Not to mention a comprehensive list of each of the brigadiers involved and their mistresses. :twisted:

Gentlemen,

I shall re-phrase my question: how do we calculate the average figures per squadron? The example works out the average to be FIVE, whereas I get SIX. I'm afraid I may not have been too clear in the original question.

Thanks for your patience,

Jim

Dave,

I don't think so, the regiment was elite and had a -1 modifier already. I think it may be - heaven forbid - a misprint.

Jim,

I didn't mean to come across as a pedantic eejit there; it was only in case someone else tried to look up the site.

Apologies, :oops:

Gentlemen, Alright, I am currently messing about on my dining room table with some LEGO bricks and going through the motions of an "All or Nothing" charge. In the example given on page 32, our friends the Mestre de Camp General have taken one casualty from the Dutch infantry. It then states that th...

Barry and Clarence, If you are considering a BtLB 2nd Edition , then I would certainly buy a copy. If you really wished to go to town on it, I would suggest hardback and filling it out with examples of play using photographed units and, maybe for those new to the period, a basic painting guide. OK,...

Barry,

That's exactly what I meant by a "double flag" and I have just had a look at the article - great stuff. This site is a veritable mine of information and goodwill from existing members.

Thanks,

Barry, Many thanks for the prompt reply. I've been looking at flags and had a sneaky suspicion that they were larger than 40mm x 40mm. Tell me, do the flag manufacturers do that size or would you have to basically make them on your own? If I were making a "double" flag, would that be 50mm x 103mm o...

FLAGS

Gentlemen,

I have been looking over many images of painted figures from your good selves and would like to know what size are the "oversized" flags you use?

My guess is 40mm x 40mm but I could be wrong.

Regards.

Barry and Paul, I totally agree. I have the Napoleonic volumes and now the Lace Wars but, unless you are unfortunate enough to cross the path of the dreaded Wargames's Fashion Police, they suffice for my 28mm figures. They are good enough to give a flavour for the periods but, are definitely not ap...
