Finally: DBA in the livingroom

Yesterday I finished my first DBA-Gameboard for 25mm. Since the regular board is a bit too small for my liking I made mine about 98x98cm. The board fits on to our livingroom coffeetable and I can pack it away . With the pictures you get an idea of the size of the board. But there's still some work to be done: I still have to build a shoreline or a waterway (my Sicilians defend on littoral terrain and I'd like to create another gameboard with a more arid appearance for battles around the mediterranean (sanddunes?). And sometime last week I rebased all my 25mm minis onto regular bases with the required 60mm frontage. Contrary to my expectations the armies look far better now then with the former, larger bases (90mm frontage). They acually look real! Wow, I love this game! And now I can set up in our livingroom and it still remains a livingroom (We tested it).

This blog is dedicated to ancient and medieval miniature wargaming. I'd like to share pictures of my painted armies and models, self made terrain-pieces and sketches of projects still residing in my head or on a piece of paper.
My main interest at the moment is creating armies and accessories, researching for historical or made-up scenarios and campaigns for the fast-play wargaming rules from "De bellis Antiquitatis" (DBA) with 25mm and 15mm figurines.
I use the blog-format rather unconventionaly. It is more like a scrapbook. And I update the older posts so keep checking. I recommend utilizing the labels to the left. So if your just interested in miniatures click the "Miniatures"-label and you will be presented with posts concerning painting, figurines etc. And don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom of the page for more. And many thanks for commenting!
