Of Generals And Heroes

 Now in the Neil Thomas Ancient and Medieval rules one doesn't need these, indeed the C in C is not represented on the table (although we have added these in, see AMW Rule Additions in the side bar). Now on the other hand in To The Strongest they are required and indeed are desirable, so with these in mind I have added more leader types to the collection in recent days. I have also done another base of warriors to deepen another base.

Below added to another base.

Next the generals and/or heroes.






Hopefully these will hit the table for a game of To The Strongest  next month.

  1. Very nice work, Phil! Just because you don't need them is no excuse not to paint them.

  3. Spiffing additions to the forces of the Goths! The Woemans aren't bad either!

  4. Very nice. You can spend a bit of time staring into each figure, as there is much to see - I like that. The extra rank idea brings a lot of flexibility.

    1. Thank you Norm, yes the extra base makes it look and easier to rember it is a deep unit in To the Strongest and two can be put together to form another unit for Neil Thomas's rules.

  7. Some lovely additions to your collection Phil...
    One always needs heroes and generals... who else are you going to blame when it all goes wrong...

    All the best. Aly

    1. Bill based the figure on an Illustration by the late great Ian Heath for the Osprey Germanic Warrior book, I based the colours on it also to complete the homage.
