Not long ago, I saw a thread on here where people were comparing the number of armies they had.
I first started wargaming in the 1980s and enlarged some of the WRG 6th armies to fit the 'new' DBM rules. Now that I've changed to DBA 3.0 I've obviously got a large number of figures knocking around and have begun the process of conversion.
My problem now is that I almost certainly have 'too many armies'.
For example, I have the following, all painted but with many needing work on the bases:
Got Rapier army set. I got EAP, the others got Spanish, EIP and Parthian's to ride round the rest of us. Like the look of some of their Biblical stuff too.
Good question on Spabara as one of the lads is just doing 80mm bases for Impetus but the rest of us are doing 40mm bases to use for different systems and sticking them together for Impetus. That's the plan for now anyway but expect a big block on a single 80mm base would look good. Mixed unit of Spear and Bow I am not sure as I don't know if the archers look like they would suit. Will have a play and see what looks good.
Hmm, in 1/72, Polybian Roman, Carthaginian, Gallic, Teutonic Knights, Mongols, assorted medieval elements to morph with. In 15mm, Double Hun and Frank armies, Patrician Roman, various Gothic armies, triple Later Swiss, 2 Condotta armies, dismounted knights, lots of peasant hordes for morphing. Other Fencibles have Macedonian, various hoplite Greek, Persians, triple Burgundian, HYW French and English, large EIR force, late Rome/early Byzantines, probably some other stuff.
