    Returning to L’Art de la Guerre after a hiatus of a couple of months, it was a with great enthusiasm that I took the role of a youthful Antiochos III defending the Seleukid Empire from Andrew’s Parthian incursion (c.210 BC).

    There is a full write up and loads of photos on the blog. –> http://irregularwars.blogspot.com/2020/08/seleukids-vs-parthians-6mm-lart-de-la.html

    My first honest reaction is….AAARGH!

    Despite the temptation of 6mm, I went for 15mm for the big three Successor kingdoms (Macedonia, Seleucid and Ptolemaic) as Forged in Battle had just offered a great kickstarter for that very period.  And I was happy with that.

    Then along comes comes your post, showing magnificent figures, and demonstrating the advantages of 6mm.   Cavalry in wedges, a true elephant corps, masses of deep pike phalanxes.  Really makes you feel like you’re commanding an army.

    I am now trying desperately not to head to Baccus’ website…

    Excellent battle report and lovely miniatures. I’ve always been fascinated by the Parthians ever since the first Rome Total War game came out!

    Haha! Yes, it is funny how inspiration gets crosspollinated. I’ve no real interest in the new Troy Total War computer game, but it’s an understatement to say I’ve been hankering to get my Minoans on the table ever since the computer game came out!

    The Forged in Battle stuff does look great. However, as you say, I love the mass effect of smaller scales. I’ve played loads of 15mm in the past, but for big battles, I am a firm believer in 6mm or 10mm these days.
