Re: Did generals have uniforms?

Danni, you know that many Painters weren't even there :wink: but anyway it is a source nevertheless. The other way to think of the General Uniform is that most if not all of them owned/raised Foot or Horse Regiments so they wore their Regiments Uniform as their "Colonel". This Practice goes back to ...

Re: 28mm Tercio de Burgos, the "Old Yellows"

Two Questions have occurred to me: The first one: While starting to paint a unit of Saxon I go to try Burnt Umbra as Primer which I noticed to work quite well with red - maybe with yellow too? Second: The length of your Pikes... are those the 10cm long ones provided by Northstar or did you cut them ...

Re: TYW Cavalry

Just a side Note for the "blackened armor": Only in the early stages of the TYW such armor was common. Mostly for Live-Guard Squadrons. Blackened Armor was too expensive to be used in greater numbers so most units, Foot and Horse, had only polished Iron Body Armor. Besides of Commanders, Officers an...

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. No Idea either. Sorry. Those Saxons I started need also a good quality Rule Set. I search for one that is not too simp...

Re: TYW Cavalry

Re: Flag Size

When You order Flags from Barry he can resize those Flags to what ever the printer/program is able to. Just tell him the, for you, appropriate dimension you have in mind and Barry can check it out. The Size Barry uses are a bit larger than normal as he prefers "heroic" Sizes of Flags. My Flags, whic...

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.

Re: Saxon tactical formations during TYW

...Would there be a mix of cuirassiers and arquebusiers in the same squadron or regiment? My thought would be separate regiments, as this is an administrative unit, formed up in mixed units (size?) for battle. Jeff, Their was no mix of different Cavalry types in the same Horse Regiments, Kürisser, ...

I thought so :wink: Not that I should start to talk about the number of timelines I have my fingers in but at least I have, besides of 500+ ACW Rebels, mainly Saxons :D .

Re: TYW - Late Period 1632 to 1648 Saxon Army

The following Pictures are showing how "Uniform" the Elector dressed his Soldiers and how they would have looked like at the start of the Conflict and the first Mustering of troops of Saxony. It will also suit for the first Year(s) of the 3rd Mustering Period 1631-1649. https://live.staticflickr.com...

Re: TYW - Late Period 1632 to 1648 Saxon Army

The whole point of this historical excerpt was to inform you all about a project which I initiated about 4 Years ago. One which had to stall for an uncertain amount of time after the first orders and payments. In October 2015 I met with Steve Barber, my Friend and Sculptor to discuss the possibiliti...
