Swiss Roll Call

All done and just in time before I set off for the show.

Wednesday, 2 September 2015


I have been busy the last two evenings basing up the Burgundian army  for the demo game at Partizan this Sunday (6th September) at Kelham Hall. This is only one of the Burgundian collections that will be on show as Simon Chick will be fielding his, along with Dave Andrews and Simon's Swiss.

Sadly, I have sold my Burgundian army, painted By Darren Linington and myself, to Ken Pearce but good old ken has loaned it back for me to use at the show. He has added some figure by unknown painters. One of these additions is the command base pictured above. I would really like to identify the figures used in the command base...if anyone can help?

I will be rebuilding a Swiss and Burgundian collection at some point :)

This game at Salute will be a real pleasure for me to be involved with!

Berne baby Berne

On the 6th of Sept at the Partizan wargames show in Newark the 'Bodkins' will be putting on a Swiss Vs Burgundian demo game. 

Dave Andrews, Simon Chick, Darrell Hindley, Andrew Tayor, Matt Bickley and myself  collectively known as 'Bodkins' have decided to form this sometimes group for the purpose of displaying Medieval wargames at shows. 

For many years I have been a big fan of Dave Andrews and Simon Chicks Burgundian wars collections, this will be a dream come true as we pull all our resources and field these wonderful toys on the one table. If you get to the show, I'll be the one with the big smile from ear to ear. I kid you not....for me... It doesn't get any better!

I'll post images from the show.

Above is the first of two Swiss shotte units that I'm finishing for the game.
