Re: Papal and Italian States 1660 to 1721

Some really interesting links listed here. I've managed to track down one or two (Scribd is useful here). Reconstructing these armies is a fascinating task (made even more so when you can't speak Italian !). Translation sites are helpful but they sometimes come up with some colourful suggestions... ...

Re: Papal and Italian States 1660 to 1721

I've spent quite a bit of time looking into the armies of the Italian States (as part of a project looking at regimental lineage). Anyway, I've found a huge amount of information available about one of the more important States (Savoy/Piedmont) but relatively little about the remainder. A few source...

Re: Grand Alliance Game

One quick question - I wonder the red coated chaps in picture 17 are (carrying the red flag with large sun device) ?

This really is a stunning collection that has clearly taken years to complete.

Re: Battles of the Franco-Dutch war

I've had a look on the excellent 'AD 1672' site and come across a page which might give you some pointers :

Useful Sources

I've recently come across some a couple of sources that might be of interest. Firstly, the following link downloads "FORGING A COALITION ARMY: WILLIAM III, THE GRAND ALLIANCE, AND THE CONFEDERATE ARMY IN THE SPANISH NETHERLANDS, 1688-1697", a Dissertation by John Stapleton, Ohio State University (20...

Re: Danish Uniforms

If you are interested, I also have a copy of the earlier booklet (Danish Uniforms, Colours & Standards, 1675-79), which also had input from Dan Schorr.

Re: Incendiary article?

I assume this is about the 'Camaret' article which mentions the strong possibility that Marlborough committed treason by giving advance notice of an English descent on the French coast. If not, my apologies ! I'd never heard of this affair before so thought the article was really interesting, partic...

Re: Prussian Army WSS

This is turning into a beautifully painted army. Well done. Very nice to see someone paint this army up - my understanding is that they fought like tigers and made their reputation, particularly in the Italian theatre.

Looking forward to seeing more,

WMMS Alumwell 2017 - Siege of Athlone

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the chap who put on the Siege of Athlone game on Sunday at the Alumwell show. A very impressive game that must have taken an age to create. Included some beautifully painted figures. I was particularly pleased to spot some of the Danish Battalions as I am curren...

Re: I am wetting my pants.. Texel!

Simply stunning. The incredible detail and wonderful colours.

But, its only when you reach the last but one photo that you realise the scale of this project.
