Something for North of the Border wargamers.11th October at the Culloden visitor centre. Details here

Bagot's Hussars aka the Scotch Hussars

Everybody is very interested in things Scottish at the moment so I thought I would post the illustration from Like Hungry Wolves (Reid/Embleton), the Pennycuick drawing and a photo from a Lace Wars event.  Be good to see if Crann Tara have any planned for their range.

Sheriffmuir 1715

'Sheriffmuir 1715 is the military history of a doomed Jacobite rising in Scotland, which enjoyed far more public support and arguably far more chance of success than Bonnie Prince Charlie's attempt 30 years later. Unlike the '45, the uprising which culminated in the brutal battle of Sheriffmuir was very much a Scottish affair, fought without either French troops or assistance, and unashamedly aimed at reversing the hated Union with England and re-asserting Scotland's independence. However, in this lively new study by acclaimed military historian Stuart Reid, a completely fresh look is taken at the campaign, while the battle is reassessed in the light of a thorough knowledge of the ground and the armies which fought there.'
