Re: Austro-Turkish War (1663–64)

I have seen suggestions to use TYW figures.
The Assault Group have some Croats and Hungarians. Ottoman Tufecis might also work as foot.

Re: North Star 1672 & Phoenix Miniatures

King's carbine had some really nice ideas (and drawings). I doubt if the 1672 range is a big seller for North Star. Perhaps if they were marketed as government troops in their pirate range they would sell better. Unless you know what you are looking for sometimes finding stuff on the North Star site...

New 18mm WSS line

Khurasan Miniatures announced a new WSS line in 15/18mm:

They look really nice in the preview. These may become the best 15/18mm available, if they actually complete the line.

Re: North Star 1672 & Phoenix Miniatures

I would add: *Generic musketeer based on the Swiss musketeer *as above, but without apostles (see Osprey Louis XIV French Garde, plate B1) *Generic pikemen based on the Swiss pikemen, especially one in hat & basic corselet (without sash). All current pikemen, officers, and sergeants are in a common ...

Re: Dutch at the Boyne

Hall also says: "While the Dutch began issuing the flintlock relatively early it would appear to have first been used along with the belt of cartridges or “12 apostles” rather than the typical cartridge pouch. The picture of Dutch infantry of 1688 referred to above shows all the men with cartridge p...

Dutch at the Boyne

Two of our favorite authors seem to give contradictory opinions of Dutch equipment at the beginning of the Nine Years War: CS Grant (Pike to Shot, p126) "The infantry still wore bandoliers and sword suspended from a shoulder belt... The coat was full, untailored at the waist and worn open to show a ...

Re: North Star 1672 & Phoenix Miniatures

These images from the NYPL show Dutch musketeers in helmet & cassock, with musket rest. They are dated 1670. If this is correct the equipment seems old fashioned. http://images.nypl.org/index.php?id=91633&t=w http://images.nypl.org/index.php?id=91611&t=w http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/dg...

Just a note that Warlord Games sells a pack of swinefeathers: http://www.warlordgames.com/us-store/pike-shotte/pike-shotte-armoury/swine-feather-musket-rests.html And that Foundry in their TYW range sells two packs of musketeers in "Swedish coat" with rest that can probably be turned into swinefeath...

Re: North Star 1672 & Phoenix Miniatures

I love your ideas. I am a big fan of figures standing casually. They seem to be the easiest to paint. This is a very under rated period, say 1665-1685. The Scanian War book mentions karpus worn by Swedes, but is not specific. The Scanian War should be a good period for wargaming because of the small...
