Todd's Workshop/Tobias Capwell- Arrows vs Armour 2 - THE HELMET (fundraiser)

A very worthy cause for anyone interested in Late Medieval warfare, how just effective armours were against the English warbow and at a decent "average" draw weight; and perhaps more importantly, a draw weight which could be repeated .


Please follow the link for all the details on how you can support the project. At the time of typing it is fully funded but the more cash they have access to the more they can investigate this regularly debated topic.

Testudo Miniatures Available Again Soon!

It's not often that I advertise miniatures on my blog but as I have been wishing for, waiting and essentially nagging poor Guiseppe into maybe re-releasing the range some day I do feel somewhat duty bound to do so!

This is legitimately brilliant news for anyone who wants to refight Tannenberg/Grunwald 15 July 1410 complete with early 15th Century nights in flowing robes. There used to also be a lovely complimentary selection of Mounted Russian's too so hopefully we shall seen the return of these too.

The miniatures are modelled specifically for the Tannenberg era but would be used for skirmishes and battles in and around the time period using rules like Lion Rampant, the soon to be released Lion Rampant II and larger battle format games like Swordpoint, Hail Ceasar or indeed, your favourite Medieval rules of choice.

At present I'm not sure where they will be available but will update this post As soon as have that information.

All the images are "clickable" so you can enlarge to a size where the images of the models is clear.

Just Add Water Miniature Painting and Wargaming Blog- 500000 Views! Many, Many Thanks, Part 3!

The last and final part of my celebration of reaching 500000 views. Half a million. sounds like a hell of a lot when I say it out aloud.

Due to my abnormal vulnerability to SARS CoV 2 I have not been able to get out and about to any shows so the final part of the 500000 views celebration will concentrate on the projects I have been working on since the pandemic hit, namely, my Italian Wars Spanish Trastámara army (with a smattering of French in there too), my Anglo Danes and my beloved Early Byzantines! I have included one game played at our local club a few years ago which was an amalgamation of Black Powder and Wargames Research Group Napoleonic Rules! Thus Powdered Barker.

As usual most if not all all the images are "clickable" if you wish to enlarge them.
