Rummaging around in the storage area I found these figures. The Trojan War took less time to complete than this project! Literally. I started re-basing the figures yesterday. I’ve always loved these figures. I think most of them are Redoubt but there might be a few Foundry in there, too. It total, about 90 foot figures and three chariots. Roughly a third are painted but without weapons and shields. My completion rate is much, much better if I have a project, not just figures to paint. So what to do? Would this number of figures work for a Lion Rampant/Saga type game? Can anyone recommend a set of rules? I seem to recall something about ‘Pig Wars’ being a popular set for this time period….
(P.S., I’m also testing my new phone’s camera and the forum picture upload functions.)

What a coincidence; I’m painting my way through a DBA-sized Trojan army at the moment, having finished the Greeks a few months back. I’m thinking on using Hordes of the Things (HOTT) rules, limiting recoils to the number of figures on an element of two or more. There was a very good article on this in (I think) Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy (sic) a year or so ago, which had a really neat way of handling the role of the gods. Likely I’ll use Command and Colours cards rather than PIPs to direct play. That however is a little while away.
BTW, great looking figures
