Of all the historical match games, this set holds some of the quickest games to date.

The Herul will be featured in a series against Eastern Rome later this month.

Glad some players take the trouble to fight opponents their armies actually met. :)

With the tiny armies of DBA it isn't quite as challenging to do this Sobieski as it is with HC or Impetus. My Early Frank army in Impetus will require about 400 figures including allies in 28mm.

I know, but it's still a welcome concession to reality!

Robert is to be commended for his patient army building, painting, historicial research, terrain building, and faithful blogging of his efforts as he plays out historical match ups. It is a great resource when getting into a new historical aspect of the very large ancients/medieval period.

Completing projects within the confines of a full life should always be congradulated regardless of wether it is 80 figures or 400.

Marcus, I am currently working on our T&R Franks. Any thoughts on historical resources or sources? On line efforts so far have been a bit weak.

Yes, Bill the resources for Early Franks is a bit lean. For painting purposes I have used Armies and Enemies of Imperial Roman (WRG), Simon McDowell's Germanic Warriors (Osprey) and general search online to see what people have done. You might want to contact Simon directly as he seems well versed on the 5th century.
