Quick Photo Session; Gonzaga Crossing the river Taro

Fornovo was a big passion of mine. It lies on the artificial front of the so called end of the High Middle Ages and the Early Renaissance. A romantic period if there ever was one though not romantic in terms of the vicious warfare of the time! The Fornovo project of mine didn't really take off (except for the Gonzga Crossing the River Taro vignette and a few conversions is about as far as my Fornovo project got (as I got seriously bogged down with the lack of heraldic sources sadly).

It did give me an excuse to get out some of  the Durham club's excellent terrain and set it up nicely for some shots of the Gonzaga vignette for Wargames soldiers and Strategy and their next issue. I think i might have taken the editor Guy, a very lovely chap, aback with the speed that the pics were taken and sent back to him, all being within a few hours since the request.

I cannot show you one of the[pictures taken last evening but I can post  a few close ups on the piece taken a while ago just so you have an idea of what to expect:




Bye for now

  1. Your base looks amazing. We had opportunity to fought Fornovo last week and Gonzaga has no opportunity to cross river Taro!

    1. Yeah Bartek, I saw the game on your blog but haven't had the time to comment as of yet- in the middle of painting for Hastings, moving house and wrestling with Ikea furniture No rest for the wicked :>)

      Fornovo is a bit of a dream of mine to do as a demo game but information on heraldry for the two armies makes for a sadly short list so I was unable to continue the project and have authentic heraldry which sort of defeats the point in my opinion- especially as a demo game for Salute.
