Having been painting, making and generally faffing around and not quite finishing my 28mm Patrician Roman army for the last 18 months, the annual Derby competition suddenly hove into view and offered up not one, but two opportunities to put the figures on the table.

The end result are 5 well-packed and imposing L'Art de le Guerre battle reports featuring sumptuous imagery of troops that are actually big enough to be able to see with the naked, unaided human eye!

Across the weekend the army from the tail end of the Roman Empire fought its predecessors, its contemporaries, its allies and it's mortal enemies – and even, on one notable occasion, itself – on a series of 6x4 tabletops in an aircraft hangar in the East Midlands.

See for yourself why the fall of the Roman Empire may actually have been FAKE NEWS, and why the 28mm game might well prove to be the absolute real sweet spot for Ancient wargaming with the L'Art de la Guerre ruleset.

Yes, these reports are possibly your gateway drug to mainlining the seemingly almost daily releases of plastic multipose 28mm ancients figures now on the market. Read on with care

Yay, another Madaxeman tournament report – always most entertaining to read.

Great fun! Nice looking minis, too.

It's always nice to see 25/28mm in action.
BTW, it looks like there was a copy & paste error when you transferred your Patrician army list to the wiki. There are no auxiliary & javelinmen on the list. It looks like you duplicated one command.

Good spot! Now fixed…

Speaking of lists, the Sassanid Persian list from Derby seems to have gotten some German allies.

More entertaining reports from Madaxeman! This time I've being tempted into a new scale and period!

That green cloth is looks perfect for use with green screen effects.

For the older members of the forum here's a suitable link.


Armoured versions to follow from the excellent Bob Naismith?

Someone should perhaps start a thread and list ADLG armies that could be assembled using just 28mm plastic figures updating as new arrivals come on the market.
