Just a quick blog today, I am still working on the BYOB Bavarian battalion, I ordered flags from http://www.mts.net/~homenic1/vaubanner/vaubandex.html Vaubanner Graphics. Service and communication was great, I look forward to seeing the flags. I am going to order the flag pole tops from Triangle miniatures as they carry Front Rank here in the US. I will post pics as they progress, since the power outage I have not had much time to paint, however did manage a few 15mm old glory Cavenderian IR-3 Prinz Geoffrey which lead to an epiphany.
I have decided in order to expedite my gaming I am going to adopt the following and build up from there. Our enemy is Bizerrca and I only have Ottomans in 15mm therefore I am going to focus on painting up Cavenderians and Bizerrcans in 15mm. I have decided to play with Warfare in the Age of Reason rules as this is battalion level and will allow me to field smaller forces. However, I am a fan of the Napoleons battle basing, four figs, two ranks. I will start with 12 man battalions and 16 man Turkish mobs. This will allow me to actually play some games soon. Ultimately I would like each stand to represent a company, i.e. 5 stands of fusilier and one stand of grenadier per battalion. That way I could take two grenadier stand from two regiments and form a grenadier battalion of four stands, which would be close to the size of the 5 stand fusilier battalions. The ottomans will grow over time as well to approximately 8 - 9 stands per unit.
I hope to have some pictures up soon. I will try and get some of the Anatolian sekhans painted up this weekend and some based 15mm pics up. One last note, I may be converting the two royal Infantry regiments IR-1 and IR-3 to Austrian Hungarian style infantry as I have decided that Cavenderia will host more irregular looking troops.
