Guest post: Gareth Lane's Scots-Dutch Brigade

George Ramsay's Regiment

The Scots-Dutch Brigade had a long and active service but is probably best remembered for its great defeat at the hands of Viscount Dundee's Highland army at Killiecrankie in 1689.


Hugh Mackay of Scourie's Regiment

That it was composed of and largely officered by experienced Scots officers is something occasionally yet deliberately overlooked by those intent on some Scots v...

Williamite Army, 1690

Clarence Harrison - Just eye candy... not sure I've posted these as a set before... I still want to add more units (two Huguenot battalions and three squadrons of Eppinger's Dragoons), but I am well pleased with the collection. 







Somehow, I've never managed a series of photos for my assembled Jacobite army so I'll have to add to my 'to do' list!

Happy New Year from Quindia Studios!

Clarence Harrison - I hope the turn of the calendar finds everyone well! Looking across my various blogs, 2019 was a very poor year for posting, even though I was quite productive. I painted loads of things I didn't bother with photographing.

I wanted to start off the year with some new units for Beneath the Lily Banners!

The first was painted for my collection by THE Barry Hilton and based by me to...

It's that time of year again.. Warfare Christmas give away!




Where did 2019 go? My daughter recently told me a school in Glasgow was in the papers because it had renamed Christmas so as not to offend anyone.... It is now called Sparkle Day...... yes, well...



At least I managed to get With Talon and Clawpublished and it looks like I'll get the Ottoman cavalry under the wire too so they should appear in the shop soon. As my house has to make space for copious...

Release of Danish battalion packs



 Regiment Prinds Georg or Jorgen



Regiment Jyske or Jutland


Our Danish figures have proved quietly popular. Like the Danes themselves, they have gotten on with it without too much fuss. For wargamers with a practical approach the Danish army during the period 1675-1720 is a great choice. It was almost continuously at war. It can fight in theatres from Ireland Hungary. It can take the field for its...

Wargames Illustrated primer on With Talon and Claw




This is another well produced video from WI walking through the new book in some detail. I didn't even know it existed till I found it by accident on YouTube!

With Talon and Claw in depth look from WI




WI is also running a couple of articles soon. One is a battle report from a game I ran for Dan Faulconbridge and Mark Shearwood (Hi Mark!). The second is a scenario for gaming the Battle of...

Swedish regiments... can't leave those Blues out!

To balance things out having shared pictures of the Russian forces massing for Crisis 2019 I thought it only right to get the Boys in Blue in front of the camera too.

Skaraborg Regiment

Tremanning Regiment

Narke Varmland Regiment

Liv Dragoon Regiment

Lots of lovely Russian regimental packs

I set up quite a lot of re-shoots for some of the items in the shop whilst photographing some new products. I am working my way through Russian unit deals so here are some of those which are now available in the Warfare Miniatures shop combined with some existing products revisited:

Russian two-gun battery with field guns and wagon @ £40

The popular RB1 Russian infantry in tricorne firing and...

The dust is settling.. With Talon and Claw reflections and a QRS!





The book reached its first customer on August 16th and now seems to have arrived in most corners of the globe. It was a massive relief to finish this project which had been all consuming for over eighteen months.

The final decision to print is always a bit like betting £50,000 on red. You know there is a risk that something will not be right but having checked and checked, you can't find it. It was...

Guest Post: The work of Gareth Lane Dutch troops 1690s



I have the privilege of receiving photos of the work of many talented gamers add collectors interested in our period.




Recently I was sent some wonderful pictures of units from the collection of Gareth Lane. I was very taken with the style of the units and the painting.




Gareth has used wonderful castings from North Star's 1672 range and has depicted some fine units from the forces of the Dutch...
