It's time yet again for Kenneth Williams to don his toga and avoid being stabbed in the back as he takes command of a Patrician Roman army against enemies from all edges of the Roman empire - Franks, Palmyrans, Spaniards and the eastern extremities of the Warring States Chinese in four separate 300 point L'Art de la Guerre doubles battle reports.



Thrill to the thunder of hooves, marvel at the download time of the often inappropriate and shoehorned-into-the-narrative comedy animated GIF's, hold your breath in fear as the two lines of mighty warriors clash together and roll dice to see who comes out on top in almost [url=https://www.madaxeman.com/reports/Godendag_2018_1.php]10,000 words of irrelevant and semi-educational nonsense
.



Reports contain all the usual mutterings and puns, as well as some truly incredible feats of bravery and military success (not all of which are from the Roman troops - as you may well already have guessed..).



See for yourself if they truly do have it Infamy..

Why do you have giants as your command(?) stand? Probably just my OCD kicking in, but it just looks wrong to me, and breaks the delusion.

They’re not giants, that’s just how they see themselves compared to their minions!  Wink

I started using a few lone 28mm figures that I happened to have kicking about as the CinCs base in a few of my armies a few years ago with the idea of giving these characters a bit more personality - it means the CinCs base stands out clearly from the other troops (and lesser Generals).  It is a tad weird, but I've sort of gotten used to it and a few other people have picked up the idea too.

In game terms command stands are simply markers that mark where the command and control capability is centred, so Generals are not actual regular units that can fight. These rules also have different grades of generals, with the CinC usually being better and more capable than his minions so having a "Big Man" who in any case never actually fights in his own right is not entirely (but admittedly still a bit) weird.

This is the only one where I have used two 28mm figures though - I was admittedly in two minds about that.

Here's a few more:  https://www.madaxeman.com/main/28mm_generals_for_fog.php

You are simply following ancient practice!
