Steady progress this week with my first 'big' 28mmm project in a while - ProjectTroy. I've now seven of the planned 15 bases of phase one painted up. Here are the latest chaps - two companies of Trojan nobles with double handed axes from Eureka. The standard bearer is a Eureka spearman with a spare Newline standard.
In Fantastic Battles these will be elite companies with the fast and heavy melee weapons traits, in L'Art de la Guerre they count as Lukka MI swordsmen with impact, and should they be dusted off for Hail Caesar they'd count as a small unit of medium infantry tough fighters.

What follows is a long overdue missive from Mark in Thailand. This game was played back in October, but has been sitting in my inbox judging me until now!
4 x Galleys (48 pts each)
Q3 C3: Chaser guns, Galleon rigged, Master gunner, Trained gun crews
This has been investigated and the complaint has been partially upheld. There should have been one hit only, not two. Fault was ascribed to a junior officer on the galeass who panicked under pressure. But the investigation that noted the subsequent inability of the San Miguel to play any further role in the game, and its eventual explosive demise, were the result of its own shooting at the Borobudur, which caused the conflagration that spread to both vessels.

Some progress this week with the addition of a second Trojan prince/captian/sub-commander and some skirmishers equipped only with javelins and a bad attitude. All figures are from Eureka Miniatures relatively new 'Bronze Age Greeks' range. All still require a matt varnish to remove the glossy sheen caused by the inking process.
