We're into Day 6 of our '10 Days of 10mm' and today we're heading back to the Medieval period to add some knights in bascinet helmets (pig-faced/dog-faced) along with a handy monk and nun figure as well.  Thanks to fsn for commissioning these!

I do like the german paratroopers nuns and monks - useful for so many periods.

Mmm, may have to do a "Sound of Music" camp element.

.... and it means we can war-game the movie with the action-packed ending it should have had to keep us kids happy.*  :)

* memories of disappointment when first dragged along to see it when I was a boy.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

In Andy Hamilton's rather excellent Old Harry's Game, there is one scene where Scumspawn describes Satan liking The Sound of Music, although in his version the nuns hand the family over to the Nazis, and the tone of "Climb Every Mountain" is rather changed when sang by the German stormtroopers . . .

Would those be the leaping nuns of the Order of St Beryl?  :D


I'll bring up the rest of the brigade.

Oh so little imagination.

  • Objectives - Norsemen kill those monks
  • Medics - troops of nuns giving first aid to causlties and acting as casualty clearing stations
  • Morale boosters - a troop of nuns giving your troops a bit of a Te Deum from the hillside
  • Scenery - someone to stand outside those churches
  • Information sources - for discovery type games
  • Building up a retinue - add a monk to your command base
  • Resistance - either by shutting the doors to that stratgically placed nunnery  or placing themselves at the head of that horde of peasants who have just had about as much as they can take

Egging on the citizenry

QuoteWhat's a Te Diem?
It's Latin for "Thee Day" - a day for pampering yourself, clearly.


So, in context it's a bunch of fifth columnist nuns urging your troops to "make love not war."  :)
