War of the Spanish Succession.

 

It was a period of transition in warfare:  professional armies – especially the cavalry, the demise of pike and rise of the bayonet,  ‘proper’ artillery. All requiring an adjustment in generalship from the practices of the previous century mandating a closer co-operation between the three arms. Then there was Vauban and his military engineering.

 

…and the armies are easier to paint 😉
