The League of Augsburg

Marlborough's Danes




Yes, I know. How could Warfare have produced such an important component of the armies of the period without me getting my act together and at least letting everyone see what they look like in battalions?
An unforgivable omission but as always I will trot out my 'one man team' excuse. Well, that and Ottomans, Wagonburgs, wee ships, Cossacks and the like.




Anyway at last I have some units of Danes to...

Various WiP shots

two bases from a three base Cossack infantry unit

I have too many projects going at the same time. Purely a function of bringing out new figures for Warfare Miniatures. Painting samples for the website means that lots of things get started but very often wait for a long time to get finished.


Command and three models to be added to this Russian unit in kartuz

Every base on this post is part of a unit...

New Danish grenadiers and painted firing line



These fine chaps have been available for almost a year but I never got round to putting them in the shop! My fault completely. I had it in my mind to paint them first but that deadline slipped away again and again.

Anyway, we have sold a few dozen packs on request over the time period but I apologize for keeping them from you for so long.

The Danes retained grenadier companies of significant size...

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...

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...

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...

Warfare and WSS by stealth

A very large Malplaquet game I organized and ran about 10 years ago - spots the Minifigs!


The War of the Spanish Succession (WSS) may appear to have been some sort of enormous elephant in the room for Warfare Miniatures but not so. Rather than being a conflict which I have no interest in, the Nine Years War is a conflict when has voraciously consumed my interest leaving little time for anything...

Story of a show game 5 - Forces : The Ottomans

Janissaries in full dress

Putting the Ottoman force together for Donnybrook required a little thought. Should it fall under the Army Faction or under the Tribal Faction? Categorization under the latter may seem to be bordering on racist bearing in mind the Ottomans were for centuries one of the most formidable cultures and imperial powers in the known world yet, their army falls into an area...

Story of a show game 2 - The scenario

The Panzer Division will watch from the sidelines whilst the infantry slug it out

The scenario for CRISIS 2018 is called Brahms & Liszt. It is set in 1713 on the south-eastern frontier or, north-western if you are Turkish! This is twenty years after our previous show effort of 2018 at TACTICA which also involved Imperial forces racing to over run the French in the German Grand National 1693.

Prussia...

Story of a show-game 1 - the trade off

LoA North American Chapter - Clarence did ALL the work for this one at Historicon 2016

Being a Team of two, you have to make decisions which are inevitably a compromise. I have captained some productive groups since starting on the Event Trail around 1992. Sometimes we were two, occasionally three, many times and for several years, I flew solo.


Don't be 'leg-ist' please!


I don't envy larger groups...
