Beyond the Gates of Antares

Whilst finishing off my most recent unit of Epirote phalangites, I have done some thinking about 'Antares' (as I shall call it from now on).

I'm not sure about what sort of setting to use - urban (indoor or outdoor?), industrial, countryside, desert, ice-world, or what? There is some (okay, a lot of choice!) …

And another unit of Phalangites


Despite the temptation posed by the Antares boxed set, I've finished yet another unit of phalangites for Pyrrhus' army:

The phalanx is about half-done now - 152 figures down, and about the same to go!

And Now For Something Completely Different...


(with apologies to Monty Python's Flying Circus!)

In a moment of madness, I pre-ordered the starter boxed set for Warlord Games' new Sci-Fi game "Beyond the Gates of Antares". This morning, it arrived.I am supposed to be a mature, sensible, historical wargamer... So why the heck am I as excited as an eight-year-old on Christmas morning?
