Re: Louis XIV's 'Model Towns'...

Definitely - might have to use 1mm figures and be suspended over the table in some form of mobile hammock but it would be worth it !

Re: The Glorious revolution on BBC Four

Very interesting episode with quite a significant part looking at the impact of these events in later years. Its always going to be relatively superficial given the short time available but I think she tried to maintain a balanced view. I always appreciate Lucy's efforts to bring history alive in a ...

Danish Regiments : Colours per Battalion

I would be grateful if someone could clarify the system of issuing Colours for Danish Regiments in the WSS. I am about to embark on a project to paint a lot of Danish Battalions in 10mm and would like to get my head round this if possible ! I have looked at all the sources I have (the excellent GNW ...

Re: First GNW game

The figures look simply stunning - a lot of work clearly went into this. I particularly like the effect of the 'animated' flags.

Re: Scandanavia 1655-1680?

I have a some information on the Danish army of 1675-79 if that might be helpful (the booklet "Danish Uniforms, Colours & Standards 1675-1679" by Olaf Hasselager and Torstein Snorrason).

Email me at phil(hyphen)carrington(at)virginmedia(dot)com if you are interested.

Cheers,

Re: Bavarian Infantry Organisation circa 1700 onwards

I agree - very frustrating. I've seen epic lists of great source material on TMP which can only be accessed if you live in the States....

Re: Bavarian Infantry Organisation circa 1700 onwards

Thank you for the Staudinger link - unfortunately, it just confirms that there is 'no ebook available'. A nice try though !
