Following up on the Celtic warband of last week, two units of Celtic cavalry trot out from the painting desk. The two stands muster out as medium cavalry suitable for either Impetvs or To the Strongest! Figures are from Crusader Miniatures.
With four BMUs of Celtic cavalry now available for battle, the core of the Celtic cavalry contingent for Telamon may be in place. If needed, another two BMUs of Germanic cavalry can be pressed into service to fill out the ranks. Spanish heavy horse could see action too if the OB requires more cavalry. I really should begin looking closely at the force strengths and begin refining an OB. After focusing much of my attention on fielding Celts, I may find I need to call up more Romans for battle. With one more Celtic warband in work, I will pull the collection together and put together a representative battle plan. Am I nearly completion? I think so. Time to find my source material on Telamon and build the Order of Battle and a scenario. Will the battle be fought using Impetvs or To the Strongest? Perhaps both but TtS! is more recently in mind.
Work at the painting desk was brisk last week. A couple of hundred 10mm ACW infantry saw action as did more work on the 30mm ECW project. One of the units for the ECW project included the first glimpse of 1st Corps' expanding ECW range. The 1st Corps' cavalry figures in work are very nice and seem to fit in well with the Redoubt cavalry that dominates the collection.
