From JuanM: 28mm Late Roman / Byzantine Infantry Command Stand (20 points)

Juan sends in this very nice 4th century Late Roman / Byzantine command stand to represent the beginnings of his Legio V Macedonia.

Great basework and I really like the Draco standard.
These castings are from the excellent 28mm Musketeer Miniatures range of models.

Juan will be using these for future games of 'Hail Caesar'. 

Nice effect on the commander's scale-mail.
These four lads will give him 20 points. Great stuff, Juan!

Next up from Juan will be 16th century peasants, Swiss and Napoleonic Prussian Landwehr.

From IanW: 6mm Napoleonic French Hussars (36 points)

Ian sends in these wee lads from the 6th and 7th French Hussars.

Ian did a great job on capturing the effect of the lace.
These are 6mm Baccus figures. As much as I love the grandeur of 28mm Napoleonics I have a soft spot for these smaller scales as you can really capture the mass of the formations without them taking over an entire section of a playing surface.

These two groups of cavalrymen will give Ian 36 points. Nice work!

From FranL: 15mm Riot Police, Arms Dealers and Reporters (143 points)

Today's 'history' is reflected here in Fran's most recent submission. Here we have riot police with two support vehicles, snipers, vehicle crews, a pair of arms dealers (apparently for both sides of the conflict) and a batch of reporters to make sure it all shows up in HD while we're comfortably eating our dinners.

Both the 'Bulldog' Anti-Mine vehicles and the foot figures are from Peter Pig's 15mm ranges.

And on the left we have that famous 'mouth-breather' (as my wife likes to call him) Nicholas Cage selling his wares.
What's a modern war zone without a swarm of TV flunkies?

A group of IDF sniper teams.

This group of 41 figures and 2 vehicles will give Fran 143 points. Great work on some unique subject matter AND Fran, you now have passed Ray in the points standing. 

Now, this is going to get ugly (in a deliciously fun way). :)
