Blast From The Past VII, Italo-Norman Army



Hi and welcome to another Blast From The Past......

Well, it's been a few weeks so I thought that I ought to pull out the old camera and take a few snaps of at least one of the armies that I promised before the WHW Weekend. So, for now it's the turn of my Italo-Normans. There are still a few bits and bobs that I want to include in the army such as more variation in the Coloni, the addition of a few more Italian/Spanish looking Milites and commands, a unit of Elite Militia and a couple of big units of Levied Militia. There are even a few camp (not that sort of camp!) vignettes that are planned that are actually sitting on my painting table right now. But then again so are my British Kingdoms, my HYW English and my Hamdanid Arabs!!! Hmmm..... I guess it's a case of what grabs my attention first.........

Pics of a few of the British Kingdoms units to follow soon........

A Blast From The Past V


On Sunday I got back from a great weekend at HWHQ and the WHW campaign weekend. It was Age of Arthur all the way for me. special thanks to Jim Sweeney for lending me an army [as mine wasn't finished- yep I know, the shame ;o)] , also to James morris and Steve Jones for running a seamless campaign that was packed with laughs and last but not least all my oponents (Dave, Jack, Ivre, James, and all the skirmishers!) who played within the true spirit of the game and provided a lot of entertainment.
I'm not going to prattle on so I'm here's a few pics that I have selected for your perusal:







There are many more pics and if you have a mind to you can see them all here on the SADWAB Forum:

Hope you enjoyed them......

Darrell.
