Re: basing napoleonic french imperial guard

Basing is never a Problem with RtE-Rules. My Saxons are, on Paper, 4 Companies of 210men each. For astethic reasons and and to show some Campaign Consumption I made them on 6 Bases of 6 figures each. You may still use them if they are at 800+ strength, just take notes and there you go. Saxon Leib-Gr...

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: 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.

First Batch of Miniatures have arrived. Glued them on single Bases, for now, 60+ Miniatures with a lot of Head variants and wire Pikes. Rich in detail, Heads not glued on yet.

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, ...
