Battle of Fornovo Rejuvenated!!

After a couple of years of illness etc I'm very pleased to announce that the Battle of Fornovo Demo game is back on the cards and is set for Salute (I hope) in 2016. ~The reason it's not set for next year is that it's the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt and it would be an obvious disservice to the Lance and Longbow Society of which I'm a member to plan another game ahead of Agincourt.

I'm also working on stuff for Agincourt.. All will be revealed on one of my other blogs: La Journee very soon so please watch out for that one. The Agincourt Demo Game will have its debut at Salute 2015 of course.

Before I go it would be rude not to leave you with some images taken from various artists (some contemporary) of the Battle of Fornovo:


  1. Greate to hear that you are better ! Looking forward to follow you Fornovo project.

    Best regards Michael

  2. I am really looking forward to watching this develop. A great battle to choose to do with lots of interesting elements - Swiss pike, Stradiots and loads of French and Italian Men at Arms.

  3. That is something to look forward to!

  4. Michael, Phil, Oli and Simon- Thanks for your words of encouragement. The York show Vapnartak really reminded me of what I had been missing and served as real inspiration to pull up my boot straps and get back into what is in fact a great hobby!
