Renaissance Projects

The first army I properly completed, was for the Renaissance period - French Wars of Religion Huguenots for Armati.
At the time, we played a lot of Armati Renaissance in the club.  That has slipped now, mostly due to the appallingly slow delivery of the oft promised Armati Renaissance rules.
But the figures remain - see the subpage below for them.


Armati Renaissance 2 has now had a first draft submitted back, which is promising.

As part of that process, the points system was published.  I reproduce that below for convenience with the caveat that it is still officially WIP and may be altered.
