I have applied to run 2 games. I am hoping to be accepted as a game master but there are a lot of talented gamers out there. The first is Legnano.
If I get my first choice it will be a Day of Battle game the tile of which is the Battle of “Legnano“. This battle takes place min later medieval Italy. It pitches a large for of German and mercenary knights heading on a road to jpin their main army. The force is blocked by a highly motivated Italian City state militia army.
This will be run for up to 6 players in 28mm scale.
I have started to play test the scenario, here are a few pictures. I will post an after action report as another post.
I just finished up 24 Norman foot for my Lion Rampant army. These are put out by Old Glory.
I painted them for my Lion Rampant army. I base these using the new basing scheme that Lion rampant uses and you will see this when you look at the pictures. I have decided to adopt this basing method for my Light Bobs troops and I can press my Lion rampant troops into my Day of Battle armies when needed.
Up until a year ago I always painted my bases a medium green that I had mixed at the Depot. I used this paint for my table top so it gave my game a very consistent look. Recently though I have deviated from that and come up with my own procedure for terraining my bases.
After reading “The Green Dragoon” and reviewing it I decided to round out my Tarleton’s legions green dragoons.
I had one unit of 6 green dragoons and a few stray mounted figures. I didn’t want to buy a pack of dragoons for just a few miniatures so I took a tip from Pikeman’s Lament. Some of the players with that game include dismounted troops on their dragoon bases. I had a good assortment of legion infantry left so I did just that.
