Choices of the week#21

I seem to suffer the common painting blues, meaning I know I want to paint, but I'm not in the mood to do it. Almost every evening, I prepare my desk, but then, put everything back, and go watch the TV or read a book. Damn. It's been like this for a month now. And to make matters worse, my daughter was sick, and then I caught a cold. bugger. Anyway, I still manage to read the blogs and, though I don't comment every time (sorry about that), I keep doing my homework ;)


As usual, to start the review, we'll have a look at the batreps.
We're going first to the VBCW, using a nice FT-17:

Next, a big game of Muskets and Tomahawks:

James is still playing his campaign, and Hannibal seems to have taken quite a beating. Damn!

The Posties have played another game, the battle of Megara. I took sides and decided to report the point of view of the victors. Sparta! (sorry Ray, boy lover, you're no real man)

Next we have a nice game of Chain of Command:

And we have the battle of Poitiers, the one set in 1356, played by... French gamers. Come on guys, where is your honour?

Now, the miscellanous stuff, including tutorials, wips and conv. Starting with the pics from Partizan who took place yesterday. Kinda cool, under tents.

  6. Nice choices Seb - honoured you liked my Indian infantry. (They're Hindus, rather than Sikhs though) ;-)
