Another post featuring 1:1 formations of both Foot and Horse circa 1688. Link here to lots more photos and the article itself;


Here are some photos as a taster from the piece:

Wow – amazing work and I love the basing/photos!

This is great to see.

I often think that the hobby tends to ignore the reality, and the implications of the fact, that most armies fought in very linear formations during the black powder era.

Those are so well done I had to double-check whether I was looking at miniatures or re-enactors.

Currently considering how I can extend this experiment out to represent a full battalion 1:1.

Great looking figures and when deployed in mass like this it truly is impressive. Some years back one of the gaming magazines had a 7YW battalion (25mm) deployed at 1:1 on the cover. It took up the whole length of the table.
I've tried over the years to come up with some 1:1 gaming, usually with little luck.

I do 1:1 AWI in 2mm. It really works well, using BG. It lacks the pop of the lovely figures by jocknroll, but I can do Freeman's Farm on a 4x8 table, and IMHO it accurately models the tactical deployment and the LOOK of the actual battle.
But Jock's figures look SO cool. Color me torn.
