A Few More Moors

A foursome of Moorish horsemen make it out from the painting desk.  After picking up a bundle of BTD cavalry from the late fall sale, I need to work my way through the pile of Reconquista cavalry.  One quartet of Arab cavalry pulled out from the painting desk in December and this stand follows not too far behind.
One more stand of Arab cavalry is on the workbench to follow closely on its heels.  Before that third Moorish cavalry stand is called up for service, a Spanish heavy cavalry stand will muster out.  With balance of power in the cavalry arm leaning decidedly towards the Arabs, many more Spanish or Christian cavalry need to see action at the painting table to even the odds.
Under Impetvs, this stand will rate as 'CM' which I denote using four figure stands.  Looking at my painting log, seven units for the project were added in 2016.  All but one unit was cavalry.  Still, many many more cavalry remain in The Lead Pile.
When will the collection see action on the gaming table?  Sometime in 2017 with a testing of Basic Impetvs 2.0.

    1. One more quartet of these horsemen are on my painting desk now. Then, I ought to field some Christian Spanish cavalry to rebalance the forces.
