I intend to use them for both Impetus and also Dux Bellorum but who knows may end up trying then with Hail Caesar too. All figures are on 12cm wide bases but depth varies:
- Cavalry: 8cm
- Light Foot/ archers etc: 6 cm
- Heavy foot: 5 cm (this gives an additonal 1cm to protect spears etc, so is slightly deeper than the suggested 4cm in the rulebook)
- Skirmishers: 3cm
Figures vary too depending on the troop type..
- Heavy Cav: 4-5
- Medium Cav: 4
- Light Cav: 3
- Heavy Foot: 7-8
- Light foot: 6-8
- Skirmishers: 3
My 350pt Western Steppe Huns will be (at least initially):
Average command( 12 pts)
2x average leaders (40 pts)
- 1xCP Sciri (Gen) - 21 pts
- 2x CM Nobles- 62 pts
- 4x CL Mounted Archers- 108 pts
- 2x CP Cavalry (Gen) - 42pts
- 3x FP Foot - 36 pts
- 2x S Archers -12 pts
And so here is a start. I'll continue with them tomorrow night when the permafilla has dried. The Cavalry are Gripping Beas, most of the infantry are Muskteer (I think) with a few Gripping Beast plastic Saxons.
4x Hunnish Light Cavalry
1x CM General (Gripping Beast)
3x Gepid Warband (Mainly Musketeer miniatures). I based up some javelinmen as I wasn't sure if i preferred 3c of 4 cm deep skirmisher stands- I decided to go with the 3cm deep ones.
And half an hour later with the permafilla applied the first stage of basing was completed.
I need to get some more armoured Huns (I'm tempted to go Foundry for these), some bow armed skirmishers, and a few other bits and pieces to complete the army.
