Nice use of the tray mate!

No doubt they have been mentioned elsewhere, but I can't remember seeing those movement trays before. Who makes them and how much?

Ideal for the many rules that use the 10 or 20 man unit and much quicker than making your own.

Another beautiful game. The Texian cavalry look especially good as a unit. I'd forgotten just how good bits of lichen, twigs and stand-alone trees, rather than fancy purpose-built terrain pieces, could look.

 :D

The movement trays are the work of that genius, Jim Bibbly, Oshiro Models ;)

Could You show the front of him so I could see what you did? :)

You can see a close up here in Bugsda's LPL entry:

http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=27634.0

The original figure was wearing short knee length trousers, I added the Green stuff to give him Vaquero leggings with the buttons down the outside of the legs and a reinforced inner leg.

I have converted a few more of the Front Rank Spanish Guerillas into Tejanos with only minor changes to the figures.

Great fun was had by all, even though we still don't know the rules  lol

Many thanks to Seņor Millymully for hosting  :D

I do the trays in both skirmish and ranked. They are mainly for 25mm dia bases but I can do anything you want really. E-mail through the sig below and we'll go from there  :)

The lancers performed superbly but (as Capt Blood can affirm) I am certainly not the worlds luckiest player  :( crap dice and all  ::)

cheers

Excellent work with the changes, Nick .  8)

The last of the photos as taken by Capitano Blood showing the advance of the Mexican army culminating in the Cazadores occupying the yard of the central Jacales thus sealing the fate of the Texian army who failed to advance to meet them.

Great stuff Nick! (And the earlier battle reports, which I somehow missed). Smashing terrain and minis. You've really been pruning the shrubs in your garden for all those trees, haven't you?  ;D

Sharp Practice.

And believe me, practice is what you need with those rules... Talk about complicated, my goodness  ::)
