Following up on the three Reconquista units completed in November, one more Impetvs stand makes its way off from the painting desk. This time, one stand of Muslim archers. Figures are BTD.
Some of the El Cid Army Lists require the combining of one archer stand with one stand of spear to form one large unit. Currently, spear stands outnumber missile (or archer) stands. To address that imbalance, and provided I field no more spear units (ha!), at least one more bow stand is needed.
After a couple of quick games of Commands & Colors: Napoleonics with Scott and Kevin last night, dinner conversation turned towards holiday game planning. With Kevin and Scott yet to try Impetvs, they suggested an Impetvs game before Christmas. Period chosen? Punic Wars. OK!
The first and only Punic Wars Impetvs game occurred NOV2013. Since that game, about a half-dozen units have been added to the project. With a second game on the horizon in two weeks, perhaps, I can knock out one or two more units to add into the fray?
In addition to other assorted projects on the painting desk, one stand of Celtic warriors is undergoing the brush. This unit of Celts is the first Celtic representation for the project. The figures are not surprisingly from BTD and should be finished in a couple painting sessions.
As for the C&C: Napoleonics games, Plancenoit was played twice to conclusion. Both games resulted in a Prussian victory with the second game a much closer contest than the first.
