Story of a show game 5 - Forces : The Ottomans

Janissaries in full dress

Putting the Ottoman force together for Donnybrook required a little thought. Should it fall under the Army Faction or under the Tribal Faction? Categorization under the latter may seem to be bordering on racist bearing in mind the Ottomans were for centuries one of the most formidable cultures and imperial powers in the known world yet, their army falls into an area...

Story of a show game 4 - Forces : The Imperialists

This was a hoot! 1693 and riding roughshod over the French but it's 20 years on.. can the Turk be vanquished too?

I very much enjoyed the German Grand National 1693 game which we ran at Tactica and elsewhere in the first half of 2018. The competition between four German ally states against a common enemy was colourful and fun and even spawned an X rated version which I think was called the W hores?...

Story of a show game 2 - The scenario

The Panzer Division will watch from the sidelines whilst the infantry slug it out

The scenario for CRISIS 2018 is called Brahms & Liszt. It is set in 1713 on the south-eastern frontier or, north-western if you are Turkish! This is twenty years after our previous show effort of 2018 at TACTICA which also involved Imperial forces racing to over run the French in the German Grand National 1693.

Story of a show-game 1 - the trade off

LoA North American Chapter - Clarence did ALL the work for this one at Historicon 2016

Being a Team of two, you have to make decisions which are inevitably a compromise. I have captained some productive groups since starting on the Event Trail around 1992. Sometimes we were two, occasionally three, many times and for several years, I flew solo.


Don't be 'leg-ist' please!


I don't envy larger groups...

Militia - all painted

various pikemen - Sedgemoor? Derry? Boston?


It took a while but I finally got the lot painted and Toggy did some too! This post is just to illustrate the potential of these beautiful models.

Armed wth scythes, polearms and short pikes - Raparees? Huguenots? Town mob?


I really enjoyed painting them - so easy.

The musketmen - each has 4 arm variants so multiply the horde by four and there is still no...

Exploring the possibilities - New Military civilians



The possibilities with these figures are enormous. With fifteen marching /advancing musketeers in three sets of five, each with four arm variants we offer 60 variants on the musketeers.




With the open handed models depending on the weapons used - scythes, short pikes, pole-arms, long pikes etc the options are there for a further 60 variants.



These are the first of a series of 'real' people in 'real'...

Kurpfalz Feldherren do the '45 at Tactica

Some Summer pictures of a winter time game from Germany.


Awa' in the Heilands - Speed Bonnie Boat and all that stuff..


Those very talented chaps - Jurgen, Sven, Stefan and Mirko aka the Kurpfalz Feldherren have done it again with this wonderful '45 Rebellion Donnybrook game at Tactica.
This looks suitably grim and Scots
Their table was beautiful and contained four forces - French, Highlanders,...

You Tube video review of WTK

Wargames Illustrated have posted a nice (and well executed) video review of the rules on You Tube



Warfare, Quindia and Wordtwister: Here is the news 2018

Our most commercially successful SALUTE for four years

2018 has been a busy year for us so far. The big job was getting 'Billy Bunter's Postal Order' to finally arrive, aka The War of Three Kings ( Beneath the Lily Banners 3rd Edition). The book has been very well received and importantly for our continuing input to the hobby, commercially successful already.

Unlike Bunter's PO.. WTK did finally...

Warfare Miniatures at SALUTE 2018

Hopefully you'll find us - we'll be standing like tiny Dennis Watermans under this monster

We are looking forward to SALUTE 2018 where Warfare Miniautes will have its own stand TB21.

You will we hope, be able to find Toggy and I as we have a BLOODY BIG BANNER with the cover of The War of Three Kings on it!

For the first 10 purchases of the book we are giving away a free...

I've been waiting to tell you this for a long time...

Military coats and informal equipment

Back where it all began. A passionate interest in the wars between 1685 and 1721. No idea that I would become the owner of a figure company. Inheriting someone else's idea of how things should be done and trying to work with that whilst always wanting to move things in a slightly different direction. Picking up on ideas started by someone else which needed...

Limbers for Field Guns

Clarence Harrison - Right, here's a proper limber this time - none of that dodgy strapping a gun to the back of the poor horse...


Obviously a field gun would be pulled by more than two horses, but in the same spirit that calls 18 men a battalion, I wanted to keep the footprint of the limber to a minimum for my usual 4x6' table. As before, the gun is not attached and was lifted from one of my field...
