    I suspect you might get a good game working back from the Marlburian amendments to Honours of War.  Pure supposition on my part.

    I’m currently awaiting the release of Brent Oman’s Give Fire rules for the ECW.

    Pikeman’s Lament is a load of fun and it is easy enough to create the stats for mixed poke and shot units.

    Xyston, which aren’t included in Aaron’s line up shown above, tend to bigger and even bigger than any of the figures shown.  I have some of their Persians which are fine on separate bases with the rest.  Their later ranges are mainly much bigger.

    Thank you very much Rhys. I glad you found it useful.  I’m still learning-for example- you cannot file Green Stuff so best be sparing and get it right first time.  You can add to it and work it wet.  Other beginners insights will be in my next blog.

    My first unit of Algernon Percy’s Bill Men is nearly complete.  It was mostly done with Milliput.  Some French and Border Horse will be next. Also I’ve started on some shields.

    Thanks Rhys.  Mike told me to get some Green Stuff so I did.  I have now used some and in many ways its so much easier than Milliput.  I also found it much faster to apply.  I think you should give it a go and good luck with it.

    I’ll be doing a few blogs that might be of interest on all this as I go so I’ll post them on TWW under Blogs.

    I should have added Rex Warner Imperial Caesar, two books sold as one and absolutely magnificent.  Caesar speaks to us directly and it’s very believable.

    Conversion mania here.  Milliput and Green Stuff everywhere.  Three figures completed so far so this is going to be the slowest project ever.  I’m enjoying it though.

    Alfred Duggan Winter Quarters is a splendid read.  It begins in Gaul and follows the story of two Gallic nobles who end up in Parthia with Crassus.

    Thanks Ian.  I do have a few reference books and the internet is great too.

    Cerdic, it had to be done.  I had voices, like St Joan, saying just paint three salmon in a ragged row but no bigger than 3mm each mind.

    I’m impressed by the paper heraldry William.

    Yes, there are a fair few things I won’t game.  That said I’m under no illusions about the reality of the stuff I do game.  I guess we each go with what we’re comfortable with and interested in.

    I liked Norm’s points above.

    The stats for the Libyans for Myceneaen Lion Rampant are now up on my blog.  There are some pics too.

    The figures are all Black Hat 15s.

    I might just change the hair colour on some of these to lighter brown or even fair.  Anyhow here is the link.

    Thanks Mike.  The rules are great and very affordable.  I’d say a game could look pretty impressive in 6mm, a real sense of mass.

    Happy to Victoria. I’m working through the stats for Mycenaean, Hittite, Sea Peoples and Libyan Retinues.  I’ll post them as each is completed.  The figures are mostly done.

    I like the idea of the Tatars as Dragoons, maybe the mounted Azabs too, but inferior ones.

    I think I’ll be re-basing too.

    You could make Janissaries veteran shot but with no close order capability. Or even Folorn Hope.  Arnauts commanded shot.  Iarlars clansmen.  Foot Azabs clubmen.  Spahis of the Porte aggressive gallopers, feudal Spahis inferior ones. Tatars and mounted Azabs trotters and inferior trotters.

    I have a bunch of under employed Turks too let us know how you get on and the catergories you decide on.

    Yes, they are and I’ll probably buy a few more packs.  I wanted as much variety as possible. Also while the MY Miniatures horses are fine for Dragoons they are a bit small for my idea of cavalry horses for this period. More or less I’ll use the MYs for Monmouth’s men and the Donnington’s for the King’s.
