The Calm Before the Storm

*Editors Note This is an unfinished post pre-unification wars. I’m publishing it in its unfinished state because I ain’t got the heart to delete it. Enjoy.


Alright, after a month of non-stop 6mm madness, I have found the perfect chance to take a break (waiting for more minis to arrive) and reflect on what has happened so far.

I ran into some interesting questions with Cav. I eventually settles on the classic V formation because if it worked for the Mighty Ducks, I’m sure it worked for Napoleon.

The biggest snag I have run into thus far is not having enough command stands. This is mostly my fault because I am basing my minis with two columns on each base, and for conscripts, I like the idea of one blob. The only issue is that I didn’t think about this before my initial Baccus order. So that’s yet another thing you need to think about before placing orders. Luckily Baccus minis are excellent, and I needed more anyway.

Washing has been the key to success with these minis. Even more so than on any other scale. I’m sure some of you can pick out the super details on each mini, but for us normies, the wash gives the face and uniform that depth needed.

I’m not a big fan of pausing projects so I am overly deliberate with laying out my units.
