Choices of the week #22

Hello everyone.Is summer finally here? Yes, we still have rainy, or should I say stormy, days, but the temperatures are finally bearable. It means more family time for us, and less time for painting, unless you're well organized and manage to get some spare time to prime your minis outside. Lucky you. Anyway, on to the review.

Salut a tous. L'ete arrive enfin, du moins par chez nous. JE sais que les orages grondent en France, parfois violemment. Avec le soleil viennent les sorties en famille, quasi-obligatoires, ce qui signifie moins de peinture pour moi. Enfin, en avant pour la serie.


First of all, welcome to my new followers, WINDELS Jean-Charles and Ken Reilly

As usual, we'll start with the batreps. Not a lot this week. And first, a battle set in Esat Africa during the 18th century, with a bit of lace and tricorne. Refreshing:

Next, some lovely pictures from the game hosted by Simon BigredBat:

Next, we have a few interesting posts, starting with a massive tutorial from Massive Voodoo:

Prufrock has posted a nice unusual post about poets who played wargames ;)

Loki has started painted a lot of American war of independance. Follow the posts regularly, because he intends to give some painting guidelines and colours. Like in this post:

THis week has been a real feast for our eyes, with a lot of painted stuff:
Cisza has painted a nice late medieval mob in 15mm, with some conversions:
