The Great Hoarding


Well, that is the trading over and the additional figures required for the Seleucid and Late Macedonian armies are now all accounted for. As are several bases worth of Imitation Legionnaires, Thorakites and Thureophoroi, meaning that the future offers a few options and an early Basic Impetus Pontic army – there are not enough Legionnaires to make the army the later version.

The list below is a first interpretation taken from the full Impetus list that is up for comment of the Impetus Forum.

In real terms the lead Mountain isn’t any smaller, but the figures that are there have a greater chance of actually being painted. This in itself is an achievement.

With college work full on at present, there hasn’t been much painting done, in fact almost none to be honest. Unfortunately, college is the priority  at the moment but that will change come early May. Here is a picture of the last figure for the Odalsbondi base for the Vikings as well as two frothing loons for the Berserker base.

Will try to keep updating the blog over the next 2 months but can’t make any promises.

Cheers for now

Greek stuff sounds as if it will make an excellent army - one I look forward to seeing on the tabletop.
Vikings advancing well too and should be a formidable opponent for the pre feudal scots I am proposing...
All the best with the studies!

p.s where is the best place to buy steel 28mm javelins spears?

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the encouragement with the Greeks and Vikings, unfortunately both far from finished. Real life getting in the way of play at the moment.

Regarding wire spears, try Northstar Miniatures, Gripping Beast or Ebay. Prices mostly the same but the postage varies.

Cheers
