|A horde of 4cm Veteran Elastolins reported for duty today. Romans, Huns, Vikings, Prince Valiant & medieval figures and siege equipment.|
Rather unusually I found myself in a position to take advantage of a chance to aquire a collection of Elastolins from the friend of a friend who was having to downsize things. Now strictly speaking, having finally had the chance to scratch my elastolin itch over the last decade by picking up a few here and a few there, all I really needed a was a couple of mounted knights. I didn't need to double my collection but sometimes the self indulgent thing is also the right thing to do. I hope the joined collection also finds a welcome when the time comes.
I'm fairly sure I don't want to run solo Medieval Mayhem games with 300 figures on the table so I'm considering my options. The late medieval figures and handful of landsknechts will join the 40mm Gathering of Hosts crowd on their 6cm square bases and Prince Michael and Hengist and their friends will stay on single bases in their setting. What is up in the air is whether I should pursue an OS massed combat system for single figures with Prince Michael crossing to the continent to fight the Huns and their various Germanic barbarian allies or whether the Huns should be the nucleus of an element based Gathering of Hosts army.
The other question is how long until the siege equipment meets a castle wall?
