The next opus of Medal of Colors will be held on Saturday, 4th and Sunday 5th, August 2018 in Vienne, France.
For those not familiar with Medal of Colors events, these are miniatures wargaming events in which the narrative and painting sides of the hobby are put at the center. The spirit of Medal of Colors events is to play “fun and friendly battles on nice battleboards with fully painted armies”.

As usual, Remi (Salaise Figurine) and I decided to make a new battle board for the occasion. And I can tell you that we didn’t have to think much on this one. One day, Remi call me and tell me: “Hey Matt, you won’t believe what I found on eBay! I found a complete set of the old Forge World Imperial Fortress.” We both had been dreaming about building such a board and it was finally time to tackle this dream ^^
For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, here is a picture of the beast:
Yeah, you know what I mean XD
This thing is huge! So we decided to make it the central piece of the board and divide the board in two parts. On one side it willl be the surroundings of the fortress with bunkers and craters. On the other side, it will be the inner part of the fortress with buildings and manufacturom. Connecting the two, there will be a road with oldschool Forge World roads (also found by Remi on eBay, I think we can start calling him the “Forge World Oldies Hunter of eBay”).
The table will be pretty straitforward overall but with the fortress as a huge central piece I fear that anything else would be superfluous. What do you think?
