After the diversion of hosting the Port Republic game this past weekend, work resumes on the Reconquista Project. My compatriot, Jake, has been churning out Impetvs units with abandon. Some of his latest works can be seen at his blog (see Jinettes). Scrolling through Jake's list of completed units, I see I have some work to finish in order to remain close in the arms race.
Today's unit is a Black Guard infantry stand from Gripping Beast.
This was my first order to Gripping Beast and I am delighted with the quality of the figures. In the Impetvs lists, up to two such units may be fielded in an army. I think I'll order one more unit's worth of these, striking figures. Hopefully, their Spanish foes will be intimidated by their presence.
