Re: How to make prussian brigade at Blenheim.

I suggest you use some "artistic license" and put the units on the Table as you see fit and count them on your sheet how strong they really are. I think to remember that we used that scheme in RtE as well, for the same purpose.

Re: 17th Century Naval Games

Seems you have got your hands full on a modelling scale :D :wink:

1/450th Scale you say? Pretty large. You know those two Companies and their 1/450th Ranges I presume

https://minairons.eu/en/76-1-600-catalogue - 1/450th is part of that

Re: Gardes de Baviere & Gardes de Cologne

I looked also in Mathias von der Schulenburg's Book, as it was somewhere stated that he had taken command of a Force at Malplaquet but I could not find anything in his Book. Sorry.

Re: Gardes de Baviere & Gardes de Cologne
