Hey

was wondering what was happening with this Period
I did hear a rumor that it may be getting an over haul ?

There is a lot missing from the ranges so could be interesting to
see if there is anything planned ?

Thanks

Welcome from me as well. I have actually used the figures in a few games before now, belonging to another club member. The current range is very nice, although, as you say there are some significant gaps. Proxies may be available in other ranges, eg French in kepi in the 1870 range, and French hussars from the 1848 Danes. A few photos:









The 17th Lancers came from either the French or Prussian 1870 lancers. I think we were using Black Powder, bur it could have been Neil Thomasí C19th rules.

Welcome Nap4 Wave

The remodeling of the range was mentioned in this thread by Leon http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,17661.msg261256.html#msg261256

So more than a rumour Wink

As mentioned in the thread paulr linked to, we'll be starting to work on new Crimean ranges at the end of this year and I'd hope to have the first releases ready around Salute time next year.

Definitely 10mm for me - I quite like the look of the current Crimean War Russians - I think they would look good in ponderous columns. But I would like to see what poses the new range will include.

And definitely BBB as it has scenarios for all of the battles

nice looking game btw

And hello to Nap4

thanks Shedman - I can feel myself leaning. Plus the 25x25 basing creates all sorts of other possibilities.

The only downside to BBB is that at Balaclava the Light Brigade is only 2 S Vet Cav so that is 4 figures

so how to squeeze the 4th and 13th Light Dragoons, 17th Lancers, and the 8th and 11th Hussars down to 4 figures

Leon - can we have a special BBB Light Brigade pack in the new range please  Wink Cheesy

I've been toying with the idea of doubling the number of cavalry myself for BBB.

And there's the beauty of the inch square base. Two bases for BBB, then refight the actual charge again using all the regiments at four bases strong and Black Powder rules.

As I have mentioned elsewhere Leon did a special order for my 1917 German Asian Cavalry Korps Smiley
