So why did I place five figures on the pike stands (placed like a five pip on a d6) and three figures on each shot stand . . . all instead of the usual four on each?
I firmly believe that pikes should be in "close order" and that (with burning matches) matchlock men would be in a looser (although not "open") order for safety's sake. Others may well disagree, but I think that it looks good.
As for the "command figure" in front of each unit, it does not fight. It is simply a marker for the unit's current status . . . in front for good order, in back for disordered, and well behind the unit if shaken. This allows for a "marker" that does not disrupt the look of the battlefield.
Flags (and coat colors) are from the fine Wargames Design website . . . although I have increased the flag size to 45mm square (pikes/flagstaffs are 80mm). My bases are nominally 2" square . . . but are actually 47mm square so that they will fit into my display cabinet.
Now to finish the rest of the Foot so that I can move on to the cavalry.
Very nice and colorful looking units!
Looking good Jeff.ReplyDelete
Nice work, Jeff! Your solution is perfectly logical to me. In fact, my approach followed a similar reasoning.ReplyDelete
Figures look to be Redoubt as are most of mine. Is that the case?
Keep them coming!
No, not Redoubt. My figures are a mix of Perry, Warlord Plastics and some unknown figures I got from another gamer.
The poses are very similar then!Delete
