The idea was the refight the Battle of Almanza (25 April 1707) during the War of Spanish Succession.
This was a bit of an experiment for me, being 6 mm and all, and being my first “gun” period. 6 mm is easy to paint, but not as satisfying on the table top. Guns can be fun.
I’ve got both the Franco-Spanish and Anglo-Portuguese armies for the Battle of Almanza scenario.
6 mm. These are my only non-15mm figures so are quite a novelty. It was an experiement. I found them easy to paint but it wasn’t worth getting a full dupicate set of terrain to match.
Heroics and Ross – I think.
The troops are based on 40 by 20 mm DBA style elements. Each element will have one of the following:
- 16 foot in two ranks (French, Spanish, Portuguese)
- 12 foot in two ranks and a battalion gun and crew (Anglo-Dutch)
- 6 horse in line
- 1 artillery piece and crew – gun aimed at short end of element.
- 1 artillery limber or supply wagon
The generals are based differently. All are on 20 by 20 mm bases, with three levels of command being represented by having 1, 2 or 3 figures on the base.
