Got some pics of my Tumbling Dice Thracians for you. Sorry about the glare, the shots are a tad over-exposed. I’ll get some more up when I finish a couple more elements.
First up is my camp. This is going to be a gold mine, which the Thracians were known for. Does it look anything like a Thracian gold mine? Nope, but it gets the job done. I am going to build a small box with gold in it and put that next to a hoplite that I am adding to the scene. In the background you can see my general and his companions.
Here is an element of light horse, again, sorry about the brightness.
Here is everything I had done at the time of the photos. I have since finished my command element. You can see a psiloi fig mounted for painting in the background.
One last picture of them all lined up.
I am really excited to field these guys on the 15th of this month. I have been play-testing them on DBAOL for a couple of weeks. They are hard to learn, but once you get the dance down, it’s a wonderful thing to behold. Some things coming up for the blog: A list of upcoming painting projects. I will be looking at what I need for Historicon, and maybe Origins. I will also be working on the Fanaticus Worldwide DBA Campaign blog. I am also going to do a series of articles on how to get into the DBA hobby if you don’t come from a war-gaming or mini-painting hobby. Look for some strategy articles also.
Can anyone guess who that is? No, it’s not Kris Christopherson!
