The League of Augsburg

Campaign hard facts


For all you 'Stato' types out there (and in my experience that is most gamers), I have included the casualties from the main battles in the 1692 campaign season here. It will be followed by the Roll of Honour/Dishonour in a subsequent post.

As many of these units have gained experience and have featured in the 1693 campaign the information does have some gaming relevance.

Some of the players have I...

Unashamed Williamite Wars LoA nostalgia trip..

Glorying in the spectacle of the game...



I have hundreds, perhaps thousands of gaming images from our many years of gaming the Williamite Wars. Sometimes it is nice just to look and not necessarily to read. Not in chronological order (of the war nor of when they were played), here is a trip through the images if you need some inspiration...

The Battle for Britain 1692... concluding the 1692 story

Here is last year's final chapter, leading into our 1693 adventures....

Infamy! The English Life Guards treacherously turn on the Gardes te Voet



The guile of the Lord Lucan in persuading the venal Kirke combined with the grit of the brave Irish soldiers to serve up a delicious victory in the cause of the true King and the true religion– This is the tale King James’s counsellors would have us swallow...

The Battle for Britain 1692: The story so far, almost completed..

Leading up to the start of the 1693 campaigning season with the climax of 1692..


The Jacobite Army on the left delivered a stunning victory at Badon Hill


The ire of the populace at large has turned like a rabid dog upon prominent men who once had the world at their feet. General Tollemache, erstwhile darling of the army and hero of the battlefield is now become a figure of derision and the corporeal...

Complicit in the Jacobite defeat? St Ruhe's French may have fought hard enough


Dundee’s own losses amounted to no greater than thirteen hundreds of the total four and one half thousands lost for King James. So, can it truly be believed that the legions of King Louis the Magnificent did not shoulder more than adequate share of the...

The Battle for Britain 1692: The story so far..

Was de Ruvigny fully committed at Ripon


For those blog followers interested in our 1692 alternative history of the struggle between Jacobites and Williamites for control of Britain, here is a summary of where we left off BEFORE we share our latest experiences of April 2017/ April 1693.

Written in a suspect narrative style, it covers the main events although, not necessarily as all players may recall...

Quindia Studios LoA Collection

Clarence Harrison - I have posts on the way about my trek across the pond (organizing my notes and photos), but I'm working around the house today reorganizing my figure cabinet. I'd run out of space to display my LoA collection and several units have been cluttering my painting desk. Here is my entire collection so far...


Fourteen battalions of foot, fourteen squadrons of horse and dragoons...

Lots to blog about.. did we REALLY do that?

New Dutch West India Company forces attack English Creoles on Jamaica


Well, Clarence is on his flight west, Bob is back studying 18 wheelers and I am back at LoA HQ trying to make sense of the last seven days. We've manage to cram a lot into a week. Five wargames, 10 players, three theatres, an 860 miles road trip, eight battlefields and lots of walking.


Captured from whom? French Militia? We think...

Clare's Dragoons

Clarence Harrison - A few weeks ago I finally got my hands on some of the new Warfare Mounted Dragoons and finished my first squadron, Clare's Dragoons...


I decided to mount these models on individual 25x50mm bases so I can use them for Donnybrook as well as Beneath the Lily Banners. That actually makes them 10mm narrower than my standard cavalry units. Since they are on smaller horses, that will...

The Lifeguard of King James II, Part Two

Clarence Harrison - Here's the second squadron! I actually managed to finish them last week, but I had to go out of town for work and didn't get the chance to take photos.


This is one of my favorite regiments in the collection so far and forms the nucleus of my Jacobite horse. My original goal was two squadrons of Lifeguard, three squadrons of Tyrconnel's, two squadrons of Parker's, and one...

A weekend with the League of Augsburg…..

Mark's first killing ground near Taunton.. lucky he was defending!

I have followed the reports of previous weekends with interest and I must admit a little envy, so when a thread appeared by Barry on Fighting Talk on the Monday following Salute 2016 putting out feelers for a autumn weekend...
