Not had a lot of time for gaming and painting over the last couple of weeks. I think I was just resting after frantically getting the planes ready for CY6! and finishing the Romans. I have managed to crank out the first 4 elements of my Magister Militum Seleucid DBA army, however. Again, I'm quite pleased with how fast ancients are to paint and how quickly tou can get through a DBA army. After all, these 4 bases are a full third of the whole! I really like the look of a phalanx, too, so I can't wait to expand them to an 8 base FoG battlegroup. The Magister Militum figures are superbly well detailed, too. They're a little chunkier than the Essex, but it's a style that I think really looks good.
I've also ordered the shield transfers and some stuff for the camps, so I should be up and running for DBA soon. Next up are the cataphracts which are primed and ready to go. They should be super easy...! :)

- I'm a bit of a born-again wargamer! I played many of the Games Workshop games when I was in my teens and early twenties, but left the hobby behind when I went to University. Over the last few years I have gradually got back into it and am literally having a ball! I'll play pretty much anything now, ranging from ancient historical to the far future! I think that I get more out of the painting side of things than actually playing, but that might just be because I get more opportunity. Hence the title...this blog is all about the colour of war!!
