It has arrived...

EI4 that is. On first glance a good product with an interesting range of army lists. The history for each section provides an overview of the period without detailing every move made by the opposing armies. The campaign that is detailed is simple enough to create game play but has enough detail to keep it interesting.

The main list at this time here is the Spartan list, which offers some more variety within the list. Yes its still a hoplite army but there are options with certain units to create a detailed and varied army without over kill. This does open up some more options the list created for Mantinea but this in itself is good, especially with a days gaming in the offing at Cinaed late next month. On the downside a few more bases will have to be painted but the list has provided the motivation to do this and on that subject here a few pictures of the Spartan's as they stand at present:



Hopefully there will be more to follow over the next few weeks before Cinaed on the 20th of November. Also a quick welcome to:

Thanks for joining the brave followers of this blog.


That's all for now.

Cheers.

The Spartans are looking pretty smart so far, well worth the effort to add a few more bases.

Gents,

Thanks for the kind comments and it does look like another few bases will be making their way to the painting table over the next few weeks.

Cheers
