I've been trawling through my old website again on the hunt for pictures that could be potentially be rescued from WaybackMachine. It is quite a frustrating process as more often then not the images most desirable for rescue will not link and I find myself just left with the thumbnails which are far too small to republish.

The army has since been rebased a few times for different rules systems before I settled upon a generic style of basing that covers most rule systems- or can be made to do so! :)

As I was saying, I made a real effort to set up each of the bases, which in WAB are supposed to be single miniatures based on a 20mm for Close Order or 25mm for Skirmishers/Light Infantry. This basing convention was excessively restrictive and not at all conducive to the vignette style basing I was aiming to produce. I wanted the miniatures to look as though they were in a fight; the high quality dynamic sculpts simply demanded it!

There are more pictures and a more indepth look at the heraldry (plus some of the army in action at Warhammer World and Alex Buchel's [of Saga fame] Hundred Years War Campaign Weekend) on my Just Add Water Blog blog here:

Gorgeous.  The other angles in the blog post are well worth seeing too.

Hi Atheling,

Have you been able to recover any photos of the WAB medieval days at Nottingham? Seems like a long time ago, now!

PS I saw your question on the SP forum, I did see a blog that had several pictures of that Medieval game at Hammerhead, but in a senior moment can't remember the name! I am amazed that the GB boys didn't take any photos!

I love your work! Can you set up an Instagram account? It is much easier to follow that way.

Thanks Batu. I much prefer old school wargames fora to post up pics but I'm not adverse to Facebook and Twitter- though they are much more ephemeral then a forum.

Can you set up an Instagram account? It is much easier to follow that way.

I've got one but it's quite limited as I use a good camera to take the pictures of my mini's and not my phone so it's a bit of a pain to download images. Also, I keep forgetting to keep it up to date.....  o_o

It was John  lol I'm afraid that WaybackMachine has it's limitations and my site was set up with small thumbnails that needed Flashplayer to open the images, which WaybackMachine doesn'tr seem to support sadly.

I know them well enough to say that they must have had a collective senior moment to forget to take any pictures! Astonishing really  o_o

Excellent work! I really like the stakes mixed with the archers. They must be large bases?
