Age of Myths, Gods and Empires / Re: Gladiators beyond the Foyle
« Last post by NickNascati on Today at 05:13:12 PM »
       Based on reading this, I ordered the rules and the hard copy cards.  I have been searching for a good Gladiator game, and this looks like it might work.  Just have to decide what Gladiators to use.  I am think 54mm Pegasus plastics.

I'm not sure why you are finding the Royalist horse under-powered. As you indicate in your analysis, their chances of inflicting damage are much higher. You ask why there was a change from 6+ to hit in TTS and 8+ in FK&P; I think the answer is that in FK&P you tend to be drawing more cards, so having more cards with a lower chance to hit allows for finer adjustment of probability than having fewer cards with a higher chance to hit. It has certainly not been our experience that Swedish style horse are too weak, and the Dutch horse cost you 3 medals when they rout.
Nice detailedboard.
Thanks Styx. With VUK landing this weekend I started cracking on those lovely new minis, and to start with, I finished my personal favourite from the Kickstarter, the Night Stalker, which is I've added to the gallery.
That's a chunk of work. It'll be interesting to watch your progress.
How do you intend on structuring your work load? Even painting as fast as I do I make that well over three hundred hours worth of work.

Well you did ask for it. This is my collection or most of it to date.

I have uploaded a lot more photos to the website and here is the link

I just snapped the shots on my painting table.  Didn't set it up as a proper shoot. The moody lighting was what I thought a happy accident.

Hi All,

Long-time lurker, but I figured I would start posting since I've loved reading everyone else's threads.

About me: Two small kids and work a crazy job so I don't have much free time. Started getting into the hobby in the 90's but dropped out three times.
This included me selling a whack of stuff in the early 2000's. I have slowly reaccumulated it all (and more) over time.
This is my attempt at making way on the grey and silver (all the unpainted minis).

My workspace is below as is what I am working on.

I love the old school Warhammer Fantasy Battle and Warhammer 40K starter sets. I will be working through them over time, and will hopefully see an increase in my painting skill.

MillenniumCon is the Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) annual war-gaming show held every Veterans Day weekend in Austin Texas.  We just held the show last weekend.

MillenniumCon Texas is in the history books - we had a great show - record attendance 360+, record number of games 112+ and record number of vendors 21. Next year we are already planning it bigger and better!! Mark your calendar now and plan to attend MillenniumCon XXII: 8-10 November 2019.

We went mega early this year, in what turned out to be a failed attempt, to get a space in the car park. Drove round & round the industrial estate opposite & eventually found a spot.
Got to the show, which had been open only 15 minutes, to be greeted by staff shouting,
"Can you have the correct money ready! We are nearly out of change!" Big surprise as the entrance
fee was 6.00 An amount almost guaranteed to require change, lots of it.
Having been in car for a while first port of call were the toilets...'Out of order' choice of going back out to the sports centre, or using the very small ones in the competition games hall.
Bring & Buy was already very crowded, Tried to get a look at what was there, gave up after
10 fruitless minutes.
The traders were friendly, helpful & nice, though I did overhear a few conversations about feeling
unloved by the organisers.
I have loads of respect for anyone who gives up their spare time to run a show, but PLEASE:-
Do something about the parking;
If you set the entrance fee at 6.oo  Get lots of change ready, or do what some countries do where change is in short supply, give something else e.g. lucky bags of figures (a large club
should have no problem culling members' lead mountains/MDF hills etc);
The Bring & Buy needs a major  overhaul. More table space at the very least. Move the traders
out, let the punters see what there is, and
Be nice to the traders, if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be back.
