General Wargaming

Just a teaser

Annually, for the past 9 years, we have run a mega-game at a local Train & Hobby show. We always post photos, alas through Photobucket & hence lost.

For our little group, this is the highlight of the year's gaming and the focus of much of our terrain creation & figure painting.

In 10 days time, we'll be running 'Hannibal Ad Porta' , a plausible battle where the Romans must stop the armies of Hannibal & his brother joining.

It will feature some 1400 1/72 & 20 mm figures. My contribution is about 400 figures for Hasdrubal's army & a few hundred Romans. I've been working on it, on & off, for the last 10 months & the joyous expectation of the show has easily kept me motivated.

I finished my last figure, last night.

Here's Hasdrubal's 1100 point Field of Gory army on the painting table:



(More & better photos in 2 weeks).

An army on mass is a special sight to set ones eyes upon.
Tons of work coupled with determination to succeed.Well done Donald. Great pictures by the way.

this is awsome ! 1/72 is the perfect scale for such big armies... I've planned to increase mine around 1500 minis, but what you've done in only 10 months is amazing. Obviously, i want more pictures or at least a link !! :-)
