Piracy on the high seas of... Leighton Buzzard!

Leighton Buzzard is not normally associated with Piracy on the high seas, nor is it twinned with any exotic ex-Colonial cities from far flung continents (although being twinned with a town called Titisee is admittedly vaguely amusing).



But, even so it was the venue for the latest round of the UK FoGR One-Day Competition ....and so on a bright Sunday morning my Buccaneers yet again took to the table in a flurry of bad dice, even worse puns, and some oddly appropriate commentary on lawn care !


Read on for all three reports!

Burton Doubles 2016 - the Multimedia Extravaganza!

Burton, a classic and historic venue ... the ideal setting for a video and audio online multi-platform interactive assault on common sense and common decency as Madaxeman.com launches a PODCAST... and a VIDEO PODCAST to supplement the match reports!!


See (and hear) how the Triumverate Roman & Jewish army fared against the Romano-British & Patricians, 3K Chinese & Hsiung Nu, Armenians & Romans and Parthians (Elemayan) & Hatrenes in 4 separate fully detailed ADLG match reports!


Or, you can just read the damned things on the web just like in the olden days ...

QR Miniatures Pancerni

Just realised that I'd not posted any pictures of the Pancerni after putting up some carbine-armed horse from QR of Poland.

Well, here they are (click on any photo for a larger version)


I added the rather oversized lance myself - I think the figures actually come with swords and stuff, but I seem to have mislaid some of the hands (which are separate)


Nice to see someone actually shooting a carbine from horseback





This shows them next to Old Glory Pancerni. They are a little less bulky in these shots, but on the table the difference is really not noticeable at all.

PIRATES! The Buccaneers return in 4 more match reports

The "I can't believe it's a serious army choice" Buccaneers return in 4 match reports from the BHGS Doubles, taking on opponents from the year 1695 in a fury of pirate-based action.


See a 900AP Pirate army in action against non-historical and entirely infeasible opponents such as The Tatars, The Anglo-Dutch, The French and finally, The Poles and Lithuanians as Piracy reaches shorelines previously thought safe from the scourge of the Caribbean (especially the Tatars, on account of Mongolia technically being land-locked).

The reports even feature proper maps and stuff so you can make some sense of the action, as well as just being vaguely amused by the bits I've spliced into the reports..

The Pirate Ship is now finished...

The Old Glory 8 Gun Barque is now finished... completing the Pirate army








I must admit to being quite pleased with it. Admittedly the rigging is a bit, well, jerry-rigged, but it does allow me to take the masts down for transport and storage - and it allows you to see the deck and crew very well too.

Lots more photos on my Facebook page

Great Service from Old Glory 15's

Not really news as such, but I just wanted to post a public thanks to Old Glory 15's, who managed to get an order fulfilled, out and posted to a US address I was due to be visiting (to take advantage of their US post-free rate for large orders) - and all during the week before they went on site to Historicon as well

I'm now the happy owner of a huge number of 15mm Renaissance Old Glory figures - watch out for them being painted over the next few months!
