Re: Sheffield Triples show - the battle of Almansa 1707

great looking game . must admit really love johns flags. Hi Turrabear, A little known fact is that all of the Spanish and Portuguese flags (and quite a few of the French and Huguenot ones too) on the table are by my fair hand, produced using the same technique as John. But thanks for the feedback a...

Re: Sheffield Triples show - the battle of Almansa 1707

In some of the pictures you can see the hexagon shaped casualty markers that save us space and paperwork used when recording c...

Well done to Dale on that count. A reminder that 2/3 of the figures used were Ebor Miniatures and we invited Nick W...

Re: Sheffield Triples show - the battle of Almansa 1707

Hi All, Thanks for that feedback. It is much appreciated after this much effort in producing the game. Here are a few shots as promised. Interesting to see the various comments on blogs this evening. In one we were considered to be a mediaeval game - must have been the castle model and the wall to w...

Thanks for that Dan. :roll:

Nassau battalion at Almanza 1707

Hi chaps I'm looking for help with this unit please. It served in Breton's brigade at the battle alongside three British units; Bowles', Breton's and Portmore's. It is recorded as being comprised of Germans but I suspect they may have been Huguenots. I cannot find details of their uniforms or the ba...

I have checked all the usual listings and all I can pick up is the establishment and disbandment dates. Any assistance is much appreciated. :roll: Thanks Tim Whitworth 'Like a stone wal...
