|I have tried to replicate in miniature a picture I found online of Pyrrhus, complete with Leopard skin saddle blanket!|
Compared to Alexander (whom he greatly admired and was related to on his mother’s side) Pyrrhus was ultimately a failure. He failed to achieve his overall strategic aims against Macedonia, failed to win against the Romans and was eventually killed in battle while attacking the city of Argos. But for all this he was described as an inspired leader, was one of the first serious threats to the early Rome Republic, campaigned successfully in Southern Italy, Sicily and Greece and wrote several well respected books (now lost) on the art of war.
I made a slightly larger base for this larger than life General. Other lesser Generals are based on round bases as usual while individual heroes are based singly and on smaller round bases.
So we have 10 mounted figures and six infantry so this lot should net me a tidy 13 points.
MilesR: Great command groups and heroes - still waiting to see the full group shot
