Re: Garde Te Voet flags by Warfare Miniatures

Hi, I wouldn't say so because the English imagery would not have been relevant - star and garter/St Georges's cross etc. I have a book about the siege of Naarden in 1673 which shows the uniform to be roughly the same (facings yellow instead of orange coat dark blue grey but it does not detail the st...

Re: BLB3 - Cards?

yup purely optional. We like them because the create so much chaos. I have noticed a trend with players... When the cards are running their way, they love them. When the cards get them in trouble comments along the lines of.. "Actually I prefer the game without the cards' come to the surface. Intere...

Re: Information required - Bourke's Fusileers

To accompany the previously mentioned Williamite Army at Aughrim I am well advanced with the Jacobite Army too. It draws on over 50 sources and I believe has in one place lots of info which is not possible to find in a single source elsewhere. This includes as much into as I could gather on service ...

Re: BLB3 - Cards?

Over the years we have developed several decks of event cards which we use in our weekender games. We are currently debating whether to issue these as 'playing card' decks or downloads. More news soon. They always go down very well in the games and create lots of fun.

Re: Wargamers guide to the Williamite Army at Aughrim

The idea was to take all of the info from all of the disparate sources and bring it together in a form that didn't make the reader feel like he or she had just eaten a full packet of Jacob's Cream Crackers - if that makes sense.

Re: Ingoldsbys/sabibes 23rd foot war of spanish succession

I don't think you are going to get a definitive answer to this Mark however, logic suggests - 1. The grenadiers in an Engish regiment would already have been wearing caps therefore, it would have been no reward to give them more caps! 2. The title Fuzileers would mean - no pikemen and the likelihood...

Re: Ingoldsbys/sabibes 23rd foot war of spanish succession

I have been researching Herbert's/Morgan's/Purcell's/Ingoldsby's/Sabine's for the forthcoming (and imminent Williamite Regiments at Aughrim pdf series). What I uncovered says they were awarded the title of Fuzileers in 1702 and allowed to wear grenadier caps as reward for their part in the storming ...
