Sword play rules test .....

Moved outside yesterday evening for 'gaming session'; indoors was too hot and there was nice breeze outside.  The 'simple sword play rules' were tested out using small scenic setups on a couple of my table riser sections.

encounters in rocky outcrops...
 After trialling 1 against 1, 1 against 2 and tweaking the rules a bit we then tried a Musketeer dealing with three cardinals guard
the musketeer managed top fend off the guardsmen but picked up two wounds and got away.  I need to write up the changes to the rules.

Sculpts: review of Polish Masters...

As I've been working on some TYW sculpts I decided to review the 40mm Polish masters; a few tweaks done
  • The Haiduk's musket has been shortened by about 3mm
  • The riders have had their swords moved to down by the side of their left boot - easier to make a mould and less problems with metal flow.
  • The Pancerni has been given a new face
  • The generic foot figure has been reworked, the upper body has been changed with new arm positions plus a sword added too.
Here are the masters ....

I am going to make moulds for these (when the weather gets a cooler),  mould list

Hussar + Wing
Pancerni + Haiduk
Light Car + Haiduk
Generic Foot figure + ?

For the Pancerni and Light cavalry I will buy some add-on bits like shields and bow cases from The Assault Group, the 28mm accessories are just about right.
