Welcome to my blog!
Welcome! The intention of my Blog is to chart my experiences gaming what has become my favourite historical period- the Early Italian wars. In particular the armies and campaigns of the "Warrior Pope"-Julius II. At a later point I shall post up good photos of my units which are in 28mm and are all mainly Foundry and Perry figures. There is some Old glory in their too. A vast majority of the figures were painted by my chum Cardinal Biggles, whose painting services i thoroughly recommend. Others were panitng by another mate, Thoran Braune and the rest by me! The overall intention is to eventually run a campaign in Italy in the first decade of the 16th century. Over the last week i have played two games one at my club using Bad War rules and the other at a mates place using a variant of Black Powder. I must say the Black Powder variant gave an extremely fun game and i think I may be going with these rules from now on! I will post up a battle report from last night later today.
