Rediscovered some passion and inspiration!!

I'm happy to announce that after four to five years away from wargaming I'm back and I've decided upon a project; The Battle of Fornovo

It's only the beginning but you can read all about it here if you have a mind to:

I will follow! Love your work and I love the battle.

That's very kind of you to say so.

I've just posted a little info about some of the books that I will be using as source material:

Darrell, that is a beautiful looking model. But I can't help think how useful it would be on the battlefield.

Thanks.

During the battle of Fornovo the Italians under Fanceso Gonzaga II undertook a doomed charge headlong into the gushing River Taro. It was to prove to be utterly pointless but no less heroic.

It would be a shame to not attempt to assert the same heroics repeated on the tabletop. If the game turns out not to be so, then I can plonk it in the river as a sidepiece.

Here's a pic from the Fornovo 1495 Osprey Campaign book illustrating the charge:

Kind Regards,
Darrell.
