Re: Bonnie blue flag ACW rules

Hello, Kev, Dave & Steve. I have just found this thread while googling "Bonnie Blue Flag", having just ordered a copy from Caliver. I am looking for a fun simple set of Napoleonic rules (no disrespect to RtE that I also have, but I'm afraid I seek simpler fare, Barry, with the possibility of smaller...

Re: BLB3 The War of Three Kings now available to preorder

Gidday, Barry! (and Gwen!) My book arrived in rural Eumundi (in the land of Aus!) yesterday in good condition. I have thumbed through, and very pleased I am that a - weekend is forecast so I can "study" it in depth! Looks great. First pages...really like the idea of different dice like in Donnybrook...

Re: BLB3 - Cards?

I'd prefer to buy the event cards as a playing deck rather than a download...time poor, I'm afraid. Cheers, Rohan.

Re: Hello

Hello & welcome, Meic.
Good to see you on this forum, too.
Also looking forward to BLB3 as a chance to dust off the WSS figures that migrated to the back of the cupboard when mid 18th Imaginations and SAGA pushed them there.
Cheers, Rohan.

Re: 'Marlborough's Danish Troops' - article from Military Modelling

Hi, Phil. The Danes were my first troops in this period before the "gaming butterfly" struck. :D I should like a copy of this article too, please, so will send email just now. Cheers, Rohan.

Re: Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year to all from "The Land of Oz" or "The Great Downunder"! I have dragged myself away from the tennis (Roger Federer continues to impress at all levels) and am back to Fighting Talk after a time "drifting in different waters" game wise, and am excited by the prospects for 2018, especially...

Re: French artillery NYW

Hello, Sven. I think at the period you ask about, the gun carriage & limber timber sections were a brick red colour, the metal fittings were black, and the barrels natural metal colour.
Cheers, Rohan.

Re: Scots Militia Pentland/Covenanter Risings

Hi, Pikeman. As militia, it is very unlikely they had uniforms at all. So I would picture them in everyday dress, with the Hodden Grey cloth predominating. Their breeches would be a mix of everyday cloth, especially greys and browns. & for headwear, I would picture a mix of bonnets, caps and hats, w...

Re: A problem about a 18th Century Wagon

Hi, Belg. I have glued the cart shafts under the bars on the side of the horse, my reasoning being that this represents some harness fitting hooking to the shafts of the wagon. I then have glued thick thread from the bar on the second horse, back to the ones on the first to represent tandem harnessi...

Re: Source for WSS French Uniforms

Season's Greetings, Doug!

I have come late to this thread - a wonderful set of units, well painted. I like your material flags - the cavalry standards are getting better with each unit. Inspiring stuff - please keep it up.

Cheers, Rohan.

Re: Dalton commission register dates

Hello, Graf Bretlach! I think it may be that in the old style, or was it in that era, the year was deemed to commence in March, so 1701-2 for a date in Feb.

Cheers, Rohan.

Powdered Hair or not in the mid-18th century?

Hello, All! I am painting some mid 18th century regiments of Minden figures at present, and it just struck me that I do not know if I'm doing things correctly. Looking at various pictures & texts I cannot really discover if the foot & mounted OR's of the WAS/SYW era had their hair natural or powdere...

Re: 28mm Miniatures for Wars between 1735 - 1756

Hello, Günter. I wish you well with the Eureka figures. I have a unit of the Chevau Leger von Brühl from this range, as well as the Hussars, and also foot & mounted Arquebusiers de Grassin (sort of a must have unit for Old School Gamers :D ). These latter are in the WAS listing - you will have seen ...
