Claymore Wargames Show 2022


Our 'The Immortals" table at the Claymore Wargames show today. Figures from the collections of Brian Phillips and myself. All figures are Aventine and Victrix 28mm. We have managed to collect about 2k between us in the last 3 years or so. The rules we used are being developed by Nichol Murray. 

Brilliant day with great company. My thanks to my fellow 'Immortals'  Brian, Nichol, Andy, Peter and Andy, for working hard to actually game this.

We got a great response to the game and we are planning to take this game out again in the future.

The Immortals

Here are some images of the ancients game our gaming group 'The Immortals' had at the weekend. 

Figures are all 28mm Victrix and Aventine from the collections of Brian Phillips and myself. We used Nichol Murray's ancients version of his Medieval rules. The game was inspired by the battle of Pydna 168BC. Macadonian Successors Vs Republican Romans.

Brian and I have been collecting these figures for the last few years, between us we have about 2k figures for the period. I have focused on the Romans and Brian on the Successors but we have figures for each sides in our Collections. The large game mat was made for myself by Thomas Foss and detailed with some static grass by myself. The table is roughly 13.5 foot long.

The game was a test run for the large game we (The Immortals Gaming Group) are displaying at the Claymore wargames show this Saturday the 6th August 2022.  

We are looking forward to the second outing on Saturday but for those of you that can't get the Claymore show in Edinburgh on are some images.

 I have been painting up some new Claymore Castings figures today. I'm single basing these for the Claymore Castings website, however with Lion Rampant V2 appearing, these will do for skirmish games.

 I'll try and paint a few of the new dismounted horse archers tomorrow as they are fantastic...but here are a couple of images of the new javelin armed Skirmishers.

The new dismounted horse archers..

Some other single based figures from Claymore castings...

A work in progress image of the dismounted cavalry unit. Apparently they did this to stiffen up the Infantry battle lines. Aventine Miniatures with LBM transfers used.
