Re: The Shop

Gentlemen, is there any indication of when the shop will be selling League of Augsburg polo shirts? Whilst I may masquerade as a Frenchie, I'd rather display my allegiance to the true cause!

Re: Huguenot Officers

IIRC there was also a regiment of Dragoons that was payed for by both Maritime powers for service in Savoy?

During the WSS the Dutch continued having Huguenot regiments in their pay but they served in Spain.

Re: English Train of Artillery uniforms in Flanders 1692-3

Hello Hastati, Chandler has a chapter on the English Artillery Train in his 'Blenheim preparation: the English army on the march to the Danube'. IIRC he talks about both the English Train and the Dutch Train for the Grand Alliance in Flanders. Uniforms were just starting to make an appearance, the s...

Re: Blood's Artillery @ Blenheim 1704

As for all disappearing once the action started, they can't have all scarpered otherwise how was Colonel Blood able to move his artillery as he did during the final stages at Blenheim.
Why Sgts with half-pikes of course :lol: :wink:

Re: Blood's Artillery @ Blenheim 1704

Hi Ray, As you may know there was no Corps of artillery drivers during Marlborough's Campaigns. The civilian contractors that served the artillery were known to disappear when action was expected. Suggest you recruit a couple of Sgts with half-pikes from the line to keep an eye on those doubtful con...

Re: Representing the Maison Du Roi Cavalry.

Yep, that's part of what I'm mulling over. Formations that are very small require the same amount of sculpting as those of large formations, but could be on the edge of being cost effective to do.
Interesting discussion, would love to see them produced.

Re: A Gaming Discussion - rules like Maurice

Basing etc would be unaffected but I foresee even more period nuance possible. The whole thing is not a pipe dream but is pretty imminent. Clearly not for everyone but those interested in small actions.. Ireland, Jacobite Rebellions, Sedgemoor, Tangier, such as the delaying action at Walcourt befor...
