Thanks for all the kind comments folks! I'm still much happier paining 10mm and 6mm stuff, but these guys do have a certain charm.

How do you plan to use the heroes? Will they be part of a unit or characters on their own?

It rather depends on the rule set. For l'Art de la Guerre and Hail Caesar they would be implictly within units (except for the divisional commanders). For Fantastic Battles there is more scope to have characters running around on the table with a little more nuance; acting as individuals, joining units, and duelling as the mood takes them.

I took some pretty pictures of the army together!

There are also individual unit shots and the army lists for using the same force in different games up on the blog.

Excellent work!

Yeah for my 10mm I'm going with a mix of using them for commanders (the major heroes), using them as hero tokens (as To The Strongest uses heroes) and embedded into units (for minor named heroes) so on my lists each unit has a named unit leader as well as associated hero where applicable.

Should be reasonably adaptable to other rules too.

Really lovely. Would be interested in a size comparison between the various manufacturers if you get a moment.

Does this help?


From left to right: Newline, Foundry, Redoubt, Eureka and a Lucid Eye Amazon. Lucid Eye are just a smidge too tall for my liking, but the others will all work in an army together. In my Trojan army, they have no choice!
