Sandals into the new year.

Nothing much to report on the gaming front the last month or so. I was able to place an order for some of Baccus' new Marian Romans. When they arrive, I will be faced with a decision: Base them for 15mm frontage or 25mm frontage. Currently, my Dwarves are all on 60x30mm bases and I love the mass effect this size gives. However, going to 60mm takes the Marians out of the running for 15mm HotT and DBA - both popular out my way. Decisions, decisions....

Decisions like that are what makes the hobby fun.

from http://www.fanaticus.org/DBA/guides/scale.html

"One quirk about 25mm scale in DBA is that 25mm armies fight on a larger board (4 feet by 4 feet). Note that the board width is doubled from 15mm to 25mm scale (i.e. from 2 feet to 4 feet). However, the recommended element frontage only increases 50 percent (i.e., from 40mm to 60mm). That means that a 25mm DBA army occupies a smaller percentage of the game board and that there will be more room to maneuver on the flanks, which can change the character of play especially for highly maneuverable Light Horse armies."

Interesting observation and a good reason to try a larger board.
