Re: New Ebor GNW

Well I'm looking at suitable figures to use from Front Rank and Warfare. I like converting SOME figures but when you need units (not to say armies) it's better to sculpt/convert and then mould and cast. Now doing that with existing ranges isn't lawful. :mrgreen:

Re: Snapphane

Yes, I've been told that Donnybrook is THE rules for "la petite guerre". Lots of possible scenarios from raids and ambuscades to storming redoubts. Looking forward to see them.

Re: WARFARE PRIVATE COMMISSIONS - WHAT INTERESTS YOU?

I would be very interested in Franco-Dutch and Skanian wars figures. Now that I've started Kingscarbine Miniatures I'm tempted to bang some dollies and sculpt a couple of test figures to see if I can match North Star 1672 range.

1680-90 Figures for 1670-80

Hi,

What figures from Warfare or Front Rank can be used with North Star for the Franco-Dutch and Scanian wars? I suppose the mounted officers will do and some pikemen but I'm not sure if the cavalry is OK.
