A couple of weeks ago our group played a massive Sassanid vs Romans 28mm game, lots of pictures and game outline on the blog.

Well done1 In this day and age in the hobby where most games are a handful of figures, this battle shows how impressive big games with a lot of miniatures are.

Fantastic game, looks like it was great fun too.

what a great looking (and sounding) game!

Would it be the siege of Singara in 360AD? 2 legions were captured and disappeared into the Sassanid Empire depths.

Thanks guys, just worked out roughly 1,400 figures on table. korsun0 not sure if that was the battle but it was 4th century so the timeline is about right.

Roger, who made the figures for the Great King's command base?

RogerC28 Sep 2018 11:48 a.m. PST

It was a specific commission so there are some commercial figures on there and loads of stuff from various makes. I will ask Chris whose figures they if he knows.

great looking armies, love my Sassanids and Late Romans

Sassanids have to be one of the most colourful armies going and the Romans are not that far behind.
