I placed an order with Black Tree Design at the very end of last year (there was a huge sale – like, 50% off stuff… I was weak…). It finally arrived today (via UPS, unfortunately…).
Most of this was earmarked for Frostgrave, Lion Rampant/Dragon Rampant, or A Song of Blades and Heroes…
For Lion Rampant (or Dragon Rampant… if I feel like fighting fantasy foes…) I ended up with:
2 units of Foot European Men-At-Arms (6 each)
1 unit of European Crossbow (12)
1 unit of European Archers (12) (+4 more to flesh out existing units of bidowers)
1 unit of European Spearmen (Foot Yeoman – 12)
1 unit of European Billmen/Halbardiers (Expert Foot Seargeants or Yeoman – 12)
1 unit of European Serfs (12) (+4 more to finish another unit I already have
1 bombard and crew… not really for Lion Rampant… I’m not sure why I bought it…?
1 unit of Muslim Archers (12)
2 unit of Muslim Spearmen (12 each – actually one unit I ordered only has 8 as I have four random muslim command types I can add to the unit to make 12)
1 unit of Muslim Mounted Sergeants - on Camels! (6) actually these are from the fantasy Saracen range and are a little fantastical looking… I hope I can make them look at tad more historical and make use of them (they were 50% off – the actuall historical cavalry was not…)
For Frostgrave (or any other fantasy skirmish or RPG, really… but I had Frostgrave in mind when I ordered them… almost all of them are actually from the Hundred Years War line – as in the Lion Rampant units above – I thought the padded armour looked like it might double as cold weather clothing!):
4x Infantrymen (Billmen)
I picked up Reaper Miniatures Legends of the Sands Boxed Set on Boxing Day at the Dragon's Den (though the one I picked up was older stock and didn't have the fancy carrying case...) and thought I might use them for Frostgrave warbands (or perhaps “Dustgrave”…?) so I picked up a few more of the Medieval Muslims and fantasy Saracens for those warbands:
Other stuff included:
9 Halflings for either SoBH or Dragon Rampant (filling out units of archers or mixed Yeoman – or light foot or whatever they’re called in Dragon Rampant - or scouts/bidowers)
1 Mounted Sorceress (could be for any Fantasy skirmish/RPG – but I thought I might add her to one of the Lion Rampant retinues to add a fantasy element when using it in Dragon Rampant).
2 goblin + 1 Orc Shaman (Dragon Rampant… or SoBH…?)
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
Probably a Frostgrave Game report as we’re planning to continue our new campaign either Saturday or Sunday evening.
