Nine Years War Spanish

The League of Augsburg Spanish certainly do make a colourful addition to my LoA collection.  And as always the LoA range are absolutely stunning!!

3 regiments of horse

Regiment Cordoba

Regiment Valanzart

Regiment Milan Cuirassier

Spanish Tercios

Tercio Leon, nice yellow ones!

Tercio Seville, pretty purple one! lol

Still one regiment of infantry, one of horse, one of dragoons, mounted and dismounted, artillery and commanders.
These will be finished off on my next rotation.

Seven Years War Russians

The next batch of Russians have been completed, 5 regiments of foot, 2 of horse and 2 Cossack groups.  As always Pendraken figures....just great!

5 infantry regiments, 1 Observation Corps and 1 Grenadiers

Light guns and limbers

Kievskiy Cuirassier

Makedonskiy Hussars



So with over 200 foot and 100 mounted for the Russians already painted, this is the lead mountain I have left!!

This Rotations Painting....

So my rotation away with work is coming to an end and I have had a good painting total.  I focused on 10mm Seven Years War Russian and Nine Years War Spainsh.  A total of 222 foot, 100 mounted and 3 guns and limbers.

Pictures to follow!

Nine Years War Game

I managed to get a game in when I was home last, I keep saying to myself I need to game more often but work and real life just keep getting in the way!

Anyway, at a new wargames club, South Somerset Wargamers, a small but friendly bunch of guys who formed their own group a few years ago and meet in Ilchester, Somerset.

This is not a battle report just a collection of game pictures.  We played FoG Rennaissance, which to be fare is not my favorite set of rules but I had an enjoyable game and the guys in the group now and like the rule set.

So here's the pictures..........

Allies on the right French on the left

French cavalry coming over the hill

French cavalry on the right flank

Allied dragoons screening the cavalry advance

French infantry battle line

Allied center holding the village. Two regiments of Danes hold the village.  The buildings are actually 6mm, they are either Leven or Battlescene buildings.

The two infantry centers shoot it out

The Allied left flank advance

  The village, held by the Danes with the help of Huguenot French regiment on the road.         
 As I said the game was good fun to play and it gave me an opportunity to get my figures on the table but I think I prefer Black Powder/Pike and Shotte as unit shave to work as brigades which in my mind is more realistic.
