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.

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.

Just one slightly negative comment - so much effort has gone into the figures but it is let down a little by the terrain. Your figures deserve better !

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,
