Those of you familiar with the Fanaticus Forum
(DBA) will probably be familiar with the phrase. I finally added some Psiloi to the Franco-Scots. The DBA list just says 'Psiloi' - and the figures I used for Landwaster last week were just generic peasants.
The DBMM2 list makes some French crossbowmen compulsory, but in keeping with the idea that this is basically a Scots army with a few French along, and that formed crossbowmen didn't seem to have had much of an impact in the battles I am interested in, I decided to do these as skirmishers (Psiloi in DBx terminology).
All Corvus Belli figures, and I still have a load of these unpainted if I elect to change the army composition. Plus I have added another seven Knight elements, three of which will be generals.
|The Psiloi 'en masse'|
|'Mr de Mille, I'm ready for my close-up'|
|Bruce, Fraser & Anderson|
|Murray, Maxwell & Johnson|
|French: Culant, Gaucort & Coutes|
|Scots General: Douglas with Scrymgeour the standard bearer |
|Scots General: Hay with Graham the standard bearer|
|French General: Alencon & Giresme the standard bearer|
Obviously, some basing required, but making steady progress. The whole army only needs another 16 elements completed plus 14 dismounted knight elements. Onwards...
Very nice! That base/hightlight white combination you use is very striking. Those bases look great too. Is that a magnetic material you use underneath?ReplyDelete
Great looking army so far!
Hi Aaron, thanks for the kind words. Yes, the bases are ones I purchase locally from Dean at Olympian Games, they are laser cut ply with a magnetic base. Most of my transport is done using metal tool boxes, and these stick very well (almost too well at times).ReplyDelete
Looking great, Doug. Well done. I am looking forward to seeing the finished product.ReplyDelete
Did yo get more Xbow or are those repurposed from the few I gave you? Because if the latter, they look so much better now!ReplyDelete
Hi John, no, I had some other crossbow figures. I will be painting some up as Genoese and some as French formed bowmen. Progress is steady rather than spectacular. Some Highland archers next, and I may also sneak some Highland axemen on to the painting queue.ReplyDelete
Some ideas for my few Scots knights to do for some variety. I am part pay through nine figures and have another three for the King to do. Mostly generic of course as I dont intend to follow strict history and will use them to break up the boredom in Crusader armiesReplyDelete
