White Armor

Well, the crew at the AGC are embarking on a new project, late medieval.  When I originally broached the idea I had visions of Italy in the second half of the 15th century.  Everyone raises their own condotterei band and we have swirling battles of shifting alliances.

No plan ever survives first contact with the enemy. 

Which is cool.  We're all painting in roughly the same time period, some people are sticking to Italy and others...well, lets just say both the houses of York and Lancaster are making appearances.  And I really can't complain much.  Turns out my own army is slowly morphing into that of Charles the Bold of Burgundy.  Which is an army I already have in 15mm but this is a 28mm effort.  But hey, already did the research!  (who says historians can't be lazy)  I have a feeling at some point I'll be doing some Swiss, but most likely I will end up doing French troops for the era as well.  At some point, hopefully within a month or so, we'll get a game going and I'll post some pics.

No worries though...we are still doing the 1812 thing as well. 

Is it possible for a whole gaming club to suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder?

  1. I still have to decide on Lancastrian or Yorkist...neither side was "good" (naive sounding, I know)...

  2. Many many many years ago when wife 1.0 worked for the 'Q, she bought be a bunch of WOTR 25mm Old Glory. She was very much entranced with Queen Margaret, so they started being Lancastrian, but after she became ex-wife 1.0 they started drifting into Yorkist territory. You're right, neither side is "good".

  4. Or better yet Kev, be like the chairman of the board and be a Do-Bee-Do.

    (I had a sgt one time who at roll call would tell everyone to be a good do-bee, no one was old enough to remember Romper Room and she just got strange looks)
