Horse holders for our "For King and Parliament" battle of Soggy Bottom at Partizan on Sunday.




If you are coming to Partizan and would like to play, please drop me a line via my blog!


Best, Simon

Love the recalcitrant horse, "nope, I aint going".

Looks great! Thanks for sharing.

Won't have chance to play, but looking forward to seeing them on the table. Really nice looking figures.

Lovely work, they are cracking little scenes 🖒

Looks nice. Sounds like fun.

But Soggy Bottom? That sounds like a battle that would take place in Louisiana….

Wow. Great work.

Lovely stuff, Simon! This Soggy Bottom has its origins not in the US of A, but with a popular British TV baking programme. Sorry for my juvenile sense of humour! That said, it makes for a very challenging scenario, which looks great with Simon's 28mm Goliaths – I hope to set the same scenario up next to his, in 6mm, occupying a mere 3ft by 18inches Games mat. The grid system allows the rules to be used in any figure scale without modification, just changing the size of the grid to suit your table, budget, and preference of figure size.

Thanks all- here are the "other" horses for Sunday's game.

Fantastic this is what it's all about friends: start with the spectacle and then try and engineer a fun game around it.

Hi Simon,

I'm actually going to make it to Partizan this year. I'm looking forward to seeing both you and your game.

Hi James- super! Make sure you drag me to one side I'd love to talk Italian Wars.

OMG, that is beautiful work! Just beautiful!

I'll agree that it's splendid work.
Who is the manufacturer of the figures? I didn't know anyone had gone to the trouble to make horse holders for the ECW.

Almost entirely Bicorne Miniatures- with a few Redoubt horses for added variety.

Nice work Simon!

Beautiful work. Almost makes me think about not-15mm sized figures.

In no way is this a criticism, a general question to those who know about horses: realistically how many horses could one person control in a horseholder sense?
