Re: Early Petrine Army

According to The Russian Army in the Great Northern War by Megorsky (linked to by Phil above): 'The old-style cavalry included several categories. The feudal levy of the nobility... the provincial feudal horse... Reiters... As far as tactics, weapons or uniforms were concerned, by 1700 there is no d...

Re: Flags of the Dutch St Amant Regiment

Thanks to Phil for his help. I thought I'd post a picture of the finished unit with my conjectural flags. St Amant's personal coat of arms features a snake coiled around a sword on an azure background, and three stars on red. I dispensed with the stars and just used the snake and sword, which were m...

Re: Flags of the Dutch St Amant Regiment

Thanks Phil
Nothing showed up and I've tried to PM you since. I've reviewed my settings and they're all green light for PMs. A bit weird.
Cheers

Flags of the Dutch St Amant Regiment

Hello chaps I'm back after a lengthy absence from the early 18th century with a new project - The Spanish Succession War in Spain. As part of this I've decided to recreate the Dutch Regiment No. 6 St Amant, which I believe were actually a Marine battalion. What I'm missing is any information on the ...

Re: Bourbon Spanish army in Valencia 1706

Thank you Fredrich August. I found that in the weekend, but after a quick read through, found no mention of any of the individual Bourbon Spanish regiments present. The Spanish sources that I've looked at have been about as helpful, stating that the Bourbon units are unidentified. However, I've been...

Re: Bourbon Spanish army in Valencia 1706

Thanks Gordon
It is Nick's book that I used for the Allied units in the area, and it gave me the inspiration to dig into Peterborough's campaigns in more detail.

Bourbon Spanish army in Valencia 1706

Hi everyone I was just wondering if anybody had any information about which Bourbon Spanish units operated around Valencia against Peterborough in 1706? I'm looking at doing some skirmish sized battles with this theatre as the background. I'm also assuming that the Spanish units are likely to be a m...

Yellow Coats

Hi everyone, I'm just looking for some ideas. I see that in the late 1600s a couple of Swiss regiments (Pfyffer, Courten) had yellow coats. Pfyffer changed to blue under Hessy. Charles Grant lists the Courten regiment with red coats. Does anyone know if by the WoSS any French or foreign infantry reg...

Thanks for the report. I would have loved to have been there, even if just to watch and chat but my other half had crazy ideas about a 'family weekend' and such. So we went to the beach to take advantage of the weather... :roll: . A couple of the guys from the Rotorua club made it over and were very...

Thank you to everybody for all of the replies. This forum has so much expertise, it is fantastic to have it gathered in the one place. Barry, I read your article when it was first published in Wargames Illustrated, and couldn't agree with you more. So the green coats will stay, just like Joe's, even...

Hi Iain
Are you therefore saying that my (and Joe's) interpretation of the Luttisch regiment is totally incorrect?
If so, what is Grant referring to when he states that Walloon regiments in Dutch service had green coats? Has he simply confused Dutch and Austrian Walloon regiments?

Cheers

Thank you Footslogger. That is fantastic, and thankyou for the info about the Austrian army - I hadn't realised that. I was sure that I'd seen them in an order of battle for Ramillies. I guess I'd better go and grey up their breeches - my boys as they are can be seen here: http://ndcblog.files.wordp...

A pity this thread died before anyone came up with a definitive answer to the questions plaguing me at this moment! I decided that I would follow Grant's advice and paint a Walloon regiment in Dutch Service in green coats. I gave them red cuffs, because I just couldn't find any info anywhere regardi...

Like Chad I'm painting up 10mm marlburians and looking for a good set of rules. Very keen to purchase your finished product, the photos so far look great. Could you send me a copy of the current version to get ideas on basing, army sizes etc?
