A new year is starting, a new idea is slowly coming up. Like many of you, I spend a lot of time browsing the net, reading other blogs, forums... Most of the time, I enjoy what I'm reading, but sometimes, there is just that je ne sais quoi, that makes a post superior to the others, and worth bookmarking. It might be because of a tip, a very well written battle report, or simply a stunning piece of lead, so well painted I'm learning from it.
Une nouvelle annee debute, et de nouvelles idees germent. Comme beaucoup d'entre vous, je passe trop de temps sur le net 9blogs, forum... La plupart du temps, ca me divertit, mais parfois, je tombe sur de vrais trucs originaux, interessants... Bref, un truc qui fait un effet boeuf: belle fig, belle unite, une chouette table. Du coup, j'ai decide, tous les dimanche de faire une petite selection des posts que j'ai vraiment apprecies. Pour ce premier numero, beaucoup de posts etaient consacres aux retrospectives 2013, mais il y avait quelques perles.
Therefore I've decided, each Sunday, to post my selection of interesting posts ( I regularly follow almost 600 blogs). This past week has been mainly about wrap-ups of 2013, but you could still find some originality on the web.
We'll start with a very nicely painted crusader army, painted with oils. This French blogger, Gilles, is very talented:
Next, some stunning hospitaliers pictures from the Anderson collection:
Then, Monty's entry about a Scot warband for SAGA, which I like:
If you like Republican Romans, here are two different posts, with two different styles, but equally pleasing:
Another blog, another period: Silver Wistle shows us a wonderfully laid out WW2 table, honestly, it looks good. and he intends to play with everything too. Lucky b******:
And finally, a battle report using Sharp Practice, but with a War of the Roses settings. Interesting:
Ok, time to go back to my brushes, I have a lot coming up ;)
And welcome to Eric the Shed and cbhollowell
