Continuing with my obsession with all things Medieval...

I have been painting up some Swiss (perry miniatures plastics) to fight my Burgundians...

But then I started painting up HYW mounted French...

To fight my English...
But then I started more Burgundians...

Not sure what I'm doing next but I'm enjoying myself somewhere between the years of 1340 and 1470.

Crecy period project

My Crecy period collection. I'm a big fan of the Grail Quest books by Bernard Cornwell. I plan a small game based on a scene set in the books for second Partizan. Thanks for all the comments  I'm still having issues replying to comments on this blog.

Symposium Roundup

Some images of the activities at the Wargames Hobby Craft Symposium. The event was intended to be "something different" and it was. We had sculpting, terrain making, painting clinics as the core of the events with display and participation games and a painting competition in the main hall. The whole thing was intended to be a chance for hobby enthusiasts to get together, learn and share ideas in small groups. The clinics were designed to be conversations and interactive rather than just showing skills.

 My thanks to Thomas Foss, Matthew Bickley, Carl Robson, Jim Masson, Steve Rimmer, Iain Mcdonald, Derek Rolland, Arlynne Gold, Finn Gold-Imrie, the Methil Sea Cadets, James Sharpe and  Co organiser Nichol Murray, who all worked to make it a quality event.

Army painter kindly supplied the paints and brushes for the Painting Clinics. Well done you guys for supporting us.

The painting competition had entries of the highest standards and I will do a separate post about that as there was some true eye candy on show.
