Italian Wars Gendarmes.

A restart of a project I had mothballed several years ago. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ctTlbGm_XEI/XQVDS-YLeFI/AAAAAAAAJUo/zkcR8Z4ka68D82-dnKgLxwRxWJ-ACpOiwCEwYBhgL/s1600/fingendarmes2.JPG https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-R1aTmuWAUiI/XQVDSYDVXEI/AAAAAAAAJUg/6KmCJsKMW2czRWM1BF4-QwdVtlICQLJjQCEwYBhgL/s1600/f...

My best figure yet?

I think so. I don't normally do extreme close-ups, as I generally don't feel my painting holds up to the scrutiny. But I went all out with this guy and spent the better part of a day on just him and a buddy. While not perfect, I think I can say he is the single best miniature I've painted, in any pe...

Re: TYW Cavalry

I hope they'll be an army one day, or at least a decent sized Bavarian corps.

I haven't foggiest what rules to use, none seem to capture the period that well.
What do you recomend.

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.
