"L'Art De La Guerre is the current hotness in the Ancients community – a one book package with all the rules and armies. The majority of the players play in 15mm, but a few select brave souls play in the "Manly Scale" of 28mm. Its a righteous beautiful wargaming event to play Art De Guerre in 28 mm. I do not own any 28mm Ancients, so all of these great looking figs belong to Sean Mackintosh. The armies set for this day's battle were Late Imperial Romans vs. the Visigoths. The Roman force was Cataphract Heavy with a good backbone of Legionnaires. The Visigoths had the usual tons of sword swinging warrior infantry with the elite nobles mounted on Medium Cavalry. The Romans – having better command – were able to choose to defend against the Visigoth attack…"

I thought the manly scale was 54mm--or maybe that's the ogrely scale.

that's the ogrely scale.
So 54mm have layers? Ogres have layers.
Nice looking game!

They are so Manly, they carry their own trees with them into battle!
Now THAT'S Manly!

Very good write up and the figures look beautiful. A lot can be said to play a large battle like that with 28mm figures. It is interesting on how the battle played out and how you reached a critical point.

Surely 6mm is the manly scale? You know, not having to prove anything…
Lovely figures though.
|Hafen von Schlockenberg||13 Feb 2016 9:32 a.m. PST|
Then I guess 2mm would be the Supermanly scale!
