Re: Late XVII c. Spanish tercios colour plates

Wow that's great

The 1700 walloon tercio the musketeer in the creamy, beige/brown coat, is that what the French were using in the 1680-90s?. As I've seen some paintings were the uniform is definitely not grey like you see in the 1700s

British WWII uniform

Hi what colour would best suit WWII British uniforms, I use vallejo paints, I see one called English uniform but it looks far to dark and as I use agrathax shade it would probably be even darker and just look a brown mess!

I'm using 20mm scale figures AB stunning miniatures

Re: artillery at Ramillies

Doesn't seem much when looking at it, I take it artillery was still not a big factor in a battle and was still down to vollies and cold steel?

Re: WSS Bavarians

Grenadiers code SS35-SS-40 bearskins under sub section WSS Infantry & Dutch

The British have their own section I think they look good pass for Bavarians

Re: WSS Bavarians

I'd go with the British as they have the gaitors over their stockings and the coat and sleeve have hoops/lace on buttons and use bearskin grenadiers for grenadiers think there under the generic WSS figures

Re: Dixon minis

That is true we are not all the same size, its probably just wargames miniature enthusiasts who must have every man the same hight and build same sized shoes and waists it's a good job we are not real military Commanders we would have no troops! 😂

Re: Dixon minis

The command figures are nice but they are much smaller in size as in noticeably smaller but they match perfect for the Grand Alliance range, Foundry are a larger 28mm scale? I've never bought them before I'll give them a go 👍

Dixon minis

Bought a few dixon minis see how they look and in a sub section there is a small range of The Army of Louis XIV the figures are very nice especially like the firing figures and have proper chunky cuffs! Only part letting them down is no Command eg standard barer and officers drummer and the grand al...

Re: The English Expedition to Portugal, 1662-1668

I see I know alot did use just the St George Cross with coloured quarters but don't know what they were like before Augsberg period

ECW was more symbols, cyphurs worded scrolls and piles wavy but that's about as far as my knowledge goes for ECW flags.

Glad you found you're answers

Re: The English Expedition to Portugal, 1662-1668

The English flags were usually just a plain ALL one colour field for the colonels and the battalion or company would be the St George Cross with different coloured corners depending on the regiment. Alot of the coloured flags would match the regiment uniform cuff colour eg green flag would be kirks ...

But guards says each "Company" had a flag just wondered if they were ALL identical or different abit like the English company fl...
