Finally the Samurai and Cavalry

Well, after a bit of a hiatus, the first of the Wargames Factory Samurai and Samurai Cavalry are done. The Samurai box is a bit of a pain. Attach legs together and then to torso and then arms and then head and weapons. The Cavalry box was a delight! Lower torso to upper then arms/w weapon attached! The rider fits on the horse perfectly! I hope to buy some extra rider weapon sprues to use with the other boxes. Major drawback of the cav box was that the horse hoofs had to be attached to the base. I added a pin to brace the horses that only had 2 hoofs touching the ground. But it was an easy fix and easily covered up.

Lepanto 1/1200

Yesterday was the club's second game of Lepanto using the Laterna rules. Almost 80 ships in all. Once more it was a big win for the Holy League. We're going to tweak the rules a bit as we build for the third game in May. Should have about 130 ships by then. Bob, started all this with his purchase of exquisite Langton ships, was considering 1:1 as our final goal in ship numbers, but we decided on a 1:3 ratio.
