I've been trawling through my old website again on the hunt for pictures that could be potentially be rescued from WaybackMachine. It is quite a frustrating process as more often then not the images most desirable for rescue will not link and I find myself just left with the thumbnails which are far too small to republish.

As I was saying, I made a real effort to set up each of the bases, which in WAB are supposed to be single miniatures based on a 20mm for Close Order or 25mm for Skirmishers/Light Infantry. This basing convention was excessively restrictive and not at all conducive to the vignette style basing I was aiming to produce. I wanted the miniatures to look as though they were in a fight; the high quality dynamic sculpts simply demanded it!

There are more pictures and a more indepth look at the heraldry (plus some of the army in action at Warhammer World and Alex Buchel's [of Saga fame] Hundred Years War Campaign Weekend) on my Just Add Water Blog blog here:

Henry V and his Heraldic Banner Bearer, Sir John Codrington along with the John de Vere, Earl of Oxford.


Sir Thomas Erpingham and Archers

And a few pics, again rescued from WaybackMachine of my army in the thick of it at Alex's Hundred Years War Campaign weekend in Notts many a moon back:

A Henry! A Henry! A Saint George!

Thanks guys. Appreciated as always.

Thanks Chris.

The miniatures have since migrated into other armies and been rebased. It was really something finding WaybackMachine as I honestly thought my old website long gone. Unfortunately WaybackMachine doesn't support Flashplayer which means most of my pictures are lost but it was great to be able to retrieve at least a few. :)

I feel your pain Darrell, i have lost so many pictures from back in the day! Still nice you found some to share again.

Thanks Chris.

It's a real bummer. I used to take a lot of pictures of just about every game we played for years, actually decades. I lost many images when I closed my website which was a bit of a Duh! moment on my part- I should haven saved the images before shutting down the site!.

I've also had a few laptops die on me and haven't been able to retrieve very many of the pictures. Two of two drives on those laptops were wiped so I suspect a virus of some sort. I'm not an IT guy my any means but it did seem very odd that the drives were wiped clean.

I friend who fixes all things PC and Laptop related suggested that it was either a virus or the power dying but I fail to see how running out of power could wipe a drive(???). As I say, it's not my "thing" so who knows.
