I thought these pics might be of interest to those considering buying Grenz infantry.  The unit is a mixture from Old Glory and Lancashire Games.  They mix well enough to my eye.

Very nice!  Funnily enough, I've got the same mix in my collection (painted by 'Osmoses' of this parish).

Thanks Mark.  I just realised I'm painting Prussian Hussars no.2.  Very tricky indeed.

Another milestone reached in my SYW Project.  The second Prussian infantry brigade is done.  There will be a third too.  The figures are mainly Blue Moon with a smattering of Eureka and Lancashire.  The flags are by Not by Appointment- I use them whenever I can.

If it is of interest here is the link.

King of the Battlefield Eighteenth Century Wargames Rules have been out there for nigh on 20 years!
They give good games as one on ones or as huge multiplayer all day bashes.
Simple to learn and great fun.

I would love to post some pics, but how?

Cheers Jambo, I've just finished the Blau Regiment and another unit of hussars.  I'm well into it now.

Here are a couple of games of King of the Battlefield.

One is taken at home using some of the vast number of units we have amassed over the years. Not a historic match up but more a "yours versus mine" all day engagement.

The other is a normal Bank Holiday Monday affair at the club. We encourage newbies as well as old sweats to bring and play.

Have fun.
