Re: Gonzalo de Cordoba's Spanish Arquebusiers

Beautiful as always.

I'll be interested to see what you think of the TFL Italian Wars rules as and when they emerge.

Re: An Early Morning Norman Scenic Photoshoot

Excellent painting and terrain work - love the vibrant colours and shield finish.

It may seem strange, amongst so much colour and movement, but one thing that stands out for me is the 'wood effect' on the palisade ! :D sigh I need to get out more...

Re: Venetian cavalry (dragoons)

Glad you've found it. I've just looked it up on Google Books - a very bright uniform that should paint up well (although I can't imagine it staying that colour for very long !). Look forward to seeing the finished figures. 'History & Uniforms' looks like a very interesting magazine. Helpful that the...

Re: Venetian cavalry (dragoons)

Hi Stuart. I can't help with the uniforms unfortunately, but I did come across this online source which provides quite a bit of information about the Regiment of Dragoons raised by Marquis Nicolò Grimaldi de Courbon and their service in the Morea: https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/tel-01287498/docume...

Re: Saxon brigade

>> Tomorrow I hope to do some of my two Saxon cavalry brigades.

I'm looking forward to seeing these. I do like the red and gold colour combination you have used on the infantry. Some really effective basing (the snow is particularly good :D).

Re: Huguenot Red & Blue Dragoons

Thanks Wienand, I'd not heard of them before so I am sure you are right - either short-lived formations or a result of mis-identification. Of course, it doesn't help that the some Regiments were sometimes referred to by various different names further obscuring an already murky picture). Thanks agai...

Huguenot Red & Blue Dragoons

In his book 'The Huguenot Soldiers of William of Orange', Matthew Glozier mentions the above two Dragoon Regiments (which, I assume, are named for their coat colours).

I don't suppose anyone has any further information about these two Regiments ?
