15mm ECW for Baroque
#1
Hi all,

Thought I'd chart my progress on amassing more stuff for Baroque in 15mm.  You can see my 'old' collection here..

http://fat-wally.com/BasicBaroqueECW.html

Well, after rebasing well over 200 cavalry on the smaller 40 x 30 bases, I'm significantly adding to the collection.

Baroque is very similar to Impetus but uses lots of 'chrome' with markers needed to reflect these upgrades to units.  I decided to use figures rather than markers....

Feared, Hardened, Iron Officers, Master Gunner Markers

These look excellent - I'm a big fan of the "mobile diorama" approach to Renaissance figures.

What are the base sizes for the different troop types? (I ask because 40x30 is the same as for FoG:R and it would be handy to be able to use the same figures for both.)

Pike and Musket unit (up to 1660) - 12cm frontage, 4-6 cm depth
Pike and Musket (post 1660) & Shot - 12cm frontage, 3-4 cm depth
Irregular Foot - 12cm frontage, 4 cm depth
Skirmishers - 12cm frontage, 2-3 cm depth
Dragoons - 12cm frontage, 3-4 cm depth or up to 6cm is horseholders depicted

I think Lorenzo wisely altered some of the basing schemes to fit FoG and other more mainstream rules

Been a very busy chap lately finishing off all sorts of 15mm EVW stuff that's been on my personal workbench for months, and getting limited attention.  All for use with Baroque by Dadi and Piombi

Col John Owen's (Oxford) Regiment

Sir Allan Apsley's Regiment

Replace the pike command element and we have Commanded Shot...

Camps. I based them on 1BU x 2BU bases allowing some variety in area/camp size (2 BU x 2BU or 6 BU x 2BU) Figures are mostly by Matchlock Miniatures (available from Caliver Books), wagons and fences from Museum Miniatures, various clutter from Hallmark (available from Magister Militum). Tents (Western European Style) by Fire and Sword Miniatures. For me, camps are one of those things that really set the character of an army.
