Unfortunately I don’t really have any OPPONENTS for them… But they’re ready for action for whenever I do happen to put something together.
Most of the figures were from Ral Partha, the exceptions being the Highlanders (who were mostly made by my friend John and lead by and officer and Piper from Minifigs) and the Gurkha officer, which is from Rafm.
I know, I know... the British officers probably should have uniforms that match the forces they are leading… I wasn’t so concerned with such details 30 years ago, and I can’t bothered to repaint them at this point.
I thought I would use the British 1879 list from The Men Who Would Be Kings
The entire field force.
I thought I would use the British 1879 list from The Men Who Would Be Kings:
3x Regular Infantry (@6 points each = 18 points)
1x Well Drilled Crewed Weapon (@6 points)
I’d like to make the Gurkhas (and maybe the Highlanders) “Fierce” to do this I could either downgrade the Indian and Gurkha units to “Poorly Armed” or downgrade the Gun to “Poorly Drilled”. There’s also a “Gurkha” special rule that allows them to move through difficult terrain without being slowed down, but that’s also a +1 point upgrade… I suppose I could downgrade the gun to “Poorly Drilled” and the Gurkhas to “Poorly Armed” to add that in as well…? I guess I don’t have to worry about this until I actually have someone for them to fight… Things to consider, though.
Fierce Regular Infantry? (7 points)
Regular Infantry (6 points)
Fierce, Poorly Armed, Gurkha Regular Infantry? (7 points)
Poorly Drilled Field Gun? (4points)
