You can read all about our jaunt into pyromania and see many more pics of the game as usual on my Just Add Water blog here: http://justaddw...

Re: Hastings Demo 2016; Whole Huscarl Unit Larger Pics Added

I was up very early this morning and had the time to get this vignette finished off. In truth all I did was to add the extra grass tufts, wait for the glue to dry and dry brush then a little. The painting styles are a mix of ten years ago and now (more about that on my blog) so they may appear somew...

Re: Hastings Demo 2016; whole Huscarls Unit Pic Added 10.01.

I've taken some pics of the whole front rank, I guess you would call it a unit although it will be backed with a rank of Ceorl bases of which I'll take a pic of when I have found a background big enough to manage both units- any suggestions? I do need to take some larger pics too! Overall I'm quite ...

We played a rather entertaining game of Haggis (Lion) Rampant at the club Thursday gone. with the return of student James we decided to abandon for one week the campaign and go for a four player a side English vs Scots/Islemen bash. Much fun was had by all- the rules always seem to produce a laugh a...

Hastings Demo 2016; Cavalry Test Base

I've been messing around with base sizes for the 40 plus cavalry that I now have painted for the Hastings demo game.
