ImagiNation: A new unit marches out from the depot

I've been able to pump out another battalion without having to paint a single figure.  Thank god I accidentally ordered some extra figures from Front Rank and painted them up as test models (actually, I think they got a better paint job then most of my batch painted ones).  Movement trays ordered from today, so I will have to post up a quick review once I receive the epic amount that I ordered.

Primo Battaglione della Guardia della città di Campari
Figures: Crusader USA Hungarian Fusiliers

Originally I had designed this unit to be a militia regiment raised from towns around the fictitious capital of the Duchy of Libations and I am going to be continuing with this trend.  Before its restructuring, this unit was comprised of two "companies" of 10 figures, a command and a 8" siege mortar (completely useless in game, which is why I purchased one...).  The 10 figure groups are rather ungainly on the table, perfect for the only basically trained conscripts.  In gaming terms, the Gardia della città di Campari (translates in English to Guard of the City of Campari) will be a Conscript Regular Infantry regiment.

 As usual, broken down into the four different companies.

So much facial hair...

In other news, a large box arrived at my parents place (preferred shipping location due to the "accidental" loses that the military post office sustains in great numbers) from Battlefield Terrain Concepts.  I purchased a large number of trees from them at HistoriCon, but the number of trees in the package did not match what was listed on the label, so they kindly sent me some to make up the difference.  I will be posting up a quick review on them at a later date, still waiting on getting a Dremel so I can cut up some bases for them.

  1. Really impressed with your set up, posted a link from our local forum, with the movement trays you should be able to convert some for Maurice and still have the option for big battalion games.
    Great stuff ol'boy.
