AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN ARMY

Hi chaps, A quick note to confirm that I have just completed a large project to map the evolution of the Austro-Hungarian army. This comprises a large Excel spreadsheet with a column for each year from 1546 to 1914 and which includes the origin and changes effecting every Regiment raised during this...

Re: A couple of 28mm units for 30 Years War

Simply superb - well done. This has to be some of the finest painting I have ever seen.

Re: Klissow (1702) Refight

Kara.

I have just bought the latest Miniature Wargames and, as you say, there is a full article on the battle. Wonderful stuff - lovely terrain, well painted troops - really shows off what can be achieved in 6mm.

Re: New to the Period

Hi, I will be starting a new LOA army in 10mm in a few months and have taken inspiration from this thread : http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,7622.0.html If you are new to the period, perhaps look at a couple of Orders of Battle for inspiration. Even if you don't follow them exactly, i...

10mm English Civil War

Hi chaps, Just thought I would show you a few pics of a 10mm ECW army I am currently working on. The first shot shows a Royalist artillery position. To emulate the wonderful pics in the BLB rulebooks, I've decided to add planking under the guns. This was simply thin card, cut to irregular sizes. As ...

Hi Barry, I had read the article a few hours before watching the film and sent the post when I recognised an example of the instinct to mock you talk about. Taking the mick out of myself really.

Shouting at the Telly (Man in the Iron Mask)

Hi folks, You may have seen the 1998 film of the 'Man in the Iron Mask'. Not bad adventure story with some famous faces and included what (to me) seemed like credible French uniforms with ribbons etc. (Ducks and waits for rotten fruit). Anyway, the outcome of the plot leaves the real Louis XIV weari...
