Chapter II wherein Pompeous Augustus Pettygree's Legio II is now heavily engaged Right, Center and Left along the battle front on Sardonia Island. King Sardonicus III refused to continue sending tribute to Rome and must reemphasize his decision by throwing the Romans back into the Middle Sea here:
Some of you read Chapter I athis past week. Now read Chapter II to discover what is happening in imagineered Antiquity.
As usual the story is told by personalities, dialogue and briefly captioned photos.

Huzzah, congrats!

Ooops, that wouldn't work on such a field of battle as that … lol.

I can see that the great battle is reaching a dramatic climax. This is the moment of truth for Pompeius Augustus Pettygree! I love the fact that your old-style figures are still active on the tabletop. They have a charm all their own. The heterogeneous army of Sardonius is also quite nice. Particularly thematic are the Great King and his minister in their elephants. Thanks for sharing. Great fun!

AHHRRRRGGGG! Come ON! You have great figures, great yarn, why ruin the game with CURTAIN RINGS? I'm not a painter but even I won't sink that low! Find something more elegant and less intrusive. Even you grey sabot bases are OK they don't shout out. Paint the Damn rings grey, not good but nowhere near as bad. All I see is Curtain Rings, such a shame , Rant over. ;-)

Yeah, curtain rings don't do it for me either. Based casualty figures, abandoned shields and helmets etc as markers would be better.

However . . . I am no one to complain because a) I can't paint very well, and b) I don't have a blog to record my exploits.

So 4.5 out of 5 from me, with the only deduction being the aforementioned curtain rings. Keep it up :~)
