Man oh man! I am enjoying following this campaign. You do a great job writing it up, it's just like a season of the t.v. show "Rome" or one of Stephen Dando Collins' books! I must say, I worry about this Alanicus fellow. He's a crafty bugger isn't he? Still, I wonder if he'll prove as good a general as he has a mafioso?

Fantastic site! Lovely figures, enjoying the North African stuff.

Could you post somewhere what rules and campaign mechanics you are using? I've a good sized EIR army and would love to try something similar. My friends and I have just started a Marian-era campaign.

@Simon: I am the anonymous poster on your previous entry, and had learned about your blog here, where you may find a couple of useful ideas to add to the huge volume of great ideas that you have already had:

Note that the user 'flyingdragonboy' or somesuch is said to be the new editor of the English edition of Wargames, Soldiers, and Strategy magazine ...

An aside: Hey, Rob ('dewolfe')! We should try for something like this near Ottawa ...

Oh, and I meant Simon the blogger, and not Simon the bigredbat.

Too many Simons around here with 20+ years wargaming experience, and roman armies!

Wow all these people on the site, great stuff! Merry Christmas to one and all. The amount of times I almost gave up blogging because I thought there was no one out there.....I'm glad I didn't. I'm delighted you're all enjoying it and thankyou for the support. Secundus for Emperor!

Have you thought of setting-up a 'labels' section, as at the bottom of this page?

It would be more work for you, but it should make it easier for the casual visitor to find some topics more quickly.

By the way, should you plan to do some urban fighting, this kit begs to be re-scaled and used:

I have picked one up myself, for Renaissance gaming, Roman gaming, or both.

I think that it should be easy enough to convert, simply by cutting the vertical part down to size, and perhaps by either replacing the ball with a 15mm scale mythological figure-as-statuary, or simply cutting it off altogether. I'm just not so sure about how Roman the lion mask would be ...

Hmm, it looks as if that fountain would not be very Roman-looking, after all, even if they did, sometimes, use lion motifs. Sorry!
