Really, there's nothing as awesome as zombies vs. Romans. This is amazing. I've probably imagined something like this in my mind a thousand times. Thanks for bringing it to life!

Thanks for the links! I certainly do like the old style pen and paper RPGs (have quite a few shelves full of manuals, modules, sourcebooks, adventures, etc.) This looks pretty fun. I haven't bought anything new in a while, so I might have to check this one out. Thanks again!

Really great color.
But it irks me that people switches their shield to their right hand. There's a reason to carry it on the left.

BadbrushArt Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014
Glad you liked it. Its on the right for composition mostly, if it was a wall of shields facing the Romans then the piece would look much more static. Having said that left handed fighters were pretty good for storming fortification and going up stairs :D.

theroyalscouter Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well depends o how the stairs are built. Spirals goings clockwise up are more suited to be defended with a shield on the left, and attacked from bellow with a shield on the left. So you are right on that.
I get it that is for compositions sake. It still irks me, but I won't bash on your work. If it meant to look like that, it meant to look like that.

What if you're left-handed?
Reply
:icontheroyalscouter:
theroyalscouter Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Doesn't matter. It's about formation.
You can leave an opening by placing a shield besides a shield without a weapon in between. And you don't want two guys thrusting swords nears each others arm.
It's not about the hand you are most skilled with. If the majority has the shield on the left then everyone does.

Example
"U" <-shield   "I" <-sword   M<- enemy

IU-IU-IU-IU-IU
M-M-M-M-M-M
 Here is the normal formation whichever side the enemy strafes to there is a sword. Except the left side of the entire formation obviously 

IU-IU-IU-M-UI
      M-M-M-M-M-M
This one is by far the worst, as it creates a point without danger where the enemy just needs to push in between the shields to break the line.

UI-IU-IU-IU-IU
M-M-M-M-M-M-
In this one there two sword, but both can cut each other arm when thrusting. But it's relatively safe if it happens in the end of the formation

This last one is what happens when the guy with the shield in the wrong hand is in the middle of the formation

IU-IU-IU-IU-IU-IU-M-UI-IU-IU-IU
-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M--M-M-M
You get a enemy that avoids a the zones that has to swords and charges through the side with two shields. And once divided
                     M-M-M-M-M-M

IU-IU-IU-IU-IU-IU-M-M-UI-IU-IU-IU
         M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M

You get killed.

This is Historically accurate.
There is strategic reason on forcing shields on the same side. Not a personal preference on which hand you are most skilled with.

I got what you meant by the first paragraph; but a full on explanation is nice too.
I imagine left-handed people would just train to use their other hand; it's not impossible.

I didn't notice the guy on the right side of the artwork; I was looking at the zombie with the axe, who wouldn't be bothered by strategy; but the guy on the right is a whole different matter, especially if fighting zombies. :)

theroyalscouter Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah that's the guy. And you are correct they would train to use their right hand. I just felt like explaining the matter visually, one doesn't get that chance too often.
Yeah I don't think zombies care about formations and strategy either XD
