May Special offer on 4Play scenario packs
|Beneath the Lily Banners|
To coincide with May Bank Holiday, there is a special offer on 4Play packs. The original idea is coming up on two years old and has been an unqualified success. There are thirty-seven titles plus five free titles. Each has three scenarios focused on a particular campaign or period.
They cover all of our rule systems - Beneath the Lily Banners, Donnybrook, Mad for...
Sipahis of the Sublime Porte
Finally I have managed to paint enough of the sipahis to put them in the shop in the condition they are meant to be seen. There are 15 different figures. 6 have split waists, 6 have sockets for arm variants, there are 12 arms with swords, pistols, maces and open hands. There are bow cases, scabbards empty and filled plus long arms to hang on the saddle side.
There are 7 different horses providing...
Too much? Aughrim all in one place
I make no apologies for the time, effort and focus I have directed on the Battle of Aughrim, July 12th 1691. Wargaming resources about the battle have increased steadily over the years as I have worked my way through.
There are eight uniform and regimental history pdfs for the entire Williamite Army available. These give detailed information of the complete order of battle for Ginckel's troops.
Kill Herbert! A Donnybrook 1691 production
I had fun making this. It is a Donnybrook scenario built around the mysterious death of Colonel Charles Herbert at the Battle of Aughrim on July 12th 1691. You can see the video here:
Herbert might be described in modern parlance as 'dangerous to know'. His death may have been at the hands of his own side. A chaotic rout provided the perfect cover for Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.
This game called K...
The Bloody Hollow - full game walkthrough video
I just uploaded the full Bloody Hollow scenario on video here
Hopefully it will hit the spot
Bloody Aughrim pdfs - Released
These turned into rather epic pieces and are the longest and most detailed scenario guides I have yet produced in the 4Play range.
There was so much to cover that it took two full 36 page pdfs for the main action and I am working on the third dealing with some minor elements of the battle now.
There is a lot of detail in these and I have included battlefield pictues detailing the terrain upon which...
Flags for the Austrians!
Clarence Harrison - With the imminent arrival of the new Austrian foot from Warfare Miniatures, I thought it was only right to give the lads some banners to wave martially about. These are based on the designs for 1705 to 1712, but may work for a little after as changes in regulations and changes in the field were often different things.
To get things started, we have five sets...
Red Bog - 12th July 1691
I've been threatening to do an Aughrim video for the YouTube Channel for a while and finally got round to completing it. The Red Bog scenario is a regimental sized BLB game with 1:10 model to man ratio and is played in the 4PlayX format - 4 x 4 table, 8 turns .
It turned out rather well and got me fired up to continue with the Irish output for BLB, 4Play and background reading and reference...
The War in Ireland - A trip through the archives Part 2
|Warfare Miniatures - infantry in Ireland mostly from codes V01-V06|
Eppinger's Dragoons - Part Two
Clarence Harrison - Finished! I really got on a roll with this unit and painted twelve models (and based all three squadrons) over the weekend. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you're excited about a project.
Really pleased with how this unit turned out. I already have three stands worth of foot dragoons and a horse holder base primed and on the painting desk - hoping to have them...

Clarence Harrison - I've been wanting to do this unit ever since I got into the period - somewhere around 2006. I actually purchased the models from Wargames Foundry, but other projects took precedence (we began working on Republic to Empire) and the models sat in a box (they're still there as far as I know).
In 2010, my real love for the period was solidified when Barry and I met at Historicon...
River crossing scenarios - Barry's Half-men
|Some new and unique pieces which I will be selling off.|
I tinker with stuff. It's an illness and I have had for years. I can't just leave things alone. I have to be chopping up figures, converting them and generally mucking about. Having been fixated with river crossings in Ireland (it all started with the Boyne you see) for quite some time, I have accrued a lot of what was once described by a...
