Medal of Colors Horus Heresy 2017 – Part1

On last Saturday August, 5th 2017, my friend Rémi and I had the honor to host the Medal of Colors – Horus Heresy 2017 in Vienne, France.

For those not familiar with Medal of Colors events, this is a new concept of miniatures wargaming events where we put the cinematographic and painting sides of the hobby at the center. The spirit of Medal of Colors events is to play “fun and friendly battles on nice battleboards with fully painted armies”.
If you want to see more pics of the previous Medal of Colors, here are the links of the corresponding articles:

This was the second edition of this event on the theme of the Horus Heresy and it was a great success! All the players came with beautiful and diverse armies, we were really impressed by the higher level of painting and conversion overall. The playing atmosphere was friendly with a high level of fairplay! So thanks again everyone for making this event such a great moment!
