Litko Cavalry Skirmish Trays

A few more Litko movement trays - this time for cavalry in skirmish formation. These were the three remaining such trays on sale from FRP Games. They arrived within a week from ordering; guess I've been really lucky with my orders, as others have mentioned slow delivery. Maybe it's because I'm just two states north of them.
The cavalry are a unit each of Scythian bowmen, Celt/Gallic warband and Tarantine light cavalry. The Scythians and Celt/Gauls are Old Glory, and the Tarantines are mostly Redoubt. They've all been used in games as part of a Successor army. The figures are on GW style bases. In addition to the trays individual bases for each cut out are also supplied. I intend to use some in conjunction with 50mm squares for various formations.

  1. Nice! Those really look sharp.

    I've been trying to figure out something similar for my Cossacks so I can play skirmish battles as well as Black Powder with them. Main problem is I'd like to have them on round bases (prob 40mm)

    1. I think Litko has movement trays for 40mm rounds too. I just didn't want to re-based the individual figures already on the GW style bases. Best, Dean

  2. They look great, Dean! You're like one of those magicians with a magic hat, only instead of birds and rabbits, you pull troop after troop out of yours. Gotta get me one of those. ;-)

      Thanks again for your visit and kind words. The one caveat is the bases give a large footprint - fine for skirmish. If these weren't on sale, I would've gone for the 5 model trays. That said, I am satisfied with the trays for larger (table size) games like Hail Caesar. Best, Dean

  7. Thanks, Gentlemen. These trays solve the trouble of moving skirmishers quickly in a nice way. Although for certain rules, like WAB, they may need to come of the tray for close combat match ups - unless your opponent is okay with the as is. Best, Dean
