Hmmmmm.... if I paint one unit of everything I own, it comes to over 2000 points just in Carthaginians and Allies. :shock:

2000 plus options was the standard size for armies when I was doing the competitions. So it's an ideal size. All my armies will be around 2000-2200 points.

RE Your Unit size query: I found an old army list which included a 40 strong Unit of Fyrd, a 24 strong Unit of Huscarls and a ten man unit of heavy cavalry plus Skirmishers and Characters.

Thanks Paul. I’m kinda settling on 32 man for the Gauls and 16 - 24 men for the Cartho’s.

Battlecar Farca and his ally Ginantonix have already started the recruitment and training process.

Just been on a daytrip to Bridlington, which just so happens to have Yorkshire's premier wargames shop. Picked up a copy of Swordpoint, no figures this time, waiting for Fiasco and Battleground.

You need to drop my Hittites Simon and have me in painting hell for Italian Feudals and buying frenzy for Angevins.

If you have a Kanban, you can drop your Hittites; if not I don't want to look.
