OK with over 100 followers (HOOOOORRAAAAYYYY) it´s time to start a serious project!
As I´m getting older and wiser and I realized that I´m not the painting-large-armies-type of wargamer. So I´ll concentrate on skirmish projects with a more heroic, story telling approach.
I always loved the Late Roman/ Early Byzantine period, seeing the decline of Western Rome´s power and the raise of the German tribes, they of course only fleeing from the Huns pressing in from the east. So here are some great opportunities to build some small german or hun raiding partys and roman patrols to stop them looting.
My german tribe of choice are Saxons. I live in a city near the Teutoburg Forrest, an area where, in ancient times, the Cherusci slaughtered Varus´ legions, and the Cherusci later became Saxons when the allied with other tribes. So here the first ones, Witold and his younger brother Erkmar.
More to follow soon...
Weekend Seminar ahead!
