Berne baby Berne

On the 6th of Sept at the Partizan wargames show in Newark the 'Bodkins' will be putting on a Swiss Vs Burgundian demo game. 

Dave Andrews, Simon Chick, Darrell Hindley, Andrew Tayor, Matt Bickley and myself  collectively known as 'Bodkins' have decided to form this sometimes group for the purpose of displaying Medieval wargames at shows. 

For many years I have been a big fan of Dave Andrews and Simon Chicks Burgundian wars collections, this will be a dream come true as we pull all our resources and field these wonderful toys on the one table. If you get to the show, I'll be the one with the big smile from ear to ear. I kid you not....for me... It doesn't get any better!

I'll post images from the show.

Above is the first of two Swiss shotte units that I'm finishing for the game.
