Re: Grand Prior Grenadier Caps

Thanks Ray, Both yours and Clarence's unit pictures are what I'm using generally as well as the BLB Rulebook pictures, so the cuffs are white.

Suggestions for sash colours would also be appreciated.
Thanks.

Rapparees

I'd like to have some stands of rapparees for smaller actions or to augment Jacobite forces.
Does anyone have advice as to how well Dixon's levy/rebels sit alongside Warfare? Or would I be better off just using the Warfare militia unit with a few matchlocks added in?

Cheers,

Toby

Re: Nassau Ottweilar Uniform

They do look very nice, Ray.
I think I'll be going with the red though, on the basis that my Dutch Brigade will have the Brandenburg Regt in it and I'd like a contrast.

Re: Nassau Ottweilar Uniform

Hi Mark,

There was a thread a while back:

I think the consensus is off-white/pale grey coats with red lining.

Cheers,

Re: 1690-91 Irish Lists

Thanks Clarence, that's actually what I've largely been using!
I was thinking more specifically of things such as troop grades, numbers per regiment and brigade, which units to make more "militia-y" and so on.

Cheers,

Re: Field Forge

I'd ordered the forge and wagon from Germany and they arrived very quickly. Lovely models and lots of fantastic detail.
Thanks for the link to Crann Tara Miniatures, I'd been looking for a blacksmith to go with the forge and, hey presto!

Should be OK for early 18th C, too, shouldn't it?

Re: Multiplayer Command and Control Questions

Thanks, that's what I was minded towards, though I also like the idea of brigadiers occasionally buggering things up on their own account.
