My 3mm scale Elvish army is starting to take a serious shape. I have colors that work well and a basing scheme I’m very happy with. Rules are, as appropriate, Mayhem and Dragon Rampant. I’m even looking to prepare a nice campaign map using Inkarnate or some such, and some metal coins for amassing fortunes (and buying armies!)
I even have, for the first time, a nice, sizeable gaming space in the making. So here goes nothing!29/01/2021 at 20:02 #150260ian pillayParticipant
Amazing brush work! I wouldn’t have guessed they are 3mm. Can’t wait to see more photos as they come off the work bench.

I like the archer’s formation, a shame it does’t show as well on teh cavalry. Those birds look really good, nice feather detail.
Tired is enough.

Like I’ve said elsewhere, Mat, you’re making me want to rebase everything I have done,
We get slapped around, but we have a good time!31/01/2021 at 16:38 #150309
Hah! You guys flatter me. Thaddeus, you are the reason I’ve begun working up my armies so seriously! I was previously mainly a sci fi player but boy this Microworld line is just so excellent!
Incidentally – since you’ve worked with the O8 ancients, how do you think they would work as human locals? Part of the campaign is that Tanithite forces may be compelled to occupy Human settlements if the March Barons refuse to let them pass as they fight the Orc Stain; or conversely, they may sally forth to fight the common enemy – or even fight alongside the hated Orc if they were of a suitably deranged frame of mind. Thought some suitably painted Romans and Germanic Nobles might work as a simplified, generic Human force to cause trouble as the real action plays. Do they scale well with each other?01/02/2021 at 11:14 #150336
They scale VERY well with each other. If fact, I made my eagle riders into Romans and bought some Microworld beastmen to use as Roman minotaurs, just to give the Romans a fantasy twist. The Gauls and Hermans work great as barbarians.

Man that’s looking great Matt!

Thanks, DS! It’s feeling very much like what I had always wanted old school games to offer – big, epic battles on a sweeping scale, even though in reality medieval warfare was small scale and of limited aims.
And that’s great to hear, Thaddeus! I will arm my humans in the Roman fashion, so they can make trouble for my main forces.
And speaking of old school for some reason the rerelease of The Fantasy Trip from SJ Games passed me by – the perfect opportunity for side adventures for money and magical items to assist in the battle against the Orc-Czar!02/02/2021 at 03:36 #150362
🙂 I am getting into Oathmark for “small” medieval battles. My first 28mm project in a quarter century.
