Miniature Minions is devoted to my armies based for De Bellis Antiquitatis and its napoleonic variant DBN, with a smattering of old school figures hopefully brought to life with a little love and a lot of effort!
A Brief Word About Me
Some of my earliest childhood memories center around my fascination with toy soldiers. From my first Airfix plastics and Roco Mini Tanks to the discovery of Napoleonic wargaming whilst living in Oxford. Hinchliffe Napoleonics were my first metal miniatures, purchased at Howe's Model Shop. On my return to Tennessee, I discovered Minifigs and very shortly thereafter Ral Partha Miniatures. Now, later in life, I am finally able to indulge in collecting and painting miniatures I could never afford in my youth - much to the chagrin of my dear spouse of thirty years! Having two wonderful kids in college keeps me from going too far off the deep end, but still the metal mountain has grown far larger than I can ever hope to paint!
The Old Glory Camillan Roman's are quite a bargain. I found the figures to be quite well sculpted, especially in comparison to their Greek and Italians. I will eventually have a BBDBA army of these guys, and the number of figures you get with each bag lends itself nicely to a triple strength army. I got these on sale, but was unable to find a bag of psiloi, so I purchased the psiloi from Crusader. Can't say enough about the quality of the figures and the service I received from Crusader in the UK.
