Napoleon Bonaparte said “An army marches on its stomach”. He meant it. A Roman legionary received 960 grams (over 2 pounds) of wheat every day, for bread or porridge. A single Republican legion had about 20000 men and armies ten times that size were commonly fielded even in the most remote times. For an army of that size the grain alone amounted to a couple hundred tons (the equivalent of some 320 ox-cart loads worth) of supplies to move every day. Plus wine, oil, meat, vegetables and other fresh food and then the were the tents, leather, cloth, iron to repair weapons, tools and equipment, personal belongins, loot... not to mention siege trains, the forage needed for all the animals who pulled the vehicles to carry all the above, etc. The supplies for the army were always a logistic nightmare, and even more so without the exceedingly efficent infrastructure the Romans or the Empereur were able to create. All this to say that while in a real army camp there always are mountains of supplies and stacked goods these so far have been missing from most gaming tables... well, we think it's high time to change that!

The humble items presented here are meant to help you detailing you camp and baggage scenes, but are also perfect for hundred other uses, work well for a large variety of periods and also with different scales, since most of these objects were employed in a very large variety of sizes.

There is a lot more supplies on the way for you, including figures and vehicles and even dedicated ships and buildings! And as usually, the best way to ensure we have adequate funding for speedy development is to hurry and get some of these now!!

 

Without supplies neither a soldier nor a general is good for anything.

15-28mm Ancient supplies (22 pcs.)

In the earliest times there were basically three ways to pack wares for transport: baskets, sacks, and amphorae. Wheat and other grains were usually transported in sacks but stored in earthenware pots. Amphorae were mostly used for liquids, wine and olive oil above all. Large jars and craters were used for drinking water. Pretty much everything else, including perishable fresh food were carried and kept in baskets.

15-28mm Generic supplies (18 pcs.)

As time went buy things changed very little, the items in this set would be at home in the camp of Ramesses as well as that of George Washington. Glass containers wer used for luxury items that came in smaller amounts. To make sure they won't break, they were carried into a chest filled with sand. Wooden storage chests were expensive and rare, but were used by the nobles and the high rank officers to transport their private belongings, valuable documents and expensive weapons, delicate tools and of course, jewels and money.

15mm Two Casks (of the good one!) (2 pewter figures + resin scenics)

This set is designed to be used in any army camp from Ancient Classical times to the late Middle Ages. The barrel as we know it today was most likely developed by the Celts. Around 350 BC they were already using watertight, barrel-shaped wooden containers that were able to withstand stress and could be rolled and stacked, but Herodotus already mentions palm-wood casks used in shipping Armenian wine to Babylon in Mesopotamia, so you can include it in your Biblical army baggage without fear of being historically inaccurate! The pack contains also two figures cast in lead free pewter, plus a small assortment of other resin items to complete the scene!

28mm Earthenware jars and vases (21 pcs.)

Pottery was produced in enormous quantities in ancient times, mostly for utilitarian purposes. Jars and vases like these were used as storage and transport vessels for anything from water to grain. Where baskets could be preferred for transport earthenware was best for storing food, as it kept out water, dirt, insects and rodents. Large pithos (plural pithoi) like the one to the right, filled with oil, were a major fire hazard and needed special protection: an enemy would only have to knock one over and set fire to it to destroy the whole place! Most of the great palaces of the Bronze Age Aegean were burned at one time or another in this way. How about that for a novel game objective!

28mm Amphorae (18 pcs.)

Amphorae were used in vast numbers to transport and store various products, both liquid and dry, in the ancient Mediterranean world and later the Roman Empire, and in some periods the shape was also used for luxury pottery, which might be elaborately painted (code LS3 include some of these). Most were produced with a pointed base to allow upright storage by being partly embedded in sand or soft ground. This also facilitated transport by ship, where the amphorae were tightly packed together, with ropes passed through their handles to prevent breaking or toppling during rough seas. In kitchens and shops amphorae could be stored in racks with round holes in them. Amphorae varied greatly in height. The largest could stand over 1.5 metres (5 ft) high; the standard Roman wine amphora held a about 39 litres (41 US qt). The large one on the right can also be used as a Krater.
Just perfect as game objectives or simply to dress up the scene!

28mm Ancient tableware (27 pcs.)

Fine wares were used as serving vessels or tableware for formal dining, and usually were heavily decorated and of elegant appearance. These were often traded over substantial distances like Roman glass, which the elite often used alongside gold or silver tableware, and which could be extremely expensive. The more expensive pottery often copied shapes and decoration from the more prestigious metalwork, so depending how you paint them most of these can be either ceramic, silver, bronze or glass...
