Now days and at my age having a social life outside the family is virtually non-exsitant however, it has left me with a few spare weekends with couple of like minded chaps rolling few dice across a table and pushing a few figures around the table, eating too much cake and coffee......with the odd beer or wine. Some say that is perfect and to be honest I do not mind it either. Lately my eyesight is starting to blur and I have been resisting going to the optometrist so I have turned to basing to fill the void. The lads up on the this post I have based for a good friend, Jeff Smith, who is building a Basic Impetvs Pyrrhic Army. These fine fellows represent the first half. In a container in my office I have four units of pike, two hoplite units and some celts. All the figures today have been painted by our local champion painter - Leroy Simpson, who once again has done a fantastic job. Jeff Army is a mix of 1st Corps, Aventine, Crusader and Warlord Games Miniatures.
