Excellent work, there desmondo, and some nice pics with the whole sweep of battle – what 10mm was made for….thanks for the PDF info as well, very useful.

Very nice to see your game. I'm doing Blenheim in 10mm using OG figures. So far I have only done the French infantry and the Danish infantry. I have a smattering of cavalry around also. But I have a long way to go to battle.

Really good suff desmondo. Thanks for sharing. I'm just getting into 10mm and really liking it.

Thanks for your comments.

Got to be honest, the scale seems just right for this period, and the Pendraken Miniatures figures do come up really well.

Hope to post more Army list in coming weeks for the Impetus variant for this period.

One thing I should mention, the buildings are for 6mm. I found the 10mm buildings on the market "too big" and they dominated the table.

Awesome. I think thats the scale I want to do the WSS/SYW in.

FatherOfAllLogic15 May 2010 7:11 a.m. PST

Very good. Carry on.
