Monday 1st August 2016 - WDW
The scribbled plan above shows my troops in black and the enemy in blue. I really made a mess of my deployment. Command one had all my cavalry plus 10 Lh(O) - stuck between a steep hill and two woods. Command 4 (the Greeks) were hung out to dry on the right flank. In hindsight I should have put the hoplites between the hills (a la Thermopylae) and command one on the right. Basic rookie mistakes.
This shows what happens when you turn up frazzled after being diverted off course because some a***h**e thought he could get under a low bridge. Luckily Al & I managed to hold out for a draw.
On the other tables - WW1 Naval, American War of Independence (Black Powder) & WW2 in the Desert (Vichy French v Americans).
Tuesday 2nd August 2016 - finished another book
Thursday 4th August 2016 - Red Box figures (from Hannants) arrived this afternoon.
RB72096 - Spanish infantry 16C - set 1
RB72099 - Italian infantry 16C - set 1
RB72108 - Scottish Light Cavalry - War of the Roses
All of these are currently sitting in the "Awaiting Review" section of PSR.
The infantry have an awful lot of flash around the sprue and figure base making them hard to separate. The cavalry have no distinct lessening between sprue and riders' legs.
