Prussian army of Frederick the Great, though the Russian army of the SYW is making up ground fast.

mghFond02 Feb 2017 10:36 p.m. PST

GNW Swedes and WSS French, too close to make up my mind but I'd gladly play either.

AussieAndy Supporting Member of TMP02 Feb 2017 10:44 p.m. PST

Reichsarmee followed by Grand Alliance.

Personal logo Lluis of Minairons Sponsoring Member of TMP03 Feb 2017 12:39 a.m. PST

GNW Swedes and Danes

MHoxie Inactive Member03 Feb 2017 3:01 a.m. PST

GNW Swedes it is.

bruntonboy03 Feb 2017 3:10 a.m. PST

1745 Jacobites, Louis IV's or maybe the British army of the 7 years war. Lots to choose.

Swampking03 Feb 2017 3:33 a.m. PST

1788 Swedes, followed by 1792 Lithuanians, then Jacobites and 1788 Norwegians

British in south in AWI

Extrabio1947 Supporting Member of TMP03 Feb 2017 6:30 a.m. PST

French and GNW Russians. Got that, Jocknroll? GNW Russians!!! (Hint Hint) 😁

Khusrau03 Feb 2017 6:35 a.m. PST

Austrians & Jacobites. Which I suspect says more about me than the armies.

Scorpio Inactive Member03 Feb 2017 6:58 a.m. PST


Damnit, that's the best suggestion. Congrats saltflats1929.

coopman Supporting Member of TMP03 Feb 2017 7:07 a.m. PST

American Continental army (painted).

JoJo the Idiot Circus Boy03 Feb 2017 7:25 a.m. PST

Saxons and Swedes from the GNW. I also like the British army of the AWI.

Buckeye AKA Darryl03 Feb 2017 7:44 a.m. PST

Grand Fenwick

YEAH! All three of them, and their goat!

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP03 Feb 2017 10:50 a.m. PST

Hm hard one. Uniform wise i love British SYW.
But how many real super human armies are there really in history? Well Swedish GNW is one of them. While i dislike some of their of the battlefield stuff. On the battlefield they are hard to beat.

Rod MacArthur03 Feb 2017 10:54 a.m. PST

The only two which I have, 1745 Jacobite, followed by same period British.

I have plans for same period Hessians, and quite like the look of them. When I get around to WAS French I will undoubtedly include those as well, particularly the Irish Brigade.


Frederick Supporting Member of TMP03 Feb 2017 11:40 a.m. PST


Then French – used to be Prussian but all blue got tiring

Personal logo herkybird Supporting Member of TMP03 Feb 2017 12:10 p.m. PST

Swedish GNW for me too!

Personal logo Der Alte Fritz Sponsoring Member of TMP03 Feb 2017 4:56 p.m. PST

Prussian of course.

Jacobites for the '45 are my second choice.

Haven't played the period since the late 1970's but France. John Miller
