Walking the battlefields..Glenshiel 1719


The bonus ball of a recent few wonderful days on Skye was the chance to visit Glenshiel battlefield on the inbound leg of the trip. I decided to do a little scrambling and ended up grabbing enough footge to make a wargames focused video of the battle. 





It falls just within my normal scope of interest with a 1719 date. Regardless of the period, it is a fascinating military encounter and unique in...

Das Heer des Blauen Königs - The Bavarian Army


Clarence has produced a fantastic set of Bavarian infantry flags for the period 1680-1714. These were drawn partly from the portfolio of  Das Heer des Blauen Königs Die Soldaten des Kurfürsten Max II. Emanuel von Bayern, 1682-1726 by Anton Hoffman.

Duke Mortis (His High and Terrible Grace, Herzog of Sazir, etc.) demands universal service in the armies of the state and supplements his ranks with foreign mercenaries. 

That's it. While I could certainly...

The Realm of Quindia: 1768

Clarence Harrison - Barry and I were chatting on the phone yesterday and I mentioned a project I was working on, purely to fulfill an ambition of my own. It falls a little outside of the League of Augsburg period, but Barry said I should post about it anyway as it may be of interest to the people who follow our work.

I've decided that 2022 will be the year to finally launch a project that's been...
