|Spanish Christians vs Andalusian Moors|
Last month Nick and I played a double header of big battle Basic Impetus and as often is the case the pictures didn't come off as well as I would have liked, but I'll share them anyways. It of course was great fun!
First game was Late Romans vs Germanics which is a mixture of both Nick and my own figures. Nick took command of the Late Romans and myself the Germanic. If I remember correctly the hairy Germans rolled over the Romans. It helped that my dice were pretty hot that game. Sorry only these two pictures somewhat came out for this game.
|The Late Romans|
|The two armies face off|
|The Moors arrayed for battle|
|Andalusian light cavalry and Christian Mercenaries|
|Black Guard and Berber Infantry holding the center|
|Berber infantry and Skirmishers protecting the flank|
|Christian army formed up. Lots of heavy cavalry on flanks with a decent amount of infantry center|
|Didn't I say the lots of Heavy cavalry for the Spanish|
|Yep, more cavalry|
|Spanish launch an assault on the Moors left flank|
|And turn the flank.|

During Curt's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge I won a prize for reaching a goal. The prize was a gift package from Simon from The BigRedBat Cave blog and author of "To the Strongest" ancients/medieval rule set. He not only sent me a copy of the rules but playing chits as well and all of it free charge to include shipping! Extremely generous and thank you very much Simon!! I haven't had a chance to play the rules, but I've heard only good things about them and book itself is lovely indeed!

And finally my plans in the future will of course include more Impetus projects with some ACW thrown in, but another rule set that has caught my eye that I want to try and that is....
Yes sir, like many others this has grabbed my attention, but for now I'll keep it a little secret as to what it will be building for this, but let's just say since I was a kid a certain film has always peeked my interest in the period and no it's nothing you have seen from me so far. Oh and I won't answer guesses:-)
For some reason blogger didn't post this until 5 hours later! Well at least it finally got posted.
