Nothing like jumping in at the deep end to motivate yourself! Wanting to get a game in at the weekend with a good buddy, I realised that the first Saturday I had free was 19th July we decided to make the most of the time and plan something which would require a little preparation!
As we have both recently become fans of Flintloque, we decided it would be a good opportunity to go a little bigger and play some Slaughterloo. Great idea, although I've just realised how much painting I need to get done. Hence the challenge!
We opted for small 1000 point armies to get us going and I quickly figured out what I could use from my collection for a Ferach force. Looks like it will be a bit of a split between Elves and Todoroni, which suites me fine
- 7 light infantry
- 8 Militia
- 1 Light Gun with 6 crew.
So at the moment it is looking like a force just wanting to be swept from the field by any reasonably trained enemy...
Here's the Ferach contingent:
- 12 Line infantry
- 10 Line infantry (actually Light, but they will do alternative duties for this game)
- 12 Light infantry
- 3 Heavy Cavalry (to be expanded to the minimum 5 by my next purchase)
So all in all an almighty shambles of a force! This should be fun!
On the plus side, it doesn't require a massive outlay in advance of the game. Just a couple of cavalry and a general should do, although I can see myself opting for some additional Line infantry or a better cannon!
I'll report on my progress as I go and post pictures of units as and when they are completed.
