Black Powder: Second Portuguese Line Battalion

Finished these boys today, and thus complete my first brigade for the game:

I chose to use the yellow colours and cuffs of the 21st Regiment for this unit, and again its one of the flags provided by warlord in the box hehe.

This gives me enough to start but im looking forward to adding more and playing bigger games as soon as we are allowed out of lockdown!

Black Powder: Portuguese Line Battalion

I've been working on these as time has allowed for a week or so and finally completed them this morning:

As with the Cacadores and Artillery, i've gone for historically inspired rather than fully accurate, i have missed off the piping as to a non-buff its a route of painting madness im not prepared to go down.

They do look cool all ranked up and i cant wait to get a larger force painted up and on the table... i definitely see the appeal of Napoleonic era gaming now!

Black Powder: Portuguese Artillery Battery

I got these badass cannons finished yesterday night but the wife was working from home today and so robbed access to the computer all day!

Artillery in the game isn't massively effective, its more for some speculative long range pot shots... it does become quite lethal at very short range tho hehe.

I will have a couple of batteries in my force to keep my opponents honest haha

Black Powder: Napoleonic Portuguese Army!

There comes a time in every gamer's life that they get old enough, fat enough and grumpy enough that they here the call of Napoleonic wargaming haha... and i have reached that time!

About a month ago i posted on our clubs facebook group about wanting to start Black Powder, and got a phenomenal response from the boys, we now have about a dozen of us at various stages of beginning our forces.

I have decided to collect a Portuguese army hehe, the blue uniforms combined with the fact they have some decent light infantry sharpshooters and also were a smallish force so not requiring tonnes of different units sealed the deal.

This is my first unit, Elite Sharpshooters called Cacadores (Hunters), pretty similar to the British 95th Rifles of Sharp's Company fame hehe.

More to follow soon!
