Inspired by the latest Borgias series,and the Warlord Games Pike and Shotte rules,its time for me to start a new wargames period. The army of Cesare Borgia and hopefully some opponents. All in glorious 28mm.
Aut Cesar, Aut Nihil, Wargaming the Borgias.

You can never have enough Cesare's.
I am now the proud owner? of three versions of my general, Cesare Borgia. Two are by Willie and one by Wargames Foundry. However after buying this painted Willie general from Tony Runkee, I have decided to make this chap the definitive Cesare, the others are clearly impostors.
I thought I should include a floozy [courtesan ] and a clerical adviser to emphasize the status of this figure.
I am currently working my way through a German television production of the Borgis,titled funnily enough The Borgia. This is a very good series, obviously not as well financed as the British version, but actually still very good. The script has actually attempted to follow the history. The speech is actually in English and is worth a punt. Recommended is the amount of political skulduggery in the production, closely followed by the violence and sex. There is a further two series to view, so I will reserve my final judgement until after I have seen the whole series.
