Medium Gun 21 Points

Medium Gun 21 Points

Light Gun 17 Points

A total of 1695 points.

That's a fairly hefty force to go on a tabletop though! (Especially considering most games down the club have been 500 points. Perhaps it'll be for a weekend or full day's game should we ever get a venue Shall check if I have enough toys to do it. Definitely have enough infantry, unsure about the cavalry but I shall count horses tonight.

Working out from above I need the following:

5 Commanders (including the King and Rupert) which I have already, what size bases have we used down the club so far? I'll try and keep it the same

42 bases of pikemen (4 models per base(40mmx40mm)) including 10 sergeants, ensigns and commanders

60 bases of Musketeers (4 models per base (40mmx40mm))

12 bases of Firelocks (1 model per base 20mmx20mm)

72 bases of cavalry (2 models per base (50x50mm)) including 12 trumpets, standards and commanders

6 bases of Cuirassiers (2 models per base(50mmx50mm)) including 1, trumpet, standard and commander

2 medium gun bases (50 x 50mm)

1 Light Gun base (40x40mm)

works out as 420 individual infantry models, 156 Cavalry, 3 cannon and crew and 5 Commanders (+ assorted toadies for their bases) Not too much to paint

All in all a lot of metal and plastic and a smidgen of resin

This is currently sitting at 2 on my painting list, behind the blake's seven miniatures and spacecraft which need to be done for next month. Being very repetitive though, it's going to be interrupted by other projects to stop me going insane! Thoughts, opinions? Personally, I think I've got too much infantry there so if I was to drop it to 1000 points that's where they'd go from as the balance is wrong at the moment, there should be more horse than infantry (8000 vs 7000 at the original battle)Medium Gun 21 Points
