After years in planning and another unpardonably long absence from this blog, I have finally commenced my French on Mars project. Well a test figure anyway!
|It’s a long way to Idaeus Fons Messieur...|
We are using a Space 1889 setting with Osprey’s The Men Who Would Be Kings as our tactical rules, so I will be focusing on 12 figure units for Regular and Colonial Infantry, and 8 figure Cavalry units.
My initial French force plan is:
2 units of Legion Etrangere infantry
1 unit Chaseur D’Mars (mounted on Gashants)
2 units of French trained and equipped Canal Martians Ideaues Fons
1 units of Colonial Mounted Infantry (on Gashants)
2 Artillery Pieces
This is my first test fig, which is from Artizan’s March or Die range. I’m going for something simple so I can churn them out quickly. A mate is working on his British Force with the aim of us having a game in December.
Mars pour le Francias! Mort au Prussien!
