Re: BLB3 in 6mm

I know that I couldn't complete an entire army with units that size. That's one of the reasons I scaled it down to 24 figs per unit. They certainly don't look as amazing as the large units but they suite me (I am still painting one year on !) This gives you an idea what they look like (page 2 of the...

Re: BLB3 in 6mm

Hi there, I've had a look round and, on top of the ideas in my earlier post, would suggest having a go at some of the Table Top Teasers on this site : http://steve-the-wargamer-teasers.blogspot.co.uk/ I haven't looked through them but, from previous experience, they tend to be small scale battles wi...

Re: BLB3 in 6mm

6mm sounds like a great idea. A few thoughts on this : My understanding is that most historical field armies would have been quite large in this period so you are probably looking at either (a) playing part of a bigger battle (eg. the attack on Taviers from the Battle of Ramillies) or (b) creating y...

Re: Scanian War Swedes and Danes?

>>There was 3 articals on the battle of lund in miniature wargames in the 90

By a strange coincidence, I have recently scanned these. MW issues 170 (Jul 97), 171 (Aug 97) & 180 (May 98).

Please PM me if you want a copy. Phil(hyphen)Carrington(at)virginmedia(dot)com

'Marlborough's Danish Troops' - article from Military Modelling

In the middle of a big sort out, I came across an article in the Feb 1988 issue of Military Modelling which might be of interest. The article is titled "Marlborough's Danish Troops" and consists of four pages of text written by Capt Gert Miller & one page of colour illustrations by Bob Marrion. I al...

Re: Wanted: details of Spanish horse regt c.1680

>>>did they wear cuirasses in 1680?

It sounds as though they did. The above source includes the following :

"Until the mid 1680's cuirassiers and lancers wore breast and back plates, or at least the breastplate..."

Re: Wanted: details of Spanish horse regt c.1680

I have a soft copy of "The Spanish Armies in the War of the League of Augsburg" by GianCarlo Boeri, Jose Luis Mirecki & Jose Palau. This provides a picture of the Osuna Cavalry Regiment (which, I think, is the one included in Chema1986's post). The description is as follows : Light grey/white coat, ...

Re: Question on English horse

My understanding is : a. They were the same Regiment (with the Earl of Oxford as their Colonel between 1661 and 1688). The nickname derives from the unique colour of their coats; b. In his excellent book "The Army of James II", Stephen Ede-Borrett confirms that the Trumpeters were granted the privil...
