Success with the Successors

Yesterday I painted the bases on the last figures for Craig's Successor army. So I think it might be time for a parade.

The full army
I have a late Republican Roman army to put together as opposition, but it was great to complete these guys for Craig. The units are expensive in terms of points - the phalanxes suck up a lot given their size - but the Romans are high cost too, so the armies look relatively small.

I'm just painting up my Argonauts for Mortal Gods and then it will be some 15mm Flames of War figures for other people. I haven't painted any 15mm for a while, and I have to say I'm not really looking forward to it - 28mm has really become my default scale now.



  1. You did a great job on this army, Nathan. Thanks for the parade!

  2. Great work on these Nate. As you say, they do look small for an "army" but I guess that is just the rule set and points system. The advantage of small armies is that you can actually have a game with a result in two or three hours. Don't worry about the 15mm....I feel the same but painted a decent batch of WWII Brits not that long ago, and you soon get back into the swing of the smaller scale!

  3. Beautiful and impressive army, good luck to your Romans!

  4. They look marvellous Nate...
    They look very intimidating... it makes one wonder on the mindset of the Roman legionnaires who took them on...

    All the best. Aly
