A Table For Lloyd - 1500's Japanese Warfare

43 Comments

Take a look at this 28mm representation of Japanese war!!

There's something awesome about the pageantry that is on offer when you see Japanese armies fighting on the tabletop.

The Battle Of Soggy Bottom...In Two Scales

40 Comments

In May 1643, Borsetshire had been rocket by the catastrophe that had befallen the Parliamentarian cause at Lessie's Moor. Alderman Grundy's army had collapsed under the pressure of Prince Philip Frederick's Oxford House.

This is looking awesome in (what we suspect to be) 6mm and 28mm!

The county was now prey to the depredations of the Honourable Freddy's dissipated cronies!

I thought for a second that they were going to anounce a different winner confrontation.
But all went well. Accept that I didn’t win it. 🙂
