Re: Scenario Suggestions for gaming an "Assault"

The gate at Walcourt of course. Coldstreamers and Luneburgers fighting off the grade francaise.

Re: OOB for French Forces at Landen/Neerwinden?

A refight in November :!: :shock: 8)

I hope to see a big section in the Gallery with lots of pictures and a AAR. Neerwinden is to the LoA what Waterloo is to the Napoleonic period.

Re: The French Regiments in Ireland Post Ireland

IIRC Zurlauben's had two battalions, believe the other French battalions deploy to Ireland as single battalions.

Did they raise more battalions as the Grand Alliance War continued?

VwQ for the Franco-Spanish War / Dutch War

Hello Clarence, I have taken an interest in the campaigns of Conde and Turenne. Rules wise when they faced each other during the 'Spanish' Fronde 1653ish - 1659 (the third and last Fronde and also the end phase of the Franco-Spanish War) just after the period for VwQ. Do you think the rules would wo...

Re: The French Regiments in Ireland Post Ireland

Hello Arthur,

I take it most of these regiments were disbanded after the WSS?

The French Regiments in Ireland Post Ireland

Gents, Does anybody know or have seen any mention of the French Regiments that served in Ireland after their return to France? Did they serve in Flanders or move to Italy, were they retained after the GA/LOA and took part in the WSS or even into the reign of Louis XV? The only one that I have seen i...

The feel of the thing

Question for all the GNW players out there. The Swedes in the GNW retained the pike and used shock/Ga Pa tactics for their infantry. How does a game feel; Is it as per its counterpart the WSS or more like LoA/9YW/GA period because of the pike? Does the cavalry more or less operate the same way, etc?...
