The Panorama of the Battle of Murton


I came accross this panoramic view of a painting depicting the Battle of Murton a few years ago (I think from the MABMed Yahoo Group). The picture above is just one tiny piece of the full painting. Anyway, it is a fantastic piece of work as you can pick out all the details by moving around the picture, by zooming in and out.

Give it a go, you won't regret it!

Just Pondering.....

So, what to give a lick of paint to first? I've put together some crossbowmen, some pike and a command group. All they need is priming and undercoating and then I'm ready to go.

I quite fancy a stand of crossbows first but the 'romanticism' of the pike and the command do beckon!

Well, within the next few days I'll have a few mini's to show intermingled with a bit of military history to boot.

In the mean time, here's Schiiling's depiction of the Battle of Grandson:


Don't forget that you can enlarge the image by clicking on it.
