"With a Swedish connection - Life and Death of an Italian Condottiere" in Wargames, Soldier and Strategy Issu 81



Wargames, Soldier and Strategy Issu 81 that will be released on November 1st, 2015 and have the theme "The rise of the Condottieri". I managed to get an article in "With a Swedish connection - Life and Death of an Italian Condottiere". This is long from my usual Swedish focus, but I did find a god and solid Swedish connection... ;)

You can order your copy here

The article includes a Lion Rampant scenario that I hope you like. For the magazine article Michael Perry was very kind and helped me out with some greate pictures of his stunning italian war miniatures, very appreciated !

Below you can find some pictures from one of our playtes games at the club, as we don´t have many Italian war minis in our collections my 15th centery Swedes have to do service for the game, Jonas and Sören each provided a unit of splendid painted Pikemen.

In the game we used one Base of mins equaling one miniature in Lion Rampant, i.e. A unit of foot serjants that usually are 12 minis was in our game 12 bases with 4 minis on each totaling 48 minis! Big Lion Rampant ;)
