Trajan in Germany ...

Friday night's attempt at a Volley and Bayonet game was stymied by illness and fatigue, so we managed an impromptu Armati game with Trajanic Romans against Ancient Britons. I hauled out masses of 25mm figures that have not had the 21st Century Robin painting treatment (i.e. they are as they were painted 25+ years ago). We managed two games in the evening, the Romans winning convincingly in both encounters. Just a few shots of the armies in the first of the two games. Despite the painting quality, quantity still has a quality of its own. It's been a while since I played Armati and I'd forgotten what a good game it gives.. "things to do" list: play more Armati soon.

These are Minifigs Romans that were bought back in the early 1980s.

The cavalry here are actually Huns used to proxy as AB cavalry. I converted these from.. wait for it ... Airfix napoleonic British Hussars.. WAAAAY back in the late 70s.... well, you did that sort of thing back then, didn't you.

EEE by gum  .. them were the days eh laaad!!
