To quote Ken...

The reason they came about was because you can get all the inf. for a Spanish DBA army out of one box of HAT light infantry and I am a cheapskate. There were always too many slingers so it seemed like a good idea. The heavy cav I will make from the Cart. command box which is probably the best value box in the whole series IMHO.

One thing that made a difference was the loctite glue. To give you an idea of how strong it is, on the slinger figure I just bent his left arm down without any heat and stuck it to his thigh and it held. It really is amazing stuff.

My favourite bits are the shields which I made from plastic lids using a 'leather' hole punch and them just pinned them on.

The hole punches I picked up at a local market for about 1.00 each and they come in a range of sizes ideal for all those round shields. You can also cut a circle then cut a the middle out to get a crescent shaped pelta.

Cool, eh?!
