So I have finished up my first unit of French for my WSS Battle of Almanza project. Here's a quick little write up and some photos.

Nice work, WSS is a great period to game!

Hi. Almanza is a village in the north of Spain. But I think you must refer to Almansa (with S), the place of the main battle of WSS, in 1707.

I wish you a great success in your project. Here you are a link to a museum in Valencia (L'Iber) for your inspiration: museoliber.org If you go to 'Colecciones' you can see my favourite piece of its collection: the battle of Almansa.

Have fun, and all the best.
Enric.

Dschebe,

Thanks for the link. About the spelling I've seen it spelled both ways with the "s" and "z". In fact the book I referenced in the post and the Miniatures Wargame Article I have uses the "z". So I wasn't sure which was correct.
