Impetus


Gaulois Noble Cavalry 28mm Victrix

Off the table this week more additions to the Aulerci Diablintes, this time Noble heavy cavalry, I have four more bases to complete to finish the cavalry. The Victrix cavalry are quite nice with lots of movement, my only complaint are the ears of the horse which are facing sideways, not forward or back. I used LBM transfers for the shields which are a little difficult but worth the effort. The checked fabric worked out quite well, a lot more to go, based for Impetus, I do need to add some tufts when they arrive.The desk is very busy at the moment with multiple periods underway to meet the demand of upcoming Wargame events at L'Hotel de Hercé in the next few weeks.Enjoy the picsCheersMatt

28mm scale Saxon Church

The print came out great.  The total run time was just over 36 hours.  This time I made sure that the first level was put down to the glass bed with no problems.  The two 28mm figures are to show the size of the church.   Currently make the walls for the Norman Castle.   Each wall section run for 24 hours.  Looks like this will take a week or two to complete.   Hope this will inspire people to try 3d printing to their game table

Basing for 28mm Impetus rules.

I'm in the middle of re basing my ancients for Impetus.  If figured I have the rules and troop, so why not.  I was using sabot with 20 mm round bases.  It has turned out to be a pain in the butt.  The keep falling out of the sabot.  The plan was to convert them over to magnets.  But why, it is not needed for Impetus.  Beside my Saga troops and ECW are setup for 25 mm round bases with magnets. Below is the official Impetus basing for 28 mm Impetus is a 28mm scale wargaming system by Dadi & Piombo that can be used for Ancients, Medieval or Renaissance periods.
