Ok I know, I dont post as much as you would like, especial if your initials are JP....
Well, work progresses on the 10mm Old Glory
and the RSM95 figures have arrived, with a final payment to HMGovt of £30.91, bringing the grand total in at £166.10, or 57pence a figure, for what are really nice castes, next order will be for 10 bags of infantry and some mounted officers.
So now some reading has happened and the figures are infront of me.... i need to finalise my choice of Unit size and how i am gonna be basing the little fellows. The problem is when ever you ask an OSWargamer they only say "there is wrong way...... " which is al very liberating and also frustrating.
Overall Unit size is 48 troops and mounted Colonel with the Standards on a seperate Base
The Blue army will be 3 companys of 12 musketeers and a forth of 12 Grenadiers
The White army will be 3 companys of 16 musketeers
Cavalry will be in 4 figure squadrons
Artillery a single gun with 6 crew
Infantry 20mm square dividual bases Or 3 figures on a 50mmx25mm
Cavalry 50mmx25mm individual or multiple
Artillery 100mmx 100mm when deployed..... oh, Limbered..hmmm there is a thought
I like to use GW plastic Bases usually.... but i have doubts for this project
Ihavent written the rules yet, so that wont help
and i have just picked up Heroscape from Argos (£7.99) and the mechanichs are so simple they are almost Old School.....
So comment please, espcially if you can help.... my gut raction is to go for singles on the Infantry and pairs on the Cavalry
Sold Wargames Armies are like Ex's
