Re: MacDonalds Flag

While working on Jacobite Scots flags, I couldn't help notice that one of the MacDonalds was missing... Ok, I am really, really sorry... really... And well you might be...particularly when wags begin adding them to their armies. :lol: From on-board OED: wag2 n. informal – ORIGIN C16 (denoting a you...

Re: "Danish Troops in the Williamite Army in Ireland, 1689-9

Rebel, Rohan et al: it's good, in fact excellent !! I can second Rebel's comments - this book is excellent. I purchased mine from Book Depository in UK (best prices with postage to Australia, usually). Thanks for the positive comments. It is some rare excitement when a really useful book on an esote...

Re: WARFARE PRIVATE COMMISSIONS - WHAT INTERESTS YOU?

Hi guys, In general GNW is something I'd be enthusiastic about having a go at. 'Nuf said... As I said earlier, sign me up, and I will support the effort as best I can. GNW, the time from 1699 to 1704. I do support the Saxon "venture" and would like also to see 1683 catered for as practicality allow...

Re: WARFARE PRIVATE COMMISSIONS - WHAT INTERESTS YOU?

Gunter, You have a GNW range ally in me (of, perhaps a Swedish enemy!). I think GNW would make a great range. Gunter & Barry, et al: Same here regarding Saxons & GNW. Did Barry publish the theoretical investment mechanism and projections here somewhere? He briefly described them to me in a PM (whic...

FAQ re "Postage" at the Foundry site

Hello all: This all I have found thus far. Again, mid-life brain function may be mitigating my success. :shock: Perhaps one is intended to gain knowledge of the postage policy only though using the "Cart"? Can anyone provide enlightenment through reading of the following? :roll: Postage Many compani...

Re: The "New Foundry's" shipping to the USA?

Hello Greg: Michael, I took advantage of the 60% off their book selection. So I placed an order with a book, (free shipping) and two vignetts. Well, their web site screwed up and come to find out, the book was not available and got a refund. Thanks for the comments. On the "Book Fiasco" front I orde...

The "New Foundry's" shipping to the USA?

Hello: Not looking to provide a new rant thread, really. :lol: I have been attempting, at their website, to simply learn what the rates will be without actually playing with the "Cart". Does anyone know as yet, do Foundry even know as yet? :wink: I should hope so since the "Cart" and selection seem ...
