A new beginning

Ladies and Gentleman, I am proud to announce our next big project:

The battle of Marathon!

This will be our project for the Hamburger Tactica in 2014, so watch out for a lot of information on history, miniature painting, and terrain building from now on!

Cheers,
Thomas

  1. Altough I, as an historian, personally regard the inner Greek struggles as much more interesting, I'm very pleased to see that you chose an ancient theme. I recommend this book: http://www.karwansaraypublishers.com/shop/ancient-warfare/awspecials/the-battle-of-marathon-special.html I haven't read it, but the Ancient Warfare magazine has a high quality und the illustrations are superb!

    1. Thanks Thomas. As you'll know there are so many great battles in the Greek history, we found it hard to choose one. Finally the different units on both sides and the fact that this battle was not done as a participation game at the Tactica made us choose especially this one.

      It will be interesting to see if the "facts" told by Herodotus will prove fake or real as we recreate this battle. (Personally, I think his numbers are way over the top, but the winner writes history, doesn't he?)

    1. Currently we are desperately waiting for our first (of probably many) orders to arrive, but as soon as we got hands on the miniatures, we'll let you know!

  3. This sounds like an epic project. The inclusion of tutorials on terrain building would be most appreciated by me.

    1. No, Sir. Good old 15mm miniatures!

    2. How bad, there are some really nice 1/72 hoplites and Persians - surely beating 15mm :P And most 28mm too, in this case.

    3. Absolutely, Thomas. As we can see over at your blog, the 1/72 miniatures are really nice scuplts, but we decided to make a more classical approach. Who knows, maybe you'll find a place in your heart for those old-fashioned 15mm miniatures. :-)
