Re: Ottoman Project

My copy of The Armies of the Ottoman Empire 1645-1718 by Bruno Mugnai arrived today and it looks well worth waiting for.

Re: 17th Century Naval Games

Seems you have got your hands full on a modelling scale :D :wink: 1/450th Scale you say? Pretty large. You know those two Companies and their 1/450th Ranges I presume https://minairons.eu/en/76-1-600-catalogue - 1/450th is part of that and https://www.peterpig.co.uk/pirateships.html Yes, it’s mainl...

not sure why you can't comment on the blog. DOB can't either. I will ask the VA Oracle Could be a case with Browser Pop up Blocker. Might be no harm if you check this in your Browser.

Re: The Deluge a new Polish and Cossack Project

Re: 17th Century Naval Games

I saw the first blog post, tried to leave a a comment but it doesn't let me (probably quite a good policy!*) Looked like a really good way to include the influence of characters.
