Pleased to report that the Ottoman banners sold on Ebay (all to the same chap). I’ve added some extra banners for him as I had some spare. Pleased that they are going to be used.
Sassanids all packed and ready to go. Ottomans part packed. Armies wil be handed over this weekend at the Colours show to chum Paul who has kindly offered to drive them out to Strasbourg – top chap.
A little bit of progress with the Akinci but just in case I don’t get them done I have asked event organiser Alex to have some spare figures on standby for us to use.
Just finished getting everything ready for this weekends competition at the “Colours” show. We only had 5 entries which means I have to play to make it even numbers. Runners and riders are;
Graham (Bulgar), Dave (Swiss), Tony (Swiss), David (Burgundian), Richard (WoTR), Me (Teutons). I pretty much expect that this will be the finishing order, can’t see anyone getting close to the Bulgars.
I’ve played Teutons quite a bit, including at the WAB GT, so I know there not a competition army. I’ve gone for a slightly different mix than what I usually take. Here is my 2500pt list.
1 x Gen, 1 x ASB (both lovers, not fighters)
12 Units mixed cav with 6 knights (front rank) and 6 Turkopoles (2nd rank)
2 Units x 9 Turkopoles
1 x 24 spearmen
1 x 18 spearmen
2 x 9 crossbow
Anything other than a bottom 3 finish will be a miracle !
Rams on the box tomorrow, away at Coventry. Really hope we can get 3pts from this one.
