Project versatility

One of the reasons I was attracted to the Successors project, and the rationale behind the way I have approached it, is the interchangeability of many of the troops.

To illustrate, here the table is laid out with two armies facing each other...

And then the armies can combine to make a much larger force:

This will be the Macadamian army for The Bathelas Campaign with which I am involved via Henry Hyde, and a number of others.

Talking of Henry, I am due to be interviewed by the esteemed gentleman this Saturday for an upcoming Battlechat podcast. Looking forward to it.

Next week, I'm making finishing touches to some terrain and hopefully will dust off my old edition of WAB for a game, just to refresh myself on the rules. I'll post the odd picture...

Meantime, stay safe, and enjoy the hobby. It's a very positive, creative, and satisfying endeavour in these times of turbulence.


  1. Versatile army indeed. Looks great on the table.

  2. They look impressive in both photos. Difficult to imagine a more colourful array.

    It'll be great when the dice can be thrown in a real live game. Something to look forward to one day.

  3. Lovely...
    Certainly enough for a good litttle game...

    All the best. Aly

  4. Excellent looking army and well planned. Listened to your chat with Henry. Most enjoyable, especially the comments re Dave Jarvis and painting.
    I've broadly finished my C18th ImagiNation army and am planning on the opposition next (partly started). However, intend to take a leaf out of your book and have a set of units that have no clear flag/colour scheme affiliation to either side so I can use then to boost my main army for any big games and join up with the opposition as needed as I slowly build that force.

    Hope all well.

  5. Thanks all for your comments. Glad you enjoyed the Battlechat interview Andy.
    All the best.
