Imperial Skirmish List

It sure has been a while since I have entered anything on either of my blogs. Not like me. Oh well, I am excited about starting a new project and hope to complete it and practice with it before the BFaS tournament at Historicon this July.  I was going to start my Transylvanian skirmish set but opted out at the last minute for the Holy Roman Empire. At the pace I paint I have a better chance at completing the HRE in time.

Okay. Enough of that. You are not here to read my ramblings so here are the first two companies of Imperials.

Veteran Cuirassier ready for combat. Two keys to my list are ALL my cuirassier will be armored. Second key is half my list are veterans and yes, you may have noticed, armed with an arquebus. Imperial lists are small so I want the troops to be well protected and flexible - shoot or close combat. We will see.

The Regulars. One of the units was painted years ago but will do until replaced for skirmish. I hope to do a full division some day and they will be mobilized again.

While I await my blisters to round out my armored with arquebus companies, I am starting some Dragoons which will add flexibility to my skirmish force as an option but are also needed for my Defensive Skirmish Force next up on the painting table, ummmm, June, hopefully!

Until next time...

Happy Gaming!!!
