So having sold off my Ancient figures to fund other projects what could be more natural but to buy into another Ancient ruleset and start purchasing more new figures for it ! (well it makes sense to me in a perverted sort of way ) . I got their starter set off Ebay rather cheaply and it has enough figures for two warbands - one Caesarian Roman and the other Gauls . The rules are large skirmish about 10 to 30 per side depending on the nations and troop types .
The figures are a mixture of multi-part plastics and resin and are rather nice , here's a couple of Roman Legionaries I've painted up . I cheated with the shield designs and used the transfers that are included in the box . , there's a bit of work to do on the bases to finish them off .
For the Gauls a Druid which is a resin one piece casting . I think I'm going to enjoy painting these figures and have started reading through the rules which seem simple enough and very scenario driven - which I like . More to follow .....
