Why, oh why did Foundry lower prices on these to something only a bear’s whisker north of 1€ per figure?
OK, I already own one of these armies (and one unit is already painted ), but with a second one I’ll have just about the entire Bavarian army of the period at a 1:30 scale.
Tempting, very tempting…
Resistance is futile. I ordered the Bavarian army Monday, and it’s currently sitting in a TNT warehouse awaiting a second delivery.
There is still time to buy the Huns :).
Not that I’m caving in ;-), but in what supplement are they featured and do any of you have possible opponent armies running about?
Hairy barbarians, both on and off horses? You could use them as most of the opponents of the Late Roman and Early Byzantine armies at any time, up until the early Middle ages, I would say.
So you could use suitable barbarian lists from Fall of the West, Beyond the Golden Gate or the old Nomadic Hordes list from Armies of Antiquity. I have all three books, should you want to borrow one :)
As to opponents, my Romano-British could easily stand in as Late Roman, and I think there is a proper Late Roman army running around somewhere as well I think (David or JP?). Plenty of choice :).
Oh dear, Bart, this will keep you busy! But I suppose every respectable gamer should have a Napoleonic army in his collection?
Caved… I’ll make an appointment with Wargamers Anonymous
