That's a bit harsh, isn't it?  ;)

Let's not give them ideas. Some of the best things in LPL have been the big crowd scenes some people do. Would be an awful shame to change that. I'd say as long as you have a team of five you're good, everything else is just 'background' and needn't be scrutinized too closely.

I am with you, and I am sorry for even broaching the topic of it not being the case. My favorites have always been the "Where is Waldo?" scenes, like this:

Absolutely.  As long as it includes the minimum 5 new miniatures, preferably prominently, I am all in favour of the crowd scenes.  Although 'The Prof' has sometimes painted everything from new (no pressure!)

I think our friend Plynkes was trying to suggest that I was agreeing with your statement on being a "thicko".....  Heaven forbid such a notion.  :)

Do five gladiators count as a team? They're sort of antagonistic...

They would be fine.  They could easily belong to a single ludus and therefore considered "team-mates"

Q: for the british are coming, do the “figures” have to be infantry models? As in would a team of, say, british tanks or other military vehicles be acceptable??

It’s a minimum of 5 figures or models in a team. So five tanks would be fine. Or three figures, a truck and a field gun. Any combination of at least five identifiably separate component ‘team’ members  :)

Besides, there is new evidence that some of them [Picts] drank tea and played cricket.  :)

They can take our lives, but they will never take our sightscreens!
