Stayed home today as my kid has a fever and can’t go to school. I’m really glad I can use sick time like this. She’s watching a Wallace & Gromit video so I took a few minutes away from tending to her and chores to count my painted 1/72 minis. This time I distinguished among infantry, cavalry, chariotry, and elephants. A few camp followers and litter bearers got stuck in with the infantry.
Grand total: 2386.
This includes six Ral Partha Iroquois, three RP gendarmes, and three Minifigs Mamluks, all “true” 25mm and very close to 1/72 scale. I did not count a few static diorama “camps” and some artillery and war wagons, but there is less than a dozen of those.
These guys range from Sumerians to Conquistadors, the bulk being Medieval (Europe, Crusades, Mongols, and Japanese), Classical (Greco-Roman-Celtic), and Biblicals (Egypt, Hebrew, Philistine, Lybian, Nubian, etc.). I have a lot that are still unpainted, but will probably begin to cull them soon.
Anybody interested in 100 or so 1/72 scale Vikings?
Some time I’ll figure out exactly how many different DBA armies this represents. Going by the rule of thumb that you need about 50 figures per army, that’s 47 armies. But of course I make a lot of my chariots do double duty in various armies so I don’t think I could really field that many “legal” armies at once. Still, sounds like I could run a tourney if I had enough table space and terrain.
