Years and years ago now, I found a number of packs of Alternative Armies' Erin miniatures in a bargain bin at Gamescape in San Francisco. Great old store, it was then. I had little use for the minis at the time, but I loved them and painted a bunch of them just for fun.
A year or so ago, I finally picked up a copy of the rules and started trying to assemble war bands for them. Then the deployment happened and my wild and woolly war bands of Celtic Myth had to go into boxes to await my return.
The only minis I didn't have many of were the Sidhe, but recently I found this pack on Ebay for a pittance and couldn't resist. Here are a few snaps of the core of my future Sidhe war party.
The Erin game seems to be a fairly standard skirmish minis game, plot driven, character-centered, with 'armies' of between ten and twenty miniatures, set in the era of of the Invasions. Best part is the nice old Alternative Armies Minis and the buckets of ancient Irish flavor. Keen to get back and go a-questing!
