Claymore 2014: A Great Show!- This Saturday 2nd August.

For my friends North of the Border with whom I spent many an hour wargaming with at the SESWC Wargames Club. Claymore is certainly the best show in Scotland and rivals many of the larger English shows IMHO. Made some great friends there too who I will be catching up with this weekend.

Be there or be square as they say! There will of course be a full report on my Just Add Water Blog

Battle of San Romano, Large Illustrative Pics- Well Worth Viewing!!


I recently came across some very detailed and large (for the net) pictures of then Battle of San Roman 1432. although they were painted much later in the style of the 1450's (In my opinion- they are supposed to have been commissioned somewhere between 1435-1460 but the armour styles are more fitting for the 1450's) they still give an extremely evocative picture of Late Condottiere Warfare in Italy.
To quote Wikipedia:

You will have to excuse the overlap but I wanted the pictures of the painting to be as large as possible so that you can take in the breathtaking detail.
