Thureophoroi















Here are two units of Hellenistic Thueophoroi that I've just finished painting. The figures are mainly Old Glory with Crusader Miniatures command and Foundry Greek Peltasts with thureoi added. I have another unit of Relic Miniatures thureophoroi to paint at some stage.

I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy gaming, painting and blogging for 2017!

Vikings versus Anglo-Saxons - L'Art de la Guerre Game

Well it has been pretty quiet on the gaming, blogging and painting front lately. Last Saturday afternoon I went over to Craig's place and we played a Vikings versus Anglo-Saxons game of L'Art de la Guerre with 150 points, two corps and two commanders a side. I was the attacker with my Vikings while Craig was the defender with his Saxons. The game quickly developed in to two distinct battle lines with the Mounted Saxons taking on the Viking Bondi and the Viking Hirdmen and Bondi slogging it out with the Saxon Huscarls and Select Fyrd. Eventually the Vikings wore the Saxons down and they became demoralised.  It was a good, grinding shieldwall encounter - thanks to Craig for a fun game.
