Between my Christmas-season birthday and Christmas itself, I received three packets of Numidian infantry from Wargames Factory. That’s 84 figures (plus several nice Viking samplers that are being set aside for other things). Now my only question is how to configure them. I figure I’ll base them along WAB/WHFB lines, singly on 20mm bases. I’m thinking the following configuration:
- 2 units of 20 spearmen
- 1 unit of 20 swordsmen
- 1 unit of 10 bowmen
- 1 unit of 10 javelins
That way I could use them as an “alt” Empire Army or Chaos Marauder list. Thoughts?
I guess it depends what people are playing historicals-wise in your area. If it’s WAB/WHFB, then definitely go for it. If it’s FOG or DBA, well, 84 figs probably isn’t enough anyway, but you might want to explore alternate basing strategies that could replicate that effect (so for FOG which does the 4-to-a-base thing, perhaps basing them on larger 25mm bases rather than 20mm bases to better replicate what their lines look like).
