I found these many moons ago, and now, of course, cannot find them again. Hopefully, someone has a link to what I am talking about, or can direct me to something similar.
It was essentially a top-down view of a medieval battlefield, complete with battered shields and broken weapons, as well as, I think some bones, that could be printed out and then glued to cardboard, linoleum floor tile, or whatever, and with the help of some folded clear plastic and a couple of staples, could be used as a base for miniatures.
Any help would be much appreciated. I will continue my search, and if I ever do find it, I'll post a link.
I appreciate it, but all of that is on the wayback machine, only the waback doesn't seem to be picking it up.
Speaking of Agincourt, though, I did find this, www.donatoart.com/gallery/agincourtmiddleb.html which is a top-down view of an artist's conception of the battlefield. I shrunk it a bit so it would be just about 25mm scale, maybe a little smaller. It can serve as a base. Nice, though 'busy', and it would give something of the effect of the dead and wounded being trampled by fresh troops. Vicious, but effective, I think
Note that I hope the link to the artwork itself doesn't violate the rules here. I have not grabbed or modified it, at least not here, and it is certainly legal to point out the artwork itself, and even to print and modify it for personal use.
However, if I have broken the rules, please just erase the link.
Just did a quick text on the archived Zio Prudenzio items linked-to above, and WaybackMachine seems to redirect the links to a different place among the archives, but the elements for all three games do download fine after that, and are all still available there. You do need to click on the tiny red arrows though, as the old hyperlinks from the map and mini images don't seem to have been archived.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
