Boxers Rebellion 1900 Imperial Chinese Army
The second post of the day, having revamped the first of the allied units, I thought I would turn my attention to some of the Boxers and the Imperial Chinese Army, this is one of my favourite units although they never perform well on the table, maybe the new paint job and basing will give them some extra back bone.
Chinese Imperial Army advance on the Allied Barbarians looking to drive them from Chinese soil, all figures my Old Glory, mounted on 1p's and dropped into a warbase movement tray.
4 Units of Boxers split into 5 figure movement trays, I need to work out a simple way of highlighting the Bigmen of the units, but for now the trays will work, with a generic Big men noted underneath the base, I have marked them all Status I for the ease of game play.
Some added added fire to the Boxer forces, I am thinking of classing them as snipers within the Mud & Blood rules, making it easier to get a kill, but not having a mass fire effect such as classing them as artillery.
