Wonderful photos and great close ups. You can nearly imagine the battle sounds and screams. Well done. I liked photo nr. 29, that says a lot about the Roman camp.

Now I am impressed. Excuse me while I pick my chin off the floor.

IMHO, it is one HELL of Game!!!!!!!!! How many figures? It really looks great, well done!! Cheers Mike Adams

Beautiful…….That is how a gaming table should look, I wish I was at that game.

There are a lot of figures there, and beautifully painted too, but at the risk of being picky, where are all the Roman cavalry that swept the chariots from the field in the real battle? 'Twas the Romans that won on the flanks on the day…


LEGION 195001 Feb 2011 3:58 p.m. PST

Simon, I can lend him some of mine!! Mike Adams

Yes they wouldn't be quite so outnumbered then, Mike!


Jamesonsafari01 Feb 2011 6:16 p.m. PST

Wow! Not sure which I'm the most envious of: the armies and terrain or the gaming room.

John Leahy02 Feb 2011 6:31 a.m. PST

That is one hell of a gaming room and battle! Absolutely stunning! Only a slight nit pick. I'm not a fan of games with troops lined up edge to edge. No flanks.

How did the Romans get across that huge crevase between the two tables?

Fantastic work! Very impressive!

Stunning.. Very good photos, minis, etc..

Joe; great looking painted miniatures and fantastic photos. I have two questions, (1) what are those two gentlemen doing in photo 68 or 69? (2) their are many different types of movement trays, who made them?

Joe Dever03 Feb 2011 4:17 p.m. PST

To oldbob:

1. The aforementioned gents in pic 69 are carrying out some in-game spear re-fixing (the superglue standing on the table is the giveaway clue in this regard).

2. Some are homemade, but most of the movement trays are from Terrain Warehouse. Here's the link:

The game and gaming area are outstanding! This is what war gaming should be. Great bunch of friends and a tremendous amount of effort on everyone's part is very evident.
This gives me more to strive for in my games.

LEGION 195004 Feb 2011 9:44 p.m. PST

Greg, do you think I have enough figures to cover this battle? Mike

Pauls Bods05 Feb 2011 10:01 a.m. PST

Incredible work. The size of the gaming table, the size of the Armies.
