Introduction



I was given this book by my wife for Christmas in 1994. It features stunning images of the company of St George- a reenactment group founded by John Howe ( he , of the Tolkien art fame) and Gerry Embleton. The 15th century comes to life before ones eyes and I was hooked on the period..

Fourteen years later , with my regular opponent Phil having raised both a Burgundian and a Swiss army, I am finally launching forth into collecting an Imperialist army of 1474. I had begun a French army of the 1460's but my heart was not in it at all. So I fixed upon an opportunity to model those "High Medieval Gothic" troops I have held in my mind for years. So another Blog begins - do let me know your ideas and keep reading these pages. I hope to celebrate the 15th century in all its colourful glory and spectacle. Enjoy...

Good luck with the new blog. What scales(s) do you wargame in?

I wargame in 25/28mm mainly, although I have used 15mms in the past on occasion. I prefer 25mms as I can see them better...

Alan,

Yet another blog? Oh, my!

One of the best pieces of advice having to do with army selection is to "pick an army you can love even in defeat". It sounds like perhaps you've done that.
