Archive added: League of Augsburg, Grand Alliance, Great Northern War... plus - more Napoleonics

Continuing the theme of adding old pictures to the archives pages on the right, I have added a page for League of Augsburg/ Grand Alliance/ GNW.
During the 1990s, this was the main thrust of my wargaming focus, and much of that time involved attending shows and putting on games under the banner of "The League of Augsburg" which frequently featured in the wargames press at the time. as some readers and blog visitors may remember.

Few photos remain, and many of the units have moved on to pursue their tabletop careers with other wargamers, in true mercenary style!
However, some pictures do remain, so I hope you will enjoy that little skip through wargaming history (or at least indulge my own nostalgia).

Here are a couple of my favourite units from the period as a taster...

Above: Balfour's Regt... from Killiecrankie.
Below: Jonkopping Regt - Swedish infantry from The Great Northern War.


 

I have also found a few more Napoleonic pictures and added them to that archive too.



Thanks to those who commented last time, and all who have been in touch expressing interest.

More to come soon...
