Hmmm, I guess that Clarence only held is breath until his face turned blue with only his right lung while breathing normally with his left.

Cool costume, Clarence.

Without actually having any knowledge of it in period, I would be pretty sure that they would leave their horses in some kind of cover, such as: behind a slight mound or hill in a bit of a depression behind some other form of cover The basic idea would be that they wouldn't be easy targets . . . but...

Paul, Not considering the suggestion that you send me all of your figures, you might try watching some movies set in various historical periods . . . they can often get the juices flowing. Blogging can also often help . . . you can document projects as they grow . . . and the comments and encouragem...

Registration Post to Early Linear

Barry,

I certainly would have posted it for you . . . but as I hope you know, your post to the "Early Linear Warfare Society (a Yahoo! group) got through this time.

IF you are one of those people who is concerned with the difference between 3-rank and 4-rank units, the use of 60mm and 45mm bases (respectively) makes sense. Take a 600-man battalion. If it is three ranks deep, the frontage is 200 men; if four ranks deep, 150 men. This means that if you base your ...

I'd think about using them as Saxons if any of your gamers are "uniform nazis" . . . since I believe that during this period the Danes wore double-breasted coats. If your mates don't care about such details (and personally I wouldn't mind) the Danes have got some great looks to them . . . and the Sa...

Barry,

There may well be a Membership list for you . . . but we normal members no longer have any option to view it.

Now that is fine if you want it that way . . . but it does make it difficult to find others who play in the period and may live close to us.

I read it when it was first published (early 90s as I recall) and I was quite impressed with it . . . which means that I really should re-read it now that I'm actually interested in the period covered.

My friend, Paul Robinson of the Grimsby Club, posted a review of Partizan on his blog titled "Partizan -- the Good, the Bad & the Downright Ugly". To read his review, go to: http://grimsbywargaming.blogspot.com/ But as a preview of it, he leads off with a couple of photos of the Boyne game. I'm sure...
