Army Advice

Postby loafofcheese » Mon May 19, 2014 4:25 am

So I want to do an Italian inspired army, but have no idea how to do it in a practical sense. I would ideally just have police in pirate hats for a carabinieri squad, but I think that would look too similar to Scratch's Police State of Venice. Any ideas?

I've played Rise of Legends, and I think I might have enough tan and brown to pull off a clockwork or steampunk aesthetic, but I'd like to do something from around either Mussolini or Vittorio Emanuele II's reign, as they will probably be cheaper than loads of pirate and castle figs.

I still own a hardcopy of it, and play it every so often.
