On the mat - some shots of the toys



I quickly threw together some old bits and pieces from the various collections to test out the mat. I am very pleased with the way it has come out. I think it is fine here in our little Lace Wars corner to have a little heavy metal on show (I do still have a fair bit of it!).

GNW play test at Partizan

Playing length ways on an 8 x 6 table offers the Swedes space to get moving and depth to the defending Russians

Toggy and I cobbled together our Partizan game literally at the last minute for a variety of reasons. Needless to say, it looked fine and served and important purpose - that being; to showcase some of mechanisms written for inclusion in our War of Three KingsGNW/Eastern wars supplement...

Warfare's Old and New Swedish Cavalry - All explained!

SC01 New troopers supplied with a random selection from 5 arm variants

Several customers and Blog followers have inquired whether the new Swedish cavalry models are compatible with the very popular trooper we have been selling for the last 30 months.




Best way to start this piece is to show a comparison between them. In the above photo the two troopers on the left are from the original sculpt/model....

With this kind of view you are doing WHAT?

Mrs H knows how to pick 'em - I get to look at this all day whilst thinking abut toy soldiers

Well that's me. Travel does broaden the mind but I have things to do you see. I've got this BLB3 supplement to finish for the Great Northern War and the sun does not really agree with my Caledonian complexion anyway.



With a view like the above to inspire me (not of Landsknechts and Condotierre) but of Turks...

Megorsky: a review of the Russian Army in the GNW - An essential!



This book is an essential asset for anyone interested in the Great Northern War. I believe it will become the benchmark  hobby book for the Petrine Army and although it does not mention figure gaming specifically, it focuses on detail and content continually sought by gamers.

Comparing it with publications of the past, the gulf between it and assumption, conjecture and the rehash of secondary or...
