Re: The thorny subject of GUARDS

Hi, I am in no way an expert on the classification of troops but I support Barry's few how and who should be counted as guards by morale and who only hold the title guard.

Re: GNW or the Anti-Swedish Alliance

All together 510 Figures o...

Re: ACW Rules playtest groups wanted

Barry, I know its a bit late to ask :roll: I' m not quite a group either but I would be interested in these ACW Rules too. Ol' Granny is a longtime area of interest for me. Played after Johnny Reb-Rules for many Years I would love to see a comeback and this seems to be the best way for it. The words...

Re: Paper Flags (UK)

I've tried to buy GMB flags several times in the past. And time its been a classic case of poor service/response. I don't bother now, just get all my flags from Flagdude. Always a quick response and good quality stuff, regardless of the time difference. Bill Hi Bill, In defence of Grahame I have to...

Re: GNW or the Anti-Swedish Alliance

Heneborn,

Thanks for your advise, I look into it.

Are the 500 Figures realy so much?
10-15 Batallions Infantry and about 30 - 40 Squadrons.

GNW or the Anti-Swedish Alliance

Hi, With the arrivel of the BLB2 I am now convinced that I start a new area. I'm talking about the Alliance that was formed against the Swedish King Charles XII.
