A Dour Affair
This Monday's scrap was a bit of a non-event. Ayyubid Egyptian v Late Crusader (DBM) was never going to be that stirring.
Skillful use of CvS and LhS by my subordinate bottled up 2/3 of the enemy troops. I attacked down the right wing slaughtering Sp(I). Unfortunately it wasn't enough to break the command - I needed 2 more elements and couldn't reach them. Still it did mean that a block of Knights now couldn't risk a fight.
Not surprisingly a 5:5 draw.
On another note I recently ordered 3 boxes of plastics from www.modelhobbies.co.uk
Caesar H028 Aztec Warriors
Caesar H025 Conquistadores
Mars 72041 Imperial Heavy Cavalry (Thirty Years War)
I'm now trying to work out what I can field for "DBA in the New World" or DBA-RRR.. Hopefully the Conquistadores can be added to some Revell figures to make up either a Spanish or Portuguese Colonial army. The Aztec figures will supply native allies.
Still need some more Maya and Inca figures so its either a 60 mile round trip to Halifax or flexing the plastic. Weighing up the cost of petrol versus postage I think I will rely on model hobbies' good service again.
