Three days and three posts – just like buses. Update time for my Royalists who I’ve reorganised slightly (yes, again) to fit into the unit size of the Pike & Shotte armies which we’re using at the RGMB. I had to expand my shotte sleeves to do this, from 8 men each to 12, which matches what everyone else is using, and also does look much more impressive on the battlefield. To do this I had to purchase some Warlord musketeers, which I did last year, and combine them with the Renegade ones which were previously forming my Forlorn Hope. This worked nicely, and I used the rest of the Warlord musketeers to form two units of 8 Dragoons on foot.
To make the most of the Dragoons I’m going to do what I said I wouldn’t do, and add more troops to the army. A box of Warlord cavalry, and a couple of extra officers to lead them, will go with my spare troops (not pictured below) to create a fourth horse regiment, and mounted versions of the dragoons.
In addition to the military side I’m also looking to get a number of characterful additions to the battlefields, including adding to my scenery collection (I need water features and roads, plus fences and buildings – a church would be good). The first of these is pictured below; sheep, a minister, some pack animals and a companion for Lord Flasheart! More another time.
|The foote regiments, lead by Sir Hugh of Beeston, and the ordinance at the end.|
|Characterful pieces to be added too.|
|The whole army.|
|Brigadier Wolfe and his horse brigade, including the 2 dragoon units on foot.|
|The devil himself - Lord Derek Tiberius Flasheart!|
