28mm Reconquista - BTD Archers

With my schedule returning to normal after a week away (well, near normal; daughter's wedding is this weekend), I managed a few hours each evening to pick up the brush and work on the Reconquista project.

The first result of the evening meditation is one stand of Moorish archers.  Like other, recent missile troop stands, I chose to place a couple of flanking spearmen on the stand.




A similar missile stand of crossbowmen is nearing completion.

To inject something different into the project, I picked up several packs of camel cavalry from BTD.  The beasts are quite large and the rider looks diminutive sitting atop the dromedary.  These will be a fun little painting diversion and offer an interesting element to the project.  I have enough camels to field two, four figure units of medium camelry.


I ordered several packs of cavalry (both horse and camel) on the 22nd and the order arrived on the 25th!  That is really terrific service.  I continue to receive excellent service from BTD USA even though complaints can still be found on TMP.  Fortunately for me, I have never had any issues with BTD USA.

  1. Great work! Looks like your going to try to win by swamping your opponent.

    I can't wait to see the camels. Are there any special rules about them in Impetus? I can't remember.

    1. Hi Monty. Quantity has a quality all its own, right?

      As far as I can see, the only special rule is that camels are not susceptible to Impetus bonus from other mounted troops. That could be quite handy!

    2. Ooh, good one. Plus, they'll just be ++ cool to look at.

  2. Don't knock the impetus rob - that takes the sting out of a lot of CP in the game.

    Looking great!

    1. Thanks, FMB!

      I agree. Camels will be a potent counter to CP.
