Art de la guerre in Montivilliers part 4

Hello everyone.
I'm finally back to blogging after my holidays. Well, I'm back since the 9th of August, but I took some time to read, work and paint a bit. I started a lot of stuff, not really finished anything, you'll see.

Meanwhile, I've just finished making the 4th video from the tournament in Normandy. This time, I face a good player, using a Britto-Roman army, With bits of Arthur in it. This video is a bit more than 6 minutes long. Hope you enjoy.

Oh, and thank you to those who wished me my birthday. Thanks guys, and welcome to Simmy.

Paint Table Saturday: ready for the holidays

Hi everyone.

I told you I had picked up my brushes once again. Today is a bit special, since I'm going for three weeks in places where I won't be able to be connected. But at the same time, I should have enough spare time to paint a bit. I have therefore prepared some stuff:

A small batch of 16 Xyston hoplites  I inted to paint as some sort of black guard, of some tyrant. And next, a s***load of Romans, from Old Glory and Essex. They were amongst my first minis, at a time when you had to buy what you could lay your hands on.... But more importantly, why Romans!!!! I keep saying that I hate Romans. Well, they're for my Spartacus army, and some other projects too ;)

See you in a bit more than 3 weeks.

Syracuse versus Bosphorans: the third episode in my epic saga

Hello everyone.

Being on holidays at your parents' home has a certain appeal: food, nice change of scenery, big garden, and lots of free time without your child...

I've prepped a lot of minis to paint this coming weeks, and I also take time to create videos about my games. Those batreps take a bit of time to do, but I really enjoy doing it. I hope you do too.

Anyway, this time, I played against Karoline, a very nice young woman from Northern France. Though young, she is experienced, and I knew my Syracusan army would be in for a tough game.
