I have been a little too busy to post on this site lately. My friend and I did have another Warmaster Ancients game. The opposing forces were similar to the previous battle, though this time the Corinthians faced some pike armed infantry and elephants in the center and fewer horse archers. The two historical armies were Alexander Macedonians and Bactrian Greeks as before. Both commanders were on the same flank again, but this time they engaged in combat that decided the battle. The Corinthian commander died after being charged in the front by cataphracts and the flank by heavy cavalry. Preceeding action had seen the Zamoran(Bactrians) left wing overrun the Corinthian right wing cavalry and light infantry. Following up from the death of the Corinthian commander the Zamoran cavalry fell on the flank of the Corinthian phalanx as it was being engaged by the Zamoran elephants and phalanx to its front. The Corinthian phalanx then proceeded to fall apart resulting in a clear victory for the Zamorans.


During the summer I finished painting another 1000 phalangites, 600+ Republican Romans, a few other odds and ends, and a couple hundred 28mm fantasy figures. The new phalangites and Romans are from Rapier Miniatures by Newline designs. They are the same size as Baccus Miniatures from the bottom of their feet to the top of their heads, but have slightly thicker bases. Their detail is a bit better than comparable figures from Baccus. I will have to take some pictures and post them here.
