The Saracenes challenge The Duke of Salerno

...and get a severe pounding! This is the main clash of battlelines. They were swaying back and forth, but the saracenes lost 4-1. It's no easy task to win on a pool table against the Lombards when all you got is some Cavalry and Light Horse. After the Light Horse blundered and perished against the knights the spears eventually had to do all the dirty work and in the end the ç&*/(/%&ç%! saracene General (to the left on the picture) got himself killed!

Really superb painting - and a great looking board too - really makes the battle look "alive". A+ work!

Alex - a good ruleset and good looks on the gameboard, thats' all it takes to have fun! That's why I keep on painting 25mm. 15mm is the established DBA-scale and is really handy though...
So I decided to split: medieval armies in 25mm, ancient armies in 15mm.

This blog is dedicated to ancient and medieval miniature wargaming. I'd like to share pictures of my painted armies and models, self made terrain-pieces and sketches of projects still residing in my head or on a piece of paper.
My main interest at the moment is creating armies and accessories, researching for historical or made-up scenarios and campaigns for the fast-play wargaming rules from "De bellis Antiquitatis" (DBA) with 25mm and 15mm figurines.
I use the blog-format rather unconventionaly. It is more like a scrapbook. And I update the older posts so keep checking. I recommend utilizing the labels to the left. So if your just interested in miniatures click the "Miniatures"-label and you will be presented with posts concerning painting, figurines etc. And don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom of the page for more. And many thanks for commenting!
