Now at the printer, the latest issues of Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy takes a look at the French and Indian War, with a mix of campaign games, skirmishes, and big battles.
Other articles include the first part of an 1815 Napoleonic campaign along the Rhine, WWII weather wars in Greenland, and a look at two recent rulesets for ancient skirmishing - Men of Bronze and Mortal Gods.
The Walloon Guards, a fearsome elite bodyguard and fighting regiment created in 1702 by the Spanish king Philip V among his Southern Dutch subjects, on the model of Louis XIV's Gardes Françaises.
Such is our latest addition to the War of Spanish Succession military flags ranges at 1/100, 1/72 and 1/56 scales.
As usual, they've been released as DIN A7 sized PDF sheets, for users to download and print at will. Regardless of scale, each sheet comprises two flag designs pre-formatted for the intended scale: King's and Regiment's colours.
It's been an unusually long time since my last news update, but there was a strong (and hard!!) reason behind --Minairons miniatures has moved headquarters to a new address.
So as to celebrate the move is over (finally!), we've restarted activity by releasing a new set of War of Spanish Succession flags --devoted to an Austro-Catalan infantry regiment officially named "Saint Narcissus", but also known by locals as "German infantry".
The set has been released simultaneously in 1/100, 1/72 and 1/56 versions altogether, following our purpose to develop all three ranges simultaneously.
These, and some other designs that had been previously held as under pre-order, are now available as DIN A7 sized PDF files, that can be downloaded for €2.00 and auto-printed at will.
In the next months we'll keep developing these new, multi-scale PDF ranges focusing on the peninsular armies of WSS (both sides Spanish and Portuguese mainly).
Those of you fond of WSS and 18th c. gaming know there is a number of brands already offering quite comprehensive ranges of flags in virtually all the scales this period is gamed in. Would it be any room for another one, then?
So I think, indeed. The reason why is that very few of the existing collections (if any) do include the armies of the WSS peninsular theatre itself: either the flags own to Philip V and Charles VI, or even the Portuguese ones.
Helping to fill such huge gap is my intended goal. If this can be of your interest, please follow the link below.
