Nic Robson advises that he's got enough interest to cover 60% of the project and is going to leave the window open until the end of the year. So if you are interested in the proposed range of 15mm Eureka Early (Gilgamesh-period) Sumerians...and haven't already corresponded...contact Nic to confirm your interest before its too late.
Nic Robson reports as of 26 Oct. that we're about 25% of the way to the green light threshold for the proposed 15mm Eureka Sumerian range…..so if anyone else is thinking about getting their Gilgamesh on and is willing to help support creation of a good range of 15mm Sumerian figures, now's the time to let Nic know at nicr (at) eurekamin.com.au
Tentative plans call for the 15mm Sumerian range to consist of 9 codes – a Command pack with Gilgamesh, officers and Royal Guards, plus codes for pikemen, axemen, archers, slingers and javelinmen with mixed poses, and codes for Sumerian battlecarts and straddlecarts…plus an option for Akkadian archers. The final list, including any possible additions to the above, will depend on the level of interest. Nic advises advances orders cumulatively totaling approximately 5000 miniatures (estimated at AUD$4000) would be sufficient to launch the project.
Eureka is no longer using its 100/300 Club catalog mechanism to log advance orders, but Nic asks that anyone who is interested contact him directly at nicr (at) eurekamin.com.au
I'm afraid not. It never truly went away if you knew how to find it...I left it up due to multiple requests from Fanatici looking to mine it and since the DNS/hosting was paid for. That is running out at the end of the month, and I'm afraid the old site will disappear once and for all.
For those who want to take a jaunt down memory lane for the last couple weeks...you can access it at www.fanaticus.org/DBA/
Some of the resources I wanted to preserve, such as the paper flags/banners, have been copied over to my FanatiChris blogsite at fanatichris.wordpress.com/
Thinking about the relationship of the Caecus (Bakırçay) River to Pergamon on a modern map....where the river runs roughly SW to NE, but to the south of both the modern city of Bergama and the ancient site of Pergamon, I wonder if the gully (river source) shouldn't be on the right side of the Pergamene set-up, instead of the left? The presumption being that the Galatians may have been moving westward, reaching the "source" of the river and looking to follow its northern bank towards Peragmon.
For folks unsure how to post pictures (or more specifically, how to display pictures of their armies/elements via embedded link in the Forum)...see the "how-to" at www.proboards.com/user-guide/posting/inserting-images or by accessing the HELP button above..which will eventually get you to the same place.
Pretty much the same as the old Vbulletin Fanaticus, the only difference being you get to work in regular HTML code links instead of having to figure out VBulletin's BBCode.
The subject of their last kickstarter, Baueda's range of 15mm Caesarian (Marian) Romans along with all their auxiliaries from Caesar's Germanic cavalry, to Illyrians, Ligurians, Iberians, Numidians, Rhaetians, Thracians and Celts, are now available for general order.
