I’ve been thinking about doing something with mass combat in NOD using the Swords & Wizardry rules (because they’re simple and straight forward) or the Swords & Shields rules by ckutalik at Hill Cantons that he recently made available as a free download.
In either event, I tried to make NOD more mass combat friendly in NOD 6, stating combat forces as squadrons (of 10 troops) and companies (of 20 troops) in one of several troop types:
Militia: Peasant Militia, Yeomen Militia and Scouts
Footmen: Archers, Crossbowmen, Handgunners, Slingers, Light Foot, Heavy Foot
Horsemen: Light Horse, Heavy Horse, Knights
NOD 6 is a free download, so I’m not going to go into the whole thing in detail here – just check the article on Western Venatia for more. Anyhow – last night I was looking for some paper minis. I think the Cardboard Fighters are my favorites (sample below), and I’d love some black and white templates of those figures so I could color them in myself with the blazonry of the different armies in NOD.
I also discovered the paper minis at The Fantasy Trip and was absolutely blown away! Check them out – you will not be disappointed (sample below) and you can’t beat the price.
Bear in mind – each of these images is a clip of a much larger sheet.
