Wargames Illustrated - words and pictures

Just a short post, to say that I've an article to be published in the November 2019 issue of 'Wargames Illustrated' magazine (number 385).


It's about how I've assembled my army of Charles the Bold over the last few years, largely using the Perry Miniatures range of figures, along with the conversion and modifications that I've done, in an attempt to recreate the look of a Burgundian army based on the evidence that exists and that I've been able to access.


For those who've followed this blog for any length of time, there's probably very little that is new to you. Writing the article this summer however, has prompted me to revisit this collection - ahead of putting more time and focus on building my Swiss Confederation army - and so the recent bits and pieces that I've done (the mounted longbowmen and their horseholders), or which are now planned, have been a result of this.

Anyway, happy reading for those of you who do buy the magazine...

  6. Looks like this will be an interesting article. I've also been published in the same issue about my 'imagi-nation', the Barryat of Lyndonia. I'm still eagerly awaiting the issue to arrive in new Zealand.

  7. Just read the article and liked it very much!
    (And I am a true Burgundian, I was born and raised in Dijon and live in Chalon. It was fun to read about my region and its history in an English magasine!)

    Best wishes.
