|Turn Three. The Black Horse begin a charge on the gun but are handily repulsed with little damage on either side.|
There were a number of things I had been mulling about but the three biggest questions were:
a) Since I already have more figures than I can squeeze into my NorthWest campaign in its current format and since there are a limited number of scenarios that fit within the setting and premise, can I reasonably make it bigger or could I do some thing else that would compliment it using mostly what I already have in the way of figures and moulds?
b ) I am already tired of chasing single 54's around on uneven terrain so did I want to stick with flat terrain, single figures and small forces or give in to the urge to mount them on bases again and use the cloth over the hills terrain? If so should I go with Morschauser's proposed 4 infantry in 2 ranks on a base like I am tempted or go with larger units which is an attractive thought and what should units look like for the two different campaigns? In any case the bases would have to allow units to occupy my new standard houses or in other words fit within a 60x60mm foot print.
c) Since using more figures per unit would allow me to use more of my collection to play exactly the same games using the gridded Tin Army is that a good option or is there a better way to have the North West game feel like small forces skirmishing on the wide Prairie and have a different game that feels more like a battle between armies and possibly be able to get double use out of figures by having basing and organization be compatible?
|First blood for the NorthWest Lancers!|
|Less than 1/2 way into the game the US sort of ran out of units and I called it off.|
