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 😉
