Alexander's Camp

Field of Glory requires that each army place its camp on the table.  That's one of the many things I like about the rules.  Many accounts of classical period battles mention the camps and how a threat to a camp could change a battle's outcome.

My Macedonian camp is pretty simple.  It's an unfortified camp, so I just used a Greek tent and various foodstuffs, all from Baueda, to make it look like a supply stockpile.  This is the first time I have ever used Baueda, and it's nice stuff.  These models cost me about $8.  I guess I could have tried to scratchbuild something, but I could never have made such beautiful amphorae.


  1. Nice work. The Baueda stuff is really good quality, but isn't cheap!

  2. Nice camp Scott. I too use Baueda for every Field of Glory or Impetus camp that I can.

  3. Really like this. Looks cool.

    I've been thinking about getting fortified camps for the Republican Roman and Carthaginian armies, and your post inspired me to pull the trigger and buy them from Dragon Painting Service on ebay.
