The League of Augsburg

Taking the offensive.. well said Pete Brown

The offending piece

I am not even allowed to use the word snowflake in the house without a censorious eyebrow being raised by my daughter. I know I am not alone in my complete bemusement regarding what people will take offence about next. At work, what my team are now OK to say or not say in terms of illustrating business life lessons is like walking through a minefield (oops, probably not allowed...

Jumping the queue!

Cossack infantry advancing


Invigorated by the excellent progress being made on the GNW Supplement for BLB, I treated myself to some painting which was not actually on the very backlogged schedule.

In addition to the painting I did some more reading on Cossacks and found that over the years I had fallen into swallowing a few cliches about them. Perhaps it was too much exposure to the Battleground hex...

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...

Some of our lovely Danes D01 & D03 fighting in Hungary for the Emperor

The Christmas offer seemed to be to your liking! Thank you very much for all of the orders we received between December 10 and January 12 which meant I was not and Elf on the Shelf but more of a Gnome working from Home (ouch).


Some Prussians from P01, P02, P03,, P04 and P05 - Vorwarts!

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...
