The League of Augsburg

A little more?...

Didn't make it into the book but, a nice shot anyway - Saxons defend part of a village.


The book project is now in full swing and I am getting updated layout drafts sent to me every few days which give a very encouraging progress check simply because the suggested additions and changes are visible when it comes back!


From a Kliszow re fight about five years ago. Will the remnant of the Livgardet...

Anyway, everyone seemed to work out pretty...

GNW Russian Horse Grenadier squadron



These chaps have been languishing on my painting table for some time. Finished but un-photographed. They are the first completed squadron of a large Horse Grenadier Regiment for a Petrine Russian Army.

The Horse Grenadiers were grenadier companies drawn from dragoon regiments and consolidated into discrete regiments. New Grenadier companies were recruited as back fill in the existing dragoon...

Left field - Christmas surprise: Warfare Cossacks!



Did you just double take? Yup, me too! Although cossacks have been on our agenda in planning discussions for some time we had never actually committed to inserting them in the production schedule until I received a mail from Clib to say - take a look at these!



The first two sets of Cossacks sculpted in very realistic poses and with great character. The fact that they are finished means that we can...

New Ottoman Command packs




We will be releasing these probably before Christmas. They are quite outstanding sculpts.




Both are designed for generic use with Janissary or non Janissary infantry. Several can be painted as senior officers. The dress styles cover a wide span of time and will look in keeping with Tufeckci, Sekban and Irregulars.



Some will fit well with Janissaries.



This is a sneak preview. They are currently being...

WSS/GNW Prussian, Danish & Norwegian flags




Clarence has been very busy completing a commission for a customer which we are now in a position to put on general release.




The compliment our existing Prussian and Danish flags for the WSS/GNW period. The Prussian designs are from 1710 onward. Some flags are conjectural but most have drawn on existing sources for detail.




We now have five sheets of Prussian infantry flags, two of cuirassiers and...

Oh, I should tell you about Crisis..

Saxon skirmishers engage the Janissaries

The key drama temporarily overshadowed a very successful and enjoyable CRISIS 2018. The show was great on several fronts. Trade was the best for about three years, the Ottomans were very well received and sold to expectation, there were some nice games, I bought something big and we were busy chatting to friends and visitors all day.

Danes advance to capture...

What a F*****g day!

We had such a great show.. what could go wrong?

I do not usually resort to expletives in my blog contributions but today is an exception. Having completed a very successful and enjoyable CRISIS 2018 in Antwerp, Toggy and I had planned an early start on Sunday - breakfast at 0830, on the road for 0900 - Ramillies by 1015, Neerwinden by 1400.
Having checked out at 0900 I reached the car and fumbled in...
