A second keil has jointed the first, and they are both, now, quite a bit larger!

Nearly time for the Swiss to roll…!

Personal logo BigRedBat Sponsoring Member of TMP03 Dec 2020 12:51 p.m. PST

Covid-permitting, they will be rolling over Burgundians from May or June onwards. But I'm not yet halfway there.

That's great.

Awesome! Are they plastic Perry figs?

Big Red Bat has the money to buy those Keils. Pas d'argent, pas des Suisses! :)

Legionarius03 Dec 2020 6:11 p.m. PST

I do hope that they roll over the impudent Burgundians and anyone else who dares stand in their path. After all, Simon is the author of the best Ancient/Medieval rules in the hobby! :)

Simply WOW!

LOL Legionarius

They are roughly 3/4 Perry plastic, with some Perry metal heads, and the rest Perry metals. It might have been a relatively cheap project but there are just so many of them, that it isn't turning out that way.

Simon, as you know, the Swiss are never cheap. However, they do deliver as promised. Victory is (almost) guaranteed. At least before gunpowder was perfected! Cheers!

We shall see how they do. So far, all my experience fighting Swiss in TtS! has been from behind the blunt end of a lance, and I've generally managed to prevail against them. But I have some ideas how the Swiss might succeed…
