ALY MORRISON'S "BUTTERFLY" ADVENTURES IN THE WORLD OF WARGAMES AND TOY SOLDIERS

DBA… Another game and my Dacians.

Greetings…

On Friday we had another couple of games of DBA.

It was a chance to get two new armies on to the table… My Dacians and Israel’s Spanish…
Israel and Alessandro took the Spanish and Matt and I took the Dacians…

We went for two players a side again as we are still collectively getting our heads around the rules and this way kept us a bit more focused…

We had two games… The Spanish won the first and the Dacians the second.
An excellent result I think.

Here are some pictures from the first game…





My dice throwing was up to its usual high standard.

The second game…






It was interesting using our new armies as it gave us a chance to try out a good part of the rules… there was a fair amount of looking things up but it all proved profitable and it sparked of a number of interesting conversations.
I am sure that after a few more sessions we will get quite slick at things.

My Dacians…

The General (4Wb)…




Horsemen (Cv) and Sarmatians (3Kn)…




Falxmen (3Bd)…




Warriors (3Wb)…




Javelinmen (Ps)…




For the uninitiated this is all the options that the Army Lists allow… 12 stands equals an army.
The letters/numbers in brackets are the unit definitions in DBA.

The figures are from Forged in Battle…


The figures were painted in my usual way using a variety of muted colours for the clothing and slightly bolder colours for the shields… 

All the best. Aly

40mm Napoleonics… Spanish Infantry and a couple of British Officers.

Greetings…

Here are more additions to this collection…

Spanish 36th Infantry Regiment Irlanda…








The Trousers are… Citadel… Pallid Wych Flesh, Administratum Grey and Doombull Brown.
The Blue Bits are… Citadel… Hoeth Blue.
The Yellow bits… Foundry… Ochre 4B.
Guns and Packs… Citadel… Mournfang Brown.
Greatcoats… Citadel… Administratum Grey.
Red Bits… Citadel… Evil Sunz Scarlet.

I really like the colour combinations of this uniform.

And the British Officers…
These chaps took part in the Boxing Day Game but I realised that I hadn’t shown them as individual figures…







Yet again these were all a real pleasure to paint…
I have now managed to paint all of the 40mm Perry Miniatures castings that I have… shock horror… the box is empty ūüė≥.
I may have to get a few Cavalry.

All the best.  Aly
