As posted in the other Thread referring to the Late Period of the TYW the Saxons had only 3 Regiments that have been hald Cuirassiers, half Arkebusiers. The remaining 16 Regiments were Arkebusiers only.
Ah, thanks for the clarification.

Re: Saxon tactical formations during TYW

Interesting that the Saxons didn't use mixed cavalry formations,
The bavarians had most of their cavalry regiments as a mix of cuirassier and arqebusers.

14th Light dragoons.

Perry plastic, the best plastic cavalry I've painted, and I'm very happy with them, particularly the grey horse, which has been a thorn in my existence. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UrNxBm0RroE/XK24xkA342I/AAAAAAAAJOM/l_wZwPBMrqgVBq01ghHgRYrD7SIhB0gqACLcBGAs/s1600/14th%2BLD2.jpg.JPG https://3.bp.blogs...

Re: Saxon Rifled Muskets

That is not entirely true. There have been "rifled" Firearms far earlier than the System Minie describes. Minie presented his patent 1849 while the question about the Saxons carrying a rifled Musket refers to Minden 1759, so 90 Years before that. Yes, as I said, the Baker rifle from 1800 is a rifle...

Re: Saxon Rifled Muskets

They would be rifles.
Rifled muskets use the minie ball.
Before the minie ball, rifled weapons were just rifles.


So The Baker rifle used during the Napoleonic wars was a Rifle.
The Enfield 1853 is a rifled musket.
So any rifle used during the 18th century would be a rifle.

Re: Donnybrook shenanigans

Now that is some serious coolness!
Thought I wouldn't count on them standing firm against a cavalry charge.

Early HYW.

Well I had to compromise my vision. My plan was to do 18 "skirmishers" and 24 MAAs. But my project had ground to a halt, and I felt I had to just finish the units, or I might not continue with the project. So, in the end, my skirmishes ended up with 12 and my MAAs ended up with 18. The skirmishes wo...

Re: Vikings!

Thanks, yes they are indeed footsore.
The bases are from https://bigredbatshop.co.uk/collections/all/bases
I just liked the look of them, and when are you doing to use march columns in a medieval battle?
It's not like dark age formations had huge tactical variations.
