Armenian Reinforcements

After slacking round for the last few weeks I actually did some painting last night. My game the other day I needed some Turcopoles to use as lighter Armenian Cavalry so painted up a couple of stands last night and rebased 2 stands worth or Crusader Miniatures Norman crossbowmen as well.






Other things I'm looking forward to...

I have recently received my Ebob Mongols (they need to be made soon list) but am REALLY  looking forward to the new Mongols from Fire Fore games. The Mongols are one of my favourite armies and are somewhat under represented on the gaming table.
 
 Can't wait till they are released

    1. Thanks Mark- local beach sand is the base for the basing

  3. What's the go with the crossbows for basing, do you do 8x4cm for S and 8x5 for T? and how many figures would you use for modelling?
    I'm just trying to gauge if I can get away with putting 4 models on an 8x5 and using it for both types...?

    Yours are looking very cool BTW.

    The mongols will be a welcome addition to the plastics out there

  4. Hi Andy

    I used to use 6cm depth (same as or light foot) but recently we have gone to 5cm basing (same as heavy foot) and 4cm for skirmishers. Kent has started putting 3 figs rather than 4 on for crossbows etc too so have done that with these guys thought most of my "T" have 4 figs. I am toying with the idea of figs if VBU 3 and 4 if VBU 4 but haven't done that- instead I'll use armoured for VBU 4 and unarmoured for VBU 3.

  5. Thanks mate,
    I'll run with 4 on each for my T stands of vbu4 crossbow,
    although I haven't played with the xbows yet, they look like an awesome unit on paper :)
    Keep the Ancients and medieval posts coming, they are inspiring my painting ;)
