- 4x heavy infantry
- 3x pikes
- 1x crossbows
I think I will also standardise with a 6cm depth for all infantry except skirmishers which will be on 5cm deep bases.
Ive also decided to stick to 6 figures per base- 4 in the front rank and 2 in the rear. It seems to make the stands look more dynamic and so in future will be doing this with most of my infantry.
I also completed the 4 bases of Rohan infantry
Conquest is now only a couple of months away and I've started to consider Flames of War forces to take. Apparently it will be 1750 pts late war, although this has not been confirmed. I'm really not a fan of late war, and definitely not of 1750 pts but may go as I have played in six of the seven Flames of War competitions at Conquest and the only one I did not play in I ran a multiplayer Arnhem demo game (2007).
So with that in mind its time to start getting in the odd practice game and also start thinking about possible lists. I am seriously tempted to take something Soviets as they are still one of my favourite armies. I am considering the following:
- Rota Razvedki
I like the idea of increasing the Cossack force I used at Day of Days into a full fledged competition force (Day of Days being our Firestorm Bagration Campaign earlier in the year) and think it could be fun to run so those two forces probably have the inside running at present.
Laely, ive been concentrating on mechanised forces (panzer grenadiers and rota) so some cossacks might be a nice change. I've four intial lists sorted, one for each army type and it will be a matter of experimenting vs different German forces to see which I prefer.
However, I'm not discounting the possibility of something German either- possibly Fallschrimjager, panzer grenadiers or even a Sturm company. But I'm not really looking at my German options yet.
