Tercios Liber Militum – Battle report

Tercios Liber Militum – Battle report

I have played my very first Tercios Liber Militum game today, and I’m more than delighted. Fast, dynamic and so fun. Do you want to know more? Continue reading. To get familiarized with the rules we decided to play a basic game (1000 points) and the first scenario (Glory Fields). I played the Spanish Empire and my rival used German Protestants. A very historical fight! We did some things in the wrong way, but this first game has been very useful to understand the mechanics of the game. I cannot wait to play the second game! This was my army list: Spanish army 1000 points *Maestre de Campo (General), Level 3: 25 puntos (Virtue: +1 stamine; Atribute: Authoritarian and Provocative). *Infantry Regiment: Command, Level Nivel 2: 25 points (Virtue: +1 stamine; Atribute: Authoritarian and Coordinator).

Santiago y cierra España! Cuirassiers for my TYW Imperial army

I’m working on a very special project, my very own 15mm Thirty Years War army. Unfortunately I don’t have time to paint my own miniatures, as I’m always working on comissions. However, the miniatures from Totentanz have inspired me in a way never seen before in myself. And therefore, I exploit all the gaps I have to paint it. Furthermore, the recent rulebook published by El Kraken: Tercios Liber Millitum is the perfect excuse to use these miniatures.  I have finished today another mounted unit, some Cuirassiers. Take a closer look! I have painted 6 horse riders to compose a mounted unit to play Tercios. I have destributed them in two bases (3 miniatures / base) to form a 8cm front. The banner has been painted by hand over a copper sheet. If you are interested, you can find a complet painting guide about how to paint miniatures of this period here. The horses has been painted using this color: Dark brown: shadows with Dark oxide 302 (Panzer Aces, Vallejo), base with Flat brown 984 (Vallejo) and a slight light with Orange brown 981 (Vallejo) Light brown: Shadows with Chocolate brown 872 (Vallejo), base with English uniform 921 (Vallejo) and lights with a bit of white Grey: shadows with Black grey 862 (Vallejo), base with Basalt grey 869 (Vallejo) and lights with a bit of white   And here you can see my whole mounted force: a light cavalry unit, a heavy cavalry unit and the mounted General.   And this is the current status of my Imperial Army using Totentanz Miniatures: Share:Haz clic para compartir en Facebook (Se...
