Re: An Army for Derby

How did you find the Ellie Bob?

I have one for my Carthaginians and am thinking of using it at Derby.

Re: Derby Worlds classical event

So I've signed up and I'm hoping work does not get in the way and stop me attending! I plan to use my Later Carthaginians, what will others be using? I'm not 100% certain, but my list will look something like this (from memory without the book in front of me): Army General 5 Commanders 5 Veteran Afr...

If I recall correctly you can get Cretan Archers by taking them from the Pergamene allies list. I can't recall the exact restrictions though.

Blimey that smiley was bigger than I thought, not what I intended!!!

I think GB have said The book will be released and available at Salute, and that pre-orders will be in the post the following week. So we only have less than three weeks to wait!

The skirmish javelins, slings and bows from here will be suitable: http://www.grippingbeast.co.uk/Hellenis ... y--95.html

There's Pergamene cavalry here:

Of course I paid no attention to the subject and only read the body of the post!

Re: New Clascal Republcan Roman 105 30 BC List query

Which Republican Roman List?

There's several I recall:
Polybian - about 400bc-250bc (inc First Punic War)
Camillan- about 250bc-105bc (inc Second Punic War)
Late Republican - about 105bc-30bc (Marian/ Caesarian)

There's also an earlier list, plus an Early Imperial and Mid Imperial list!

Re: FIRST BLOOD - One Day Event

Wayne, I think John W. Is going to come along with me tomorrow. I hope that's ok! I now have two armies rebased, my Carthaginians, as well as my Normans, and I'll bring them both. Cheers, Ed
