The League of Augsburg

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...

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.

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...

Oh, I should tell you about Crisis..

Saxon skirmishers engage the Janissaries

The key drama temporarily overshadowed a very successful and enjoyable CRISIS 2018. The show was great on several fronts. Trade was the best for about three years, the Ottomans were very well received and sold to expectation, there were some nice games, I bought something big and we were busy chatting to friends and visitors all day.

40mm Cossacks versus Ottomans



This game caught my eye at Claymore.




On inquiry, it was explained as a mid-17th century Ottoman incursion into the Ukraine.


The figures are from Irregular Miniatures. I was taken by the striking nature of the set up and although very Old School in form, the subject matter and unusual visuals created an appealing show spectacle.



Banners are interesting too!



I thought Blog visitors would also be taken...

Swedish Regiment Vasterbotten - the basing really sets off the unit superbly

Wargaming takes some unusual turns. When we visited Tuscany on holiday I arranged to meet an Italian gamer, collector and painter with whom I had corresponded for a couple of years. When we met in his beautiful home town of Lucca we really hit it off.

Since then we have met...

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!).

So, the shots...

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...
