Historical Warrior Illustration Series Part XXXI

Ugo Pinson

I’d really like to get my hands on this illustrators work in an English translation.  If anyone ever finds that his work has been reprinted in English please let me know.  If you’d like to find out more about him you can find him here.



This time period stands out in much of Chinese lore and history, and I’m intrigued to see it fleshed out by Sega and Creative Assembly in the Fall.

Crusader Kings II

Jade Dragon

This ever expanding grand strategy wargame has taken up many hours of my historical nerd time.  I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to visit a well researched living map of the medieval world.  I’m excited to see what is presented in the medieval China addition presented in Jade Dragon.

Modern Medieval Combat

International Medieval Combat Federation 2017

I’ve been following the highlights of these modern clashes of metal for a couple years and figured I’d add them to the collection of the clash of historical warriors.  You can find more content  at https://www.medieval-combat.net/…

Battle of Nations 2017

And at http://botn.info/en/.  Both of the these events just blow me away on how people take these blows and keep going.  Even though the weapons are blunted it’s probably the best example of how these conflicts would have been like in terms of speed and chaos.


First couple episodes have come out and I’m holding out hope that this series will gain enough traction that it will be able to correct the places where it falls short.  Till then I’ll continue to watch like a true sucker for these historical fictions that depict the clash of cultures in Europe.

Furious – The Legend Of Kolovrat

Another Russian film that I’m intrigued to find.  The film is based on the period when Russia was under control of the Golden Horde.  Ryazan knight Evpaty Kolovrat,  is the leader of the squad, which decides to fight back khan Batu, who divided Russia.

The plot is based on The Tale of the Destruction of Riazan, a medieval military tale about the capture of the city of Ryazan by the Mongolsin 1237 and is one of the best sources of the Mongol invasion of Russia
