    I completed my Ostrogoth army for Impetus/Sword and Spear this week – and joined The Wargames Website.  I have never been a prolific poster on any forum but I want to “put my pics where my mouth is” and show some support for the new forum. Good luck.

    The minis are an eclectic bunch mostly acquired as “bargains”. While I have built an army nominally as Ostrogoths they will do service in other dark age armies – my command base looks very Arthurian …

    Splendid stuff, a great mix of figures imaginatively based. Really like the one with the poor chap being run down by the Huns.

    Very impressive. I love the mix of figures and the basing. I wish I had the courage to use Impetus basing.

    The fourth picture down has a Sassanid figure, is that Essex?

    Thanks everyone. I like diorama bases because my figures usually spend more time in the cabinet than on the table! I like seeing the”massed ranks” other can put on a table but I have enough trouble painting the 5 – 7 I put on a big base …

    Huber – yes it is a Sassanid figure but made by Eureka miniatures as part of their small Dark age range. The Ostrogoths negotiated with the Sassanids during the Gothic war to open a new front against Justinian so maybe this is a Sassanid “advisor”.
