Salute 2016 – Ancients & Medieval

For the Ancient and Medieval eras less caught my eye at Salute 2016 than in previous years, but amongst those was my favourite of the show – The Battle of Foteviken 1134 by Dalauppror. A lot more photos on their own site, so I suggest you head over.

The Battle of Magnesia 190 BC by the Society of Ancients was played out using the Lost Battle rules. Wonderful armies for my favourite period in history, unfortunately I didn’t manage to return to the table later to take more detail shots.
