English Civil War Mortar

This ones part of the desk clean off. The figures are by warlord and its on a 80mm by 100mm base. Super generally speaking I like the warlord ecw artillery. It's a little on the pricey side but it paints up really nice. I dont't know a ton about the era so I just went with the colors on their site. At some point I'll get around to finishing some infantry. More pictures after the break.

Roman Triarii

This is the first unit for the project detailed in the last entry. I made these using the Victrix Romans in chainmail box. The figures themselves are fantastic. Easily assembled with good options.

Trasimene or Bust

Ever since I played Total War Rome 2 I have completely fallen in love with the Second Punic War. There's been a lot of real life getting in the way of the hobby the last couple weeks so there's been a lot of reading other peoples blogs and what not. The biggest inspiration for starting this project now (in the middle of cleaning off the desk) was the Olicanalad Blog. A while back he posted a campaign using the Hannibal board game as the engine. An idea which I'd like to shamelessly rip off. I figured I'd start off with core armies, then stage my own Lake Trasimene game (at a smaller scale)
