May We Play Through?




I've currently got a 7 Years war battle set up on my gaming table and I'm finishing that up so that I can get my new ECW stuff out for a small battle. Photos a bit blurry but not so bad for a pic taken on my phone.

Some beautiful pictures there. May I ask, what figure do you use for the standard bearers in the Austrian Hussars there?

I know the RSM Austrian hussar in busby doesn't include a standard bearer or an officer. What do you use?

The hussar standard bearer is just a regular trooper with the sword swapped for a guidon pole that was made from a knight lance from "Thunderbolt Mountain" (https://www.thunderboltmountain.com/index.php?cPath=2_23&osCsid=7d17c939f9e9153cdec17871c681f924)

They make packs of pole arms for medievals (10.00 USD) and the castings are really good and delicate enough to work well with RSMs...I just had to clip the pennant off a knights lance and add a flag and I was in business. I don't have an officer figure for that unit, but I think, (I'm not near the figures at the moment) I may have given one guy a grey horse and just call him the officer.

And thanks everyone for the nice comments!...and I'm a bit partial to those Austrians so its tough when I solo a game cause I always rule in their favor ;) !
