Thirty Years War cavalry from 1898 Miniatures – a review
From The Via Regia site comes Thirty Years War cavalry from 1898 Miniatures which reviews the first – and hopefully not the last – Thirty Years War cavalry releases from 1898 Miniatures. Explanations are given as to some of the finer details of the figures, eg. pistol wielding cavalrymen have horses with one empty pistol holster. Very cool! Also presented is a unit of them painted as a unit of Gustav Adolph’s Swedish Cavalry.
Maps on the move
Epic History TV have a YouTube channel which has many historic videos of a warfare nature. The one that came to the attention of von Peter himself was on the Napoleon 1813: Battle of Nations. This particular video gives a 33:15 background and overview of the battle. What particularly caught the eye were the animated maps of the battle which showed at a high level movements of the troops during the battle. Very instructive.
Price rise incoming – Perry Miniatures
And because it would be harder to leave it any later and still be prior to the event … not the greatest news but contained in an email received from Perry Miniatures …
Unfortunately due to many growing costs we are having to increase our prices.
We’ve been holding off for as long as possible, but production costs for both metal and plastics are still rising. So, on the 12th March we will add 50p on all metal codes and £2 on plastic boxed sets.
That means that there’s only a few hours to place any price rise defeating orders. Jump to it you Perry Miniatures fans.
Until we meet again …
