Re: Lettering on Swedish flag

Turrabear, This flag is one from Schlammersdorf's regiment. Check out page 44 of Brzezinski's "The Army of Gustavus Adolphus 1 Infantry" published by Osprey for a black and white picture of all the flags for this regiment. They are all green and white with gold lettering, I believe. A colour version...

Sarsfield's Horse, 1690

Actually finished before my attempt at Montpuillan's Regiment, using Reiver Castings. Two squadrons and toting the current royal standard as I could find no definitive evidence to say exactly what it looked like then.

Regiment Montpuillan, 1690

One of the Dutch horse regiments sent to Ireland, I took the uniform details from Grant's "Armies of Marlborough's Wars, vol 1" (grey/ white coat, lining and cuffs is all he lists, however) and used a large (read "enormous") dose of guessing and creativity for the flag. The regiment's CO is listed i...

Re: FOW How to Start?

I recently went through this process. The main issue I had was not one of scale but of exactly what to collect from six years of varied, worldwide conflict that saw such rapid weapons development. In the end, I simply went with a particular formation, in my case, 2nd SS Panzer Division "Das Reich". ...

Re: Anglo-Scots Wars, c1300 - Robert, Lord Clifford

Up to a whole two figures now on this project, as Lord Clifford has been joined by Nicholas Stapleton. As I have now built all of the Fireforge Games Teutonic knights I am anglicising to get this started, there may be a few more soon!

Anglo-Scots Wars, c1300 - Robert, Lord Clifford

After the random purchase of the Fireforge Teutonic Knights a month or so ago, I started in earnest with a few sample English knights from the Bannockburn era. I am struggling to add photos to my posts (PC literate, me???), but you can check out some piccies at http://geez-spot.blogspot.com (I think...

2nd SS "Das Reich" for Flames of War

I am not a WW2 gamer (one game in a decade perhaps), but the Stafford Gamers are doing a Flames Of War version 3 league, so thought I would maybe join in. I do not like the little infantry bases featured in the rules, so went with tanks for my "1500pts". I may get used to the bases in future and wil...

Re: Huguenot regt de la Melonaire

Ray, Nice work. Reminds me very much of Tudor flags (apart from the Huguenot cross!). You have seen my take on this regiment on my blog, but the file is too big to post here. For anyone else interested, check it out on www.geez-spot.blogspot.com in my 1690 section. (At least, I think that is the add...

Re: Russo-Japanese War. Japanese Cavalry

Very tidy Ray.

What rules are you looking at for this?

I last saw this period many moons ago in some secondhand copies of Miniature Wargames I bought when getting into "proper" wargaming.

Look forward to seeing some Russians.

Re: Terrain for demo game at Wargamer show in December

Tony,

Looking forward to it.
Just a week to go.
Just as long as I can get the Swedish Yellow Regt finished and the Imperialist Aldringen one.....all will be fine!

See you there,

Seven Years War in India

Hello all. It is about this time of year when my thoughts drift to future projects and one which I have a firm interest in from initial reading is the 7 Years War in India. I can source a few figures (in both 15 and 28mm), but have never gamed in this period before, let alone this rather off-beat pa...
