Had a bit of a lash out and found this in a French bookshop, AMMAREAL https://biblio.com.au/search.php?order= ... id=3622573, via Biblio. Ordered 28 March, delivered today. The price (only $23USD) was quite good but, even better, P&P ($16USD for transport by flying machine to Oz) was less than the book!

Agreed. Looks fantastic. I'm quite envious, although the army is no 172 on the painting queue, so would be a 'useful in future' thing.

It's a nice book. Potted histories of the regiments and comments on known differences to the uniforms pre-1762. Nearly all the information is available on Kronoskaf, but there's pleasure in browsing a book that a screen can't supply. Now to look for the next one. Les drapeaux français by Louis de Bouillé, perhaps, or Susane's (if I can work out what's in the different volumes).

Over the last year or so I've been picking up some of the excellent Bloody Miniatures stuff. You know. Just in case we ever do a C17th game...

Then last week I grabbed these on Ebay.

He's had to buy enough to do both sides because no one is ever going to agree to play 17th C with Andy after the Event
