Punic Wars Commission -- Fini

Glenn, my patron for this commission, arrived in beautiful Coeur d'Alene yesterday.  Jon and Matt joined us today, and we got in two games of Commands and Colors Ancients with the complete armies.

Glenn left my house an hour ago with a trunk full of painted miniatures, and I'm sure he will enjoy gaming with them for years, for decades, to come!

I'm sad to see the figures go, but happy to be done with the largest single project I have ever tackled.  Tomorrow I go back to work as a high school teacher after five years as stay at home dad.

I'll have pictures of the complete armies on the blog tomorrow or Tuesday, and I'll see if I can't get a battle report posted as well.


  1. Thank you Scott.
    You're a great host and a great painter.
    The figures are actually even more amazing when seen in person.
    Hard to believe, but the bolg pictures don't do your artistry justice. These two armies are the most incredible I have ever seen.

    I think that you and I have to host a game at Little Wars and/ or Historicon this coming year.

  2. Scott, when are you going to return to painting Blue Moon Civil War figures? Your excellent side-by-side review of 15mm ACW figures was very, very helpful to me. Since reading your blog, I decided to sell off my old ACW miniatures and replace them with Blue Moons. Since that time, I've painted close to 700 figures and they look fantastic. Thanks again for your review.

  3. Congratulations. I am looking forward to seeing the photos of such a grand army!

  4. Don, I always seem to return to ACW, but right now I do not have any on my bench.
