However I've got 27 chariots painted so far so we'll need a big table! 😆😆😆
I propose the setting to be the hills and woodlands of Italy and Spain 😂😂

Gary, Quick thought on scenery for our game...any ideas if we need anything extra?

Maybe some fortifications or the edge of a town walls or anything?? The odd farmstead or Romano-Style Villa??

I guess it's dependent on the scenario, but amidst furiously painting Romans, I just wondered 😀

Gary and Simon, given that we probably have more troops than we have table size, have you given an idea as to force sizes and scenario?

Need to decide if I should paint more troops or just pitch with what I have.

Jeremy, I thought it might be best to use whoever has the smallest force as a benchmark and then scale everyone else's to that. So if you want to tell me what you are okay to bring, I'll figure out a scenario. We ought to plan on having some surplus stuff for others that want to join in who have no figures.
Why us? Cos we're 'ere lad, nobody else.
