Got my box yesterday with the sun of macedon and the price of failure too....

superb minis... much better than I hoped for and should paint up excellently!

I did have 1 broken one... a sword... but I found the polystyrene glue for model makers fixed it very easily so if anyone has same issue use the poly glue.

Is there a list anywhere of which model represents which general?

and a download of the rules would be great so I can print myself a set for bedtime reading without damaging the originals!

You do have the cards and the octogonal tiles of the generals?

On both components you can see the pictured general, the name of the general and his strategy and battle ratings (number in circle and square).

Based on the picture of the general on the card and the tile, you can easily find its corresponding model, not? Every general has a specific pose, armour, weaponry... not that difficult, is it?

But, remember that some minis are used for totally different generals from 1st and 2nd Punic Wars

You have 23 minis and 43 generals cards. So in many scenarios you must use the same mini for different person.

Some general models do represent two different generals (one in Hannibal and one in Hamilcar scenario's), so if you print labels or paint the name on the bases, you will have models with two names on it...

EDIT: ninja'd already...

Thanks Jonathan! Great job with fixing your mini. This is what we would advise - super glue is great with this type of minis.

I also like the fact, that you rate the minis high. We also like the quality.

Please make sure to not label the generals. They are mulipurpose

And please show pics of them painted!

Cheers!

Jaro

phew! I hadn't realised they are multipurpose... dodged a bullet.. or should I say a arrow on that one! thanks gents.


Will defo put a picture up of painted figures.... and the hard plastic is perfect as it doesn't bend and damage the paint. I didn't use super glue, just a plastic glue which bonded the 2 bits together no problem at all!

Love the dice too, nice heavy feel to them which is perfect for me.

Think I will paint the expansion models first...
here goes!

Don't want to panic too soon but the game was supposed to be delivered today and UPS status of the delivery is "person no longer works at this firm".

so goodbye beautiful game for you, Kris! devil

however, I'll let you gaze a bit on my copy next time if you'd like to?


Spoiler (click to reveal)
