2nd post of the day - RJW All dayer....
Dashing in to save the day - The Japanese dismounted cavalry make an appearance just in time for tomorrows game.
Let's hope they don't suffer the fate of most newly painted figures and lose on their first outing.
Another fine selection of figures from Tsuba Miniatures - sculpted by Paul Hicks.
Even time to paint up Rasputin - Delivering inspiration to the Russian Troops.
This would been before he met the Tsar.... Perhaps a holiday in the East?
With size of game planned I have a couple of minor rule amendments.
Instead of each unit containing an officer with character traits, I have introduced 3 commanders per side, these can be attached to units or hold a command radius allowing one unit each turn to re-roll their initiative if required.
If a unit in the command fails its command roll that brigade can no longer activiate any further units unless the office is used, this is similar in style to Dragon and Lion Rampant but should slow the activiation rate and slow the casualty rate as the number of regular units is quite high on each side and with free fire actions casualties could soon mount up.
Off to print the order sheets and grab a well deserved beer..... Asahi no less :-)
