The way in which the Perry Miniatures' War of the Roses boxes are configured, I can field one Battle's worth of bill and bow from one box. To complete a Battle, 13 figures from the Men-at-Arms' box are needed. As the number of Battles grows and my suboptimal planning kicks in, I end up with a surplus of Men-at-Arms figures.
What to do?
Typically, each 52 figure Battle is fielded at one time. Rather than wait until the next order from Perry arrives, I crack on with the MAA components. The bill and bow complement will straggle in at a later date. Until those stragglers arrive, work goes forward.
Off the painting desk today are 26 Men-at-Arms figures for two Battles. These are MAA for Somerset and Clifford. Flags are Pete's Flags.
On deck for Monday is the Franco-Austrian War battle of San Martino in 15mm. While this northern part of the Battle of Solferino has seen action before, I have never hosted it remotely nor on a grid. There have been some revisions to the rules and scenario to fit the number of players, remote gaming, and a grid. Actually, a new ruleset will be in play for this action. More details on the game setup before Monday.
