Re: Battle of Glenshiel - Swiss ?

Thank you - I must admit that I have seen the book advertised and its on the wishlist.... Helion are now putting out so much stuff that I want to buy that the wishlist far outstrips affordability ! Going to have to revisit my strategy of relying on a lottery win... Really nice to see so many books c...

Re: Battle of Glenshiel - Swiss ?

Thank you Dan, Looking at 'For Orange and the States' published by Helion together with the 'Dutch Regiments' website, it appears that the following Swiss Regiments (in Dutch service) were stationed in England in 1715: Schmid de Grüneck van Huningen Sturler de Chambrier My understanding is that they...

Battle of Glenshiel - Swiss ?

Good to see some interest and publicity about the 300th Anniversary of Glenshiel (even from the BBC !). Looking at the background to this campaign, I have seen occasional references to Swiss troops on the Government side: https://her.highland.gov.uk/monument/MHG7457 My understanding was that the onl...

You probably know this already but I understand that the author runs this fantastic blog: http://rusmilhist.blogspot.com/ He has already posted considerable information about this subject on the blog - the amazing translate facilities on the web come to your rescue if, like me, you don't speak Russi...

Re: 15mm Spanish Brigade

They really look the business. Love the flags and nice to know that you can pretty much pick and choose
as so little is known about them (I certainly have !).

Superb as always. The officer and drummer in particular have bags of character.

Re: Piedmont army during League of Augsburg War

An excellent series (& great to see a publisher taking a more in-depth look). You might also be interested in this site which has a huge amount of additional uniform detail : http://www.bandieresabaude.it/index1.html Particularly : http://www.bandieresabaude.it/Bandiere03.html Cheers, Phil

Re: French Garde du Corps bandoleers

I've looked at both the Osprey and David Wilson's book : https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=french+army+austrian+wilson It appears that each of the four Company's wore a bandoleer with silk squares in the Company colour, each of which is surrounded with p...

Re: artillery at Ramillies

The Osprey covering Ramillies estimates that the Franco-Spanish army deployed 70 guns. It provides the following estimate: 12 x 16-24 pdrs 20 x 6 - 12 pdrs 38 x 4 pdrs Of these, 40-44 are assumed to be French. I suppose that the critical aspect for wargaming this battle is that Marlborough's army is...

Re: French army of louis xiv

Looking forward to these releases.

This series deserves to be well supported as it is really bringing to life an era which
is normally less well covered. Some excellent books coming up.
