The start of my 28mm Sassanids from A&A miniatures (2x elephants and some barded cavalry) arrived today so I am now in 28m elephant overload! Not sure where the rest of the order is at this stage but hopefully arrives in the next few days.
Kent is busy working on his 28mm Imperial Romans so I think I might try to get the Sassanids completed for our Impetus demo game at TAGCON as we will be able to have 2x commands per side by combining my Romans with his and possibly adding some Arab or Numidian allies to the Sassanids.
I also received some BlackTree Design Arab infantry & Norman knights which I'd forgotten I'd ordered but did so to take advantage of their summer sale. The Arabs are a bit chunkier than the Perry range but heightwise seem okay so they'll do for my city milita for the Syrians.
If I recall correctly I got the Norman knights to start my Crusader force and will bulk them up with some Crusader Miniatures figures in time.
So the backlog grows faster than I can paint (again)
Edit- and the semi-finished products- tonight's painting job.
Very nice models- a bit of assembly involved as the elephants are about 9 pieces (including the 5 part howdah) but well worth the effort.
The figures are nicely proportioned and moulded, easy to paint and have good detail. I am looking forward ot painting the rest of this force and will be using A&A again!
