What I Have Painted Recently

The title almost says it all except I hate photographing miniatures! I never seem to get it right. Anyway here are some photos of my last three mini-projects:

Late Medieval Mounted Archers



These are a mixture of Essex and Roundway figures. The latter needed some card under the bases to avoid too great a difference in height.

ADLG: UK Rankings 2017

To mark the end of the year the BHGS have just released the latest UK rankings.  What I'd forgotten was that my entry in the last round of the Northern League would earn me a national ranking!

Would you believe I am joint 153rd (or should that be joint 152nd) out of 160 ranked players? Never I hear you say! Here's the "proof":

ADLG: Learning Materials Part 3

In Part 1 & Part 2 I released process specific reference sheets and army specific unit cards respectively.  Since then I've played a few more games.  I've found some of the sheets, and all of the units cards, very helpful.  However, I've also spotted some errors; mainly with the cards.



I've now had time to correct the process sheets and unit cards.  I decided to update the link in Part 1 as the change was very minor.  In contrast, I removed the full page image of the unit card from Part 2 because there were two or three things that needed changing.

Northern League - 2017 Review

Doesn’t time fly? Once again it is time to review the state of the Northern League; the wargames competition scene in the North of England.

2017 was a year of change. The League saw its very first Art De La Guerre (ADLG) competition and no Field of Glory (FOG) competitions at all.  The absence of FOG R was deliberate but that of FOG AM was due to lack of support.

One further change was that ADLG introduced a different format for the day: three 2.25 hour games with small 200 point armies. The DBMM format was unchanged from the standard: two 3.50 hour games with 450 point armies.
