Re: A Painting Mutiny?

Hi Darrell, Fantastic painting even for "Wargames Standard", but I would agree with Adam in that when seeing a regiment with all it's colour, shield deco and flag's can take the eye away from any plain uniform. I'd also say "it's the standard of casting of the figure itself", this is the reason I ch...

Re: Dismounted Dragoon and Mounted Cavalry Firing Questions

Hi Brett, Yes you are quite correct two squadron's of dragoon's i.e. 12 figures would dismount into two bases of 5 figures each as 2 dragoon's would be horse holder's. As for the pistol firing French Horse. It is said that the French Horse during the WSS held onto the old tactic of riding upto a ene...

Hi Guy's, For those interested in the WSS period, here are the beginnings of the Hanoverian Brigade @ Blenheim in 1704. New painter Mr.Dave Livesey has sent me a photo of the first test figure of the regiment du Luc. The regiment is listed as having white coats with green facing's at Blenheim, but u...

Re: Unit Frontage in BTLB

Hi Mark, On your question of depth all depend's on the Horse or Dragoon regimental strength. In BLB it's normally between 1 to 4 squadrons in strength, historically some regiments were even stronger up to 9 squadrons. If you read some battle accounts most cavalry operated in Brigades, these being of...

Re: Destructive and Formidable: British Infantry Firepower

Hi Guy's, I have to agree with Maciek on this, first of all only 14 British battalions were at the Battle of Blenheim out of a total of 75 battalions. Out of the 14, 10 battalions were in two brigades attached to Lord Cutts command facing Blenheim village. The other four battalions were positioned i...

Re: English army 1690s 1700s

Lee, you are correct Queen Anne reigned during the War of Spanish Succession and so the royal cypher would be "AR". Here's a better view from this photo taken by Barry Hilton during one of his weekend's in Fife. These weren't painted by me, but by "Me Paints Good" a U.S. forum member and then sold o...

Hi Gunter, I saw the photo of your good self at Derby and it's great to put a face to your name now. Your armies are massive, fantastic and a credit to you. Good luck with your dice when wargaming with them, unfortunately I don't think there were any Saxon's at Waterloo in 1815, but I suppose you co...
