Salute VI - Last of the Phalangites

Here's a quick update on the Salute phalanx. I took delivery of the last required minis from Shaun this morning, and am hammering through highlights/varnishing/piking-up the remaining 288 phalangites, prior to the Big Base, which will be week after next, I hope. I'm highlighting them in batches of 48; just 3 batches left to do, perhaps 8 evenings work.

After these are finished, there will be the small matter of finishing the casualties and some new command stands to lead the formations. Early next week I'll post an image of what's completed, so far. I'm still on target for Salute, although it's going to be tight!

I still have some opportunities for players at Salute, in what is likely to be one of the largest (perhaps even the largest) Ancient Wargames ever to be run at a show. Drop me an email if you are coming and fancy playing To the Strongest! for an hour or two. 

In other news... I've just published v.12 of Even Stronger, the TtS! rules supplement. It's free, you can download it from here.

Good luck at Salute. We have decided not to go again. The venue is appalling unfortunately.

Sincere congratulations on your accomplishments re the fantastic looking phalanx(es) and the recent update of ES.

To remark that you've been busy would be an understatement.

Here's hoping that sufficient visual record is made of what may well be the largest Ancients Wargame ever staged. (Where would one find evidence of that anyway?)

My hands tremble and my heart quivers at the thought of basing all of those figures at once! :-)
