Hello all!
After years of hopping from one project to another in various scales (GW, warmaster, epic, 6mm historicals) i have decided to give 10mm historicals a go! I am currently assembling my punic war forces and so far i dont regret my decision, small enough for grand battles yet detailed enough to recognise different units!

Hello mad lemmy
Your franco prussian war basing has been a inspiration to my interest in the era and my 10mm basing. I was torn between warmaster 4020 and big bases. I have based my carthaginians on 80x40 with 18 miniatures or 9 cavalry and i am very happy with the results!

Aww thanks.
I would go wider and shallower if I had my time again, maybe if you put them into 3s to allow line, attack column and column like my 1864 Danes or Prussians,  but it's up to you.
 Each base tells a story and its the rule of cool that is important.

I have 6mm Punic Wars but many club members are, like myself, around retirement age and realise now that 10mm is easier on old eyes!

Welcome aboard. Good starting choice, but risky - I tried that, and ended up with Numidians, Iberians, Gauls, and Greeks as well in a very short time.

Do consider SYW for the horse-and-musket era. Look at the two big ones, then choose, but don't fall for aggressive marketing and popular stereotypes. I am devoted to my SYW, and I know gamers whom I respect (yes, there are a few) who feel the same about Austerlitz as I do about Rossbach. They're wrong, but that's another debate....
