Brisbane Muster

Here are some images of the game I put on over last weekend of June at the Brisbane Muster. I based the game on the invasion of Egypt by the Macedonian Royal army sent to punish Ptolemy for stealing the body of Alexander III. The game was set in the Nile Delta and saw over 1100 foot and cavalry on the table as well as 9 elephants. I felt that Impetus did a fantastic job of managing this huge game and Bob and I had a great two days and I as Ptolemy managed to pip him at the post once again.

The armies are split 50-50 from my and Nathan Vinson's collection, Nathan allowed my to borrow his massive collection and I have spent the last few weeks rebasing it for Impetus and ensuring that it has the same basing scheme as my collection. I have added a few dead elephants to some of his bases etc. which Impetus encourages. The figures are a mix of Foundry, 1st Corps, Vendel, BTD, Old Glory and some venerable Naismith figures. Cheers Scott

WOW....Scott that is a fantastic. Shame I could not have made the trip, I hate missing out on a good game. ...Maybe next year.

The re-basing looks great, John has been getting leroy to rebase all his figures as well.

Do you feel like doing a few Classical Indians?
