Ottoman Banners - Table top bling bling!

Part of one of my own painted units

Well, this is somewhat of a bling post but I just enjoyed myself so much doing these flags that I thought I would share. I decided that any Ottoman unit I got the chance to  paint and/or base was going to get one of my old style linen flags.

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 4 - Forces : The Imperialists

This was a hoot! 1693 and riding roughshod over the French but it's 20 years on.. can the Turk be vanquished too?

I very much enjoyed the German Grand National 1693 game which we ran at Tactica and elsewhere in the first half of 2018. The competition between four German ally states against a common enemy was colourful and fun and even spawned an X rated version which I think was called the W hores?...

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.

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...

Ottomans on their way


Janissaries on campaign - two thirds of a unit minus Command



They arrived at 1600 and are on their way to all the pre order customers tomorrow!

Which one wasn't speed painted? 2 x 45 minutes, 1 x 90 minutes

Here is a taste of what is coming your way in the post. Codes OT001 - OT004 nearly sold out in the first batch so we are barely hanging on with those till we get reinforcements.

Come on, more? Really? Warfare Minis Guest Gallery 5



I've managed to get to a fifth in the series of Warfare painted miniatures from the brushes of excellent painters whilst maintaining the quality!




Here we have some super, stylish Saxons from the very prolific brush of Roger Castle. Roger can be found evangelising about the GNW on several fora at the moment. His work output is high and he has done a wonderful job on his Warfare minis.




Friend and...

Ottomans - keeping them coming!


Managed to complete one full code - Campaign dress Janissaries loading/priming

OK - the big job - prepping 90 models for the production moulds has been done this week, Scraping and filing castings which are not going to be painted is a very tedious job so I punctuated that by quickly painting a few more of the new castings.

One more figure to add to the Campaign dress firing code


These are speed...

White-out at Aspern-Essling - reflections on Claymore

When I faltered, members of the gaming public were there to remind me of what I'd written in the rules - nice!

We do other stuff... a lot of people know that (in my best Maurice Micklewhite parody).

Toggy's nice pontoon bridge is underneath the French transport!

Warfare Miniatures' top selling code WLOA01 - Musketeers in firing line


As  the hot summer continues, I am comforted by finally being in the UK for two consecutive weeks having worked as hard as I can remember in the last few years. Cloning technology would have been very welcome in the Hilton house in 2018.


This unit of Irish Foot Guards of James II features WLOA01 


This has been a very successful...

Exploring the possibilities - New Military civilians



The possibilities with these figures are enormous. With fifteen marching /advancing musketeers in three sets of five, each with four arm variants we offer 60 variants on the musketeers.




With the open handed models depending on the weapons used - scythes, short pikes, pole-arms, long pikes etc the options are there for a further 60 variants.



These are the first of a series of 'real' people in 'real'...
