List Building for Justinian Byzantines

The first Byzantine (or perhaps the last “Roman”) list in ADLG’s roster of armies is one which covers some of the Empires greatest victories, and which spans the career of one of their greatest generals, Belisarius.

But despite that historic success the Justinians are often overlooked, especially when set against other, later Byzantine lists which can be stuffed with many more interesting wargamer-friendly exotic troop types! This video podcast seeks to redress that balance a little, digging into what on the surface can look like the slim pickings of choice in the Justinian list.

As usual I’m joined by Richard and Dave as we look at 4 separate Justinian lists, all quite different in their utilization and design, as well as delving into the military history of this “last of the Romans” army before finally taking a quick trot through the many different options for buying the right figures to build your own army on the tabletop.

All of the figure images in this podcast can be found in the 15mm Photo Gallery, with some provided by kind permission of the manufacturers. This video podcast is also available in an audio-only version which you can stream or download from your regular podcast platform by searching for the Madaxeman Podcast.

The lists featured in this video can be found on the Madaxeman ADLG Wiki, and the first two of the lists featured also appear in a “pre-setup battle” on Tabletop Simulator available at allowing you to compare them in action yourself !
