I am happy to have finished off the Flodden armies and to start thinking about what I’m going to be doing with them. I’m not yet sure about rules but am heavily invested in the To the Strongest! / For King and Parliament scheme and will likely stay somewhere within that scope. A few modifications will be required (although, as Flodden looks much more like a medieval than a renaissance battle, an unadulterated TtS! may be the ticket). I am now very much inclined to leave any rules modifications to those more knowledgable and clever than me.
As it stands, each 1×1” piece represents 500 men. This gives a more grand tactical feel than normal and may mean I’ll go in a new direction (as I did with Barley Valley ) using the pieces individually. I do have a number of custom-sized movement stands coming from Pendraken which will allow me to group the pieces into units for use in battles of a different figure/man scale.
The now completed English Army at Flodden:
After finishing the English I sat down to the rather boring and repetitive task of resizing all the flags of the Scottish army. Funzy!
The now completed Scots Army at Flodden:
All the pieces, nearly two hundred, now have to have magnetic vinyl added to use with custom move stands. This is even more boring than making flags.
