The League of Augsburg

A most remarkable army.. Kuruc 1703-1711

An Osprey style compilation of Kuruc forces on the march mixing phases of its existence

The by ways of the late 17th century and early 18th provide magnificently juicy brain food for wargamers. Although I had in passing, read about the Kuruc Rebellion in Hungary during the first decade of the 18th century I had gone no further than a quick skim of what it was all about.

During the compilation of...

Salute 2019 Pre-order discount



No, I can't believe it either. SALUTE 2019 is in about four weeks. Somewhere in my head I could hear a voice saying, you'd better start planning for SALUTE which is in a couple of months.

Anyway, enough of this already. Here is a special offer for any products pre-ordered for SALUTE.

Stuff gets in the way sometimes....


Danish troops take position to defend a town against the Swedes.

Where have I been? Good question. The last fifteen days see me two thirds through a three-weeker from Los Angeles via Chicago and New York to find myself in the more sedate and old world ambience of Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge (not MA,USA rather...shire, England) by Sunday. Almost all work and no play but I managed to squeeze a...

As it should be. Swedish GNW Cavalry


Charge! The Swedish Liv Dragoon Regiment thunders down upon its quaking enemies

It's a legitimate question. Why has it taken you so long to produce a unit of your own cavalry, based in your own 'chevron' style?
Time and conflicting priorities is the answer. I don't have enough of the former and an abundance of the latter.


Squadron 1 full charge in chevron


I did paint about eighteen riders but only...

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...

Probably the best army in the world?

Danish infantry brigade takes position 1693-1700

Forgive the paraphrasing of Carlsberg's strap-line of the last decades but....

Danish infantry attack the French


If you know any Danes you'll also know they are quite distinct from other Scandinavians. I always find the Danish approach engaging. Direct, curious, straight and no nonsense. They usually like to have some fun too. You know where you are in...

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...

Deep in it.... some of the collateral

Russian Force #1 details below in the text

Where have I been then? Up to my armpits in getting the GNW/Eastern Wars supplement for Beneath the Lily Banners 3rd edition moved forward.


Russian field gun in a log redoubt

The book is being laid out right now and the early views are very encouraging. Despite a pretty extensive archive of shots, I knew I didn't have enough of the right kind. I have thus...

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...

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...
