One more painting update for January...
I finally finished up the first squad of Tallarn Roughriders!
It's really freaking cold outside today (where I always take pictures - because the light is so much better!) - so I didn't mess around with setting up any terrain or shots from different angles and thus you cannot really make this out - but I added a lot of saddle bags and sacks and blanket rolls to try and make it look like these guys are going somewhere... or... perhaps... have BEEN somewhere..?
Is that what a small grouping of cavalry is called..? "Squad"...? Feels like an infantry term Squads form into platoons, which form into companies, which form into battalions, etc... But cavalry forces traditionally have Troops instead of platoons and Squadrons instead of companies...? Are cavalry formations broken down into things smaller than Troops? I feel like "File" might be right, but I can find no reference for it...?
Regardless, if 40K they're called "Squads". I think I have 28 of these, currently, which will nicely make three squads of nine each.
Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:
I'm supposed to be hosting a weekend campaign of Shadow War: Armageddon in just over two weeks... I guess I better get working on some of the stuff I planned to do for that... another Kill Team or two and some terrain. Maybe actually PLAY some games to familiarize ourselves with the rules!?
The campaign isn't taking place on Armageddon - so don't expect me to the cranking out promethium refineries or other sorts of urban sprawl or mechanicus industrial facilities... The campaign is taking place on Brind's World - the setting of all our recent games - previously occupied by a highly advanced, though long dead race, Kill Teams will be collecting Archaeotech caches rather than promethium stashes...
