A busy night tonight. I've managed to rebase 2x units of Russian infantry to the new standard and must say I love the look of the 24 figure battalions so I guess I now have to accept that I'll be painting more figures per unit. The overall look is well worth it though and the units look more Napoleonic than the previous system. I have a few more figures to paint to get back to 8 battalions of Grenadiers which means I will need to paint another 4 battalions worth at some point before too much longer.
As well as rebasing, painting, flocking and adding some scenic grass clumps I managed a game of Impetvs vs Kent. Dave and I ran my standard Seljuk force vs Kent & Stephen using Kent's Crusaders.
2x 3 light horse commands
2x Seljuk Nobles
4x skirmishers (shortbow)
1x light troops (javelins)
Kent's command had:
2x Armenian light Horse
Stephen ran something like:
3 foot knights
3 foot sergeatns
Crusaders on the left, the Seljuks on the right. Kent massed his knights vs Dave's light horse- or more accurately we massed our light horse vs Kent's knights.
The Ghulums charge the Crusader general but become stuck in an inconclusive battle.
Great game guys, lots of fun as always
