lists, rules...THEN BUY;). Cost me three parcels, losing 38€ on extra postage.

.More mix of flats and 3D 15mm. it does not hurt, especially for skirmishers. You cannot do cavalry though this would  look weird. Close order would not work as the flats are 4 to 3 cm front, near impossible with 15mm.

A 3d general on a bigger base to stand out.Might do more but that means ordering from the Uk bits which has become uneconomic.
I chose to keep their bases, all my games are in house, "standarts" for clubs etc. who cares.

In any game where a unit is one base (or two one behind the other) one can easily put the figures in the middle of a 4cm wide standard base.
In that case you don't need to by their bases, saving 2.5€ per set.
Several 4 cm bases for a unit will have gaps, to me looking odd.
