Hi, no painted miniatures today... No, today I share with you all my archives about AGMAT France! This small French company was the french connexion of Games Workshop during the 80's and was in charge to translate English products of GW to the French gamers. In the early 90's this company became GW France. AGMAT worked on Hordes Sauvages rules (Ravening Hordes), Le Herault Citadel magazine(Citadel Journal) and Chaos fanzine (Black and White short magazine). In France during 80's, the only way to find some news about Citadel miniatures and Games Worshop was to buy French Role Playing Games magazines... Until AGMAT France was born . The AGMAT touch was they added their own painted miniatures to their translation, of course, the skills of the French painters studio was far from their partners of Nothingham studio but these pics converted a lot of young gamers to the fantasy wargaming during this period, me the first!
The WHFB 2nd ed was tranlated in 1986, Hordes Sauvages (Ravening Hordes) was translated in 1988. The difference with the English edition, is that you can find some new rules to play like the 3rd ed (Yep! the 3rd ed was never translated). French gamers played to warhammer with this wargame system until 1992.
Miniatures are painted by the AGMAT studio. The Fortress is awesome dont you think? Click on the pics and download them for better resolution.
Le Herault Citadel, six issues since April 1986 to November 1988. It was an irregular magazine equivalant to the Citadel Journal.
