Photos From the Recent El Cid Game

I had meant to post these a while ago, but I plead real life (it's down to the last 2 week of term and I had a ton of marking to get through).

The superb quality is once again down to having our artist gamer Sean take the photos.   Don't expect anything I take to be anything near as good as these!
Castillian right wing.  I should have deployed the Hidalgos in front of the militia cavalry (instead of behind), in all fairness to Sean.

Zaragozan defensive position

I am either sneezing or confused or possibly both!

Close up of the Castillian cavalry

Same spot, different focal point.

Andalusian infantry with Sylvain moving elusively behind.

Castillian right wing slingers with Cavalry and militia in the background.

Muslim light cavalry with Sylvain doing his Flash imitation beyond.  He's obviously bent on raiding the bottle of red wine on the counter.

An idyllic scene ti you notice the Castillian army in the distance.

Sylvain moves his Andalusian heavies through an orange grove.  

Oh my gosh Sylvain slowed down enough to be in focus!

The bishop Jeromino looking less saintly!




  1. Great looking game and everyone looks to having an enjoyable time!

    1. Thanks, it was fun and we had good wine!

  2. Very nice pics of some very nice figures (to understate things!)

    1. Thanks Ross
      I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. It was good to get lots of figs in table.
      PS sorry to hear about Hector, he was a good cat!

  3. Some great pics, looks like a lot of fun.

  4. Thanks Ray. Everything's better with enough wine!
    It was fun, and having quality pics is great. I should have more up later this week.

  5. Hi Peter,

    "....and thus the Cid rode out of the lounge and into the wine cellar of history...." Great looking game old chap and the figures are quite superb!

    All the best,


    1. Cheers DC

      Thanks - I am quite pleased with how well everything looks on table. As modellers we sometimes get too involved in the close up and see the flaws. BU on table the 2 foot rule comes into play and the best features are what stand out.
