Looking back at my photos it was August last year that I played the first two battles of the campaign. It was the third battle that threw the thing off balance as I didn't have the required armies ready due to not having enough figures or having them painted.
I've yet to post the first two seasons of the campaign but seeing as I am finishing two of the armies I would show them off anyway.
Treyine is based on the 100 Years War English so its a very "shooty" army with lots of bows, a few dismounted Knights. I have never painted a Historical ancient\medieval army before so I simply painted what I saw fit (As its only for a fantasy setting). The are based on my older style with paddock style grass and look OK for a fantasy human army, but probably not for 100YW.
Unfortunately for Treyine, the huge empire next door decided they liked to add their lands to their collection. Tropilium is based upon the Late Roman Empire which until, I started painting I knew nothing about. I did a little research on shield design and colours and then painted them up over about ........erm......6 months. The figures are the old TTG figures so they have seen better days, a few highlights and some new basing have them looking a lot better than what they did previously.
The random dice rolls for army selection saw a large army being generated. 6 elements of Legion, 6 of Auxilia plus loads of Archers and Equites.
Unless the Long bows of Treyine can keep those blades away I think things might go a little sour in the Kingdom.
So hopefully I will play the game this week and then start posting the actions reports on the blog.
I don't know if i will ever play ancients as a period as such. I've seen a few games being played locally but, to be honest, the participants don't like overly joyed to be playing. Perhaps its the ruleset they are using or I go and have a look at some miserable moment or when they are having abreak ?
