Bugs, Romans, Robots - Lend Me Your Ear!
Not much to report in the Wargaming department. I've played a few rounds of WWI Naval and have finally started my 28mm Imperial Roman Army (Warlord figures). I've assembled twenty or so and am still doing research on Uniforms and periods. I want to model a specific legion. Any suggestions are welcome. I've acquired enough plastic figures for a 3,000 - 3,500 point army using Warhammer Ancient Battles (gotta love the cost of plastics). The only metal figures I've got are some calvary and the missile troops. Now for my standard plug - I got all my troops from Architects of War, and I highly recommend them - the service was very fast and they have just about all the Warlord plastic and metal figures in stock, which is more than I can say for most other US based online retailers. AofW also just became the exclusive US distributor for Gripping Beast and those Vikings look rather nice. Lets return to my normal ramblings.
There will not be much in the way of battle reports for the next three months as the games table has been transformed into a build area for my son's robotics' team. I've got high hopes for this year as we have most of last years team members and some new one's whose fathers are (1) a mechanical engineer and (2) and electrical engineer. With me being an economist my skills are somewhat limited. Here's a link to the FIRST competition if your interested in learning more.
