The Andalusians are ready to march

There's nothing like an upcoming deadline to speed up the work :-) 

At our next big club event AttritiCon which will be held in two weeks I have the honour to stage an El Cid - Impetus game with Christopher aka Axebreaker, known near and far for his beautiful armies. Just take a look at his fabtastic El Cid army and you will understand why to say I'm under pressure to present something adequate really is quite an understatement. 

Thus I have started to base and paint an Andalusian army that was for a long time in my mind and in my cuppord but for some reason or the other had not seen the light of day yet. Today I'm glad to say that it is finished. Have a look for yourself:

Impetus Andalusian Cavalry (figues by Musketeer, Gripping Beast, Artizan, Black Tree and Crusader)


Impetus Andalusian Infantry (figues by Musketeer, Artizan, Gripping Beast and Black Tree)

I have already written what there is to say about this army here, so this time I'll let it suffice with the army list and some more pictures. All together it is a 400p army consisting of two commands:

Command 1 (Horse): 227 p
1 Expert Commander (C-in-C), attached to CM below 30 p
4 Andalusian Cav CM 92 p
1 Mercenary Knights  29 p
1 Banu Birzal CM  30 p
2 Andalusian CL with Javelin 46 p

Command 2 (mainly foot): 173 p
1 Expert Commander (not attached)  20 p
2 Javelin Skirmishers 24 p

3 Andalusian Foot and Archers fielded together as large units  75 p
2 Mercenary Light Horse with Bow  44 p                                      

 Now all I have left to do is learn the Impetus - rules... And, ahem, finish some other figures I'll need for the event. But more of this later.

All the best to you, take care and thanks for your visit,
