Ready for Black Powder Pike and Shotte ECW on the 22nd!

I'm ready for Black Powder/Pike and Shotte on the 22nd. I was pretty sure I had enough for at least two armies.  Yep...right arm! I've got two full armies as portrayed in the rules.  Here's how it breaks down.
4 Battalias of 3 regiments of horse-144 figures
4 Battalias of 3 regiments of pike/shotte-240 figures
2 Forlorn Hopes-small 12 figure units on single bases
2 Dragoon units and appropriate dismounts-mounted in skirmish order
8 artillery pieces
1 Mortar
1 Sharpshooter/Sniper
2 firelock units (for guarding baggage and/or detached to artillery unit
Generals and CICs for both Parliamentary and Royalist forces

All I need to do is add players and roll some dice. Here's a small gallery. Pictures are taken in my gaming house. It's called the Rat Palace Redux. It's located in Red Oak, Texas. Come over and let's roll some bones. You're always welcome!

  1. It certainly looks well laid out. Have fun mixing in dice and players.

  2. I really like the look of your units and especially your vignettes.
