I Used To Be Mystified Now I’m Addled

Posted on November 10th, 2017 under , . Posted by

In October 2010 I changed my main ancient and medieval wargames rules from DBMM to Field of Glory (FOG).  As of this month I have switched again.  This time from FOG to Art de la Guerre (ADLG).

I’m finally attending a Conquest again. I always used to play Flames of War but this seems to be AWOL. If it is there, it must be a secret club. So here is my different 15mm historical tournament army: 200pt Late Romans (East) with  allied Armenia…

It’s been a while since I wrote a competition report. In fact it’s over two years! My last report was in July 2015 for the Stoke Challenge.

I didn’t realise it had been so long. Anyway, last Sunday I finally got myself organised and played in the f…

Having been painting, making and generally faffing around and not quite finishing my 28mm Patrician Roman army for the last 18 months, the annual Derby competition suddenly hove into view and offered up not one, but two opportunities to put the figures…

L’Art de la Guerre (ADLG) Batrep
