Now I've order the troops its time to open a new painting diary so you can all share the joy of international shipping Wink Waiting
and my eventual painting progress Smiley

This project will produce the following DBA armies
  • 2x II/32a Later Carthaginian - with the extras to do II/32b the in Africa version
  • 2x II/33 Polybian Roman
  • 2x II/39a Iberian, II/39b Celtiberian
  • II/5h Siciliot
  • II/8a Bruttian or Lucanian, II/8c Apulian
  • II/11 Gallic
  • II/9a Syracuse in Sicily

So 10 armies with a pair or Carthaginian and Roman armies plus various 'allies' for Big Battle DBA Smiley

I've made a start on my painting research for the Punic wars project and I'm thinking about skin tone and hair colours

I typically use Vallejo 955 Flat Flesh highlighted with 845 Sunny Skin Tone and stereo-typically would use 867 Dark Blue Grey for hair for 'Mediterranean types'

I'm interested in any feedback on 'nationalities' that would vary significantly from this

The 'nationalities' included in the armies I'm doing:

Romans
Carthaginian
   Poeni
   Libyan
Numidians
Iberian / Celtiberian
Siciliot
Gauls
Bruttian, Lucanian, Apulian
Syracuse
Tarentines

It's an interesting period with the Romans losing every now and then (and they lose big too!). A buddy of mine wants too play it but his eyes are too bad for 10mm he says so he only wants to go 28mm... Roll eyes
Ah well; the research certainly was fun and painting and collecting the Romans too. Too bad he still hasn't finished even one Carthaginian! Angry Could have done both sides in 10mm by now.
Good luck with the project though; I'm sure they'll look great Paul!

Cheers,
Rob

It's been decades, but my recollection of DBA meets Punic Wars was one of command problems for the polyglot Carthaginians.
This led to their being ground down by the more heterogeneous Roman legions.

According to the parcel tracking service who brought my mat from Europe to Asia, it's still in the warehouse. Curious - we played a game on it yesterday.

I hope this parcel has a smoother run than the ECW stuff we bought a while ago.....that seemed to visit many places along the way IIRC?

Hopefully it will at least equal the best UK/NZ delivery time I have had which stands at 6 days from sending email order to turning up in my mailbox.

Yes, the ECW order got stuck in Beijing for quite a while Waiting
And neither Leon or I were getting useful answers from the courier company Angry

Given there are no flights from China to NZ at the moment I hope that the courier firm doesn't route it via China Nail biting
