Re: Dutch "Garde te Voet" late 17th C painted

Very nice indeed, I am very fond of Dixon miniatures myself so I am wondering which ranges or the several at or about this period he does. i find his League of Augsburg range fit very well in the same unit with warfare ones for size and build and add a bit more variety of pose though the way warfare...

Re: Marlborough: soldier and diplomat

Barry, just goes to show why being a bit of a troll on this forum is quite so good for cheering me up when I am in a black mood.

I know how you feel I was called Reasonable once the shame, the dishonour.

Re: Scanian War 1675-1679 "Snapphane style"

what I like most is the conversions of the Wargames factory figures which I did not think all that good, & a bit lacking in conversion potential especially the infantry.

Re: Great Northern War 'Active' firing line?

I rather like the idea and it would suit the Swedish tactic which was to use a proper volley or two by a whole formation at short range before closing in to mellee whilst their enemy was still shaken by impact of the volley.

Having followed the Scoundrel's blog for some time I think its Muskets and Tomahawks of which he is a fan but I am sure Donnybrook would be ideal as would my version of sharp practice for the 1680's - 1700 if I ever get that finished

Re: Pike 'rot' - fact or fiction?

I have no evidence for it but pike rot sounds like an excuse made up by troops who had taken a couple of feet of their pikes to use as fire wood. I recall spear shafts & the like where traditionally ash which when polarded grows into thickets of long straight poles of various diameters which had a m...
