Re: Beginner - bit stumped from the very offset

I watched some videos on youtube, bought the rule book, read it and it seems like great fun .... BUT .... I don’t have any armies so I need to build up from scratch and this is where I am a bit stumped. I’ve not decided on a period so let’s just pick the first one, The French Indian War For the Bri...

Re: Always getting logged out

Some links on the forum go between HTTPS and HTTP though you won't necessarily notice anything different other than being logged out. What's actually happening is that the session cookie belongs to one or the other and each time you switch to the opposite your session isn't picked up. Best to try an...

Re: British First World War infantry in 15mm

I can't find the battlefront great war platoons anywhere, were they a recent purchase?

Re: I’ve opted for the all auxiliary force...

'over-egged' ? No such thing for a wargamer... You'll find a use for all those figures someday ;) OK I take it back, I ended up with a sprue of auxilia, a sprue of aux cavalry and an unopened pack of balaeric slingers spare, I decided against those in the end. This little lot is going to take some ...

Re: Virtual Lard - announced where?

I had the same double take, I think it largely got mentioned by Jeremy on Twitter.

Re: I’ve opted for the all auxiliary force...

I’ve ordered my Victrix auxiliary force, plus some Warlord auxiliary archers and a bolt thrower (I’ll convert some crew into auxiliary crew) Plus I’ve got the movement trays from Charlie Foxtrot. Is it correct that Auxiliaries can choose to fight in skirmish formation? And if so do I need different...

Would Germanic buildings be greatly different from Dark ages Viking ones ? Largely wood mud and thatch?

Regards Alan
I think as long as it doesn't have any features that make it too 'viking' they would be interchangeable otherwise. At least it wouldn't look completely out of place.

Thanks guys. I'm looking at the Victrix cavalry 12 to a set and hoping they will be in sixes.. as three groups from two sets seems like way too much cavalry.
Similarly I'm hoping for 8s for the Romans becuase the EIR cavalry come in packs of 16.

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE - INFAMY! INFAMY!

Sorry guys, probably asked and answered before, but what group sizes should I be planning for in my purchases.. ? AFAIK 'Barbarian' infantry = 10 Roman Legions, Auxilia and Psiloi(lights) = 8 Chariots = 4? Cavalry ??? 'Barbarian' light troops? 6 or 8? Romans 8s all the time. Barbarians 10s in group...

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE - INFAMY! INFAMY!

Does this base look too big? It's a 35mm by 60mm, but 2p's look too small for lone cavalry These are from the Victrix Roman General sprue, so will be "Big Men" on the battlefield, so they want to be look important and leader-y. This one is the Primus Pilus, or a generic Senior Centurion, there's al...
