Brilliant. What great figures ex-force have given us to play great battles like this. Look forward to seeing pictures/video of the game.Best Wishes Dave Lycett from England
Ghee !... what fantastic colors have you used on these figures. Are all these patterns from you (books) sources. The seem to be screaming out loud: 'hit me with your dice throw'. My direct next level of interest is what you are going to set-up on the gaming table, Dirk? What do you have in mind in you wildest (toy soldier) dreams?
Hi Marcel. The battle had 4 divisions on each side, but varying in stength. Translated to the game table (4m by 2m), this should become:The Persian army (left to right)The Persian one 10 units of infantry + 3 of light cavalry;Medes: 5 unit of infantry;Barberian/mixed 5 units of infantry + 3 of light cavalrymedizing Greeks: 5 units of infantry( 3 hoplite) and 1 unit of cavalryGreek side (right to left):Spartan coalition 6 units of infantry (4 hoplite of which 2 elite, other veteran)Corinthiëns an allies 4 units (2 or 3 hoplite veteran)Other cities 4 units (2 or 3 hoplite veteran)Athens: 5 units of infantry( 3 hoplite veteran)The light cavalry will have only a limited number of shots (2), as we have seen in the test game their shots were to telling in the long run.The influance of the Greek lance being longer than the one the Persians used has also to be added in the next game. Finally , the hoplites used a kind of impact charge to avoid the storm of arrows.So, this would give us arround 400 figures on the table. Concerning the patterns, they inspired by books and google, and my own immagination. As here were no real uniforms, every option is possible. Not all figures will be X-Force. I hope to be able to do the battle twice at Crisis.
