The League of Augsburg

One to one wargaming: expanding the idea

Three 48 man companies of musketeers from the garrison of Derry. A company of Mountjoy's Regt at the centre.

I was very pleased that the first post on this subject was popular and that visitors were stimulated to consider the implications of frontages, deployment, fire methodologies and movement around the battlefield and its table top imitation.

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...

The Guns of August 2018, Sunday

Whew! Third game went totally different from the previous two. Though the Jacobites did manage to get all of their plunder across the ford (in eleven turns.. don't tell Dannie), they were slaughtered to a man save several units of horse who retreated in good order from the field.

Mike 'Fat Bastard' MacNeill captained the Williamite assault while the dynamic duo father-son team of Rob and Justin...

Crossing the Shannon - July 15, 1690

Clarence Harrison - In the period between the Battle of the Boyne (July 1st, 1690) and The Battle of Aughrim (July 12th, 1691) a variety of smaller engagements took place in central and the south west Ireland.

This scenario is a fictitious encounter placed against the backdrop of small raids, sieges and low level actions which characterized the year following the Battle of the Boyne. Scenario...

The Guns of August 2018


The static grass I use comes in sheets, so once the glue is good and dry, I can feather the edges and blend it in to make look a little more natural. That's it... I'll post another pic of the finished table with all of the rest of terrain in place this weekend...

Warfare Miniatures' top selling code WLOA01 - Musketeers in firing line

As  the hot summer continues, I am comforted by finally being in the UK for two consecutive weeks having worked as hard as I can remember in the last few years. Cloning technology would have been very welcome in the Hilton house in 2018.

This unit of Irish Foot Guards of James II features WLOA01 

This has been a very successful...

Crossing the Shannon - The Guns of August 2018

Clarence Harrison - My work schedule has been crazy recently and I realized I was never going to be able to finish the Limerick project I had planned for The Guns of August (maybe Historicon 2019). Rather than give up on the idea of attending, I set out to find a different scenario to run.

While sorting through scenarios, I stumbled on the map for 'Crossing the Shannon'. This game appeared in the...

I'll hopefully get to that soon although travel is currently the rate limiting step. In the meantime Mr...

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...
