Hi All,

I thought I would share some progress on turning a Successor ScenarioX list into a miniatures army.

Using 50mm round bases to mount 3mm miniatures, and a 5mm dice to track the blocks.

12 bases fit nicely into a little A5 storage box - Quicker to setup & packup and in my opinion nicer to look at.

At the moment I have the following painted up:
1x HI, 3x MI, 1x Aux, 1x EL



-- Progress Update --

Added some LSI & LI to the army (LI will form part of the next army for Pyrrhus)
I also bought some new dice for the Medium units as I didn't like the light blue. I'll finish the basing once I got all 12 ready to go.



Phalanx HI, MI, EL
Aux, LI, LSI



-- Progress Update --

Had some serious time off but have got started again plan now is to finish off the Successor army, then move onto the Romans - here are a unit of warriors for the Successors. Also have the second HI phalanx unit done too.





Thanks,
T.Gracchus

Very nicely done! I especially like use of dice to show the number of units :)

Thanks, it took me a while to find all the right bits to make these work, but i'm pretty happy with the results thus far. I was keen to keep the units playable on a standard board, yet still have the look and feel of army.

Still need to figure out exactly and show the difference between Light Infantry and Light Sling/Bows. My aim is to paint up a few different ScenarioX armies of 12 bases each. Then be able to use from these to play campaigns, standard scenarios and epic battles by combining them when needed.

Here is a close up of the dice, they're small! - they work well to show both unit type and blocks with the added bonus of allowing me to keep the entire unit as one component. I can also easily interchange MI & HI or MC & HC just by using a different colour dice if a scenario requires it.



Thanks

Very nice! I have just realized how small are your miniatures (real minis) - I assume pictures show units on standard size CCA board?

Yeah, it's all on a standard CCA board. I really wanted these to be something that adds to the existing content, rather than remaking everything at a new scale.
