Nice idea to use a gun.
Adds a lot to that group.March 23, 2019 at 11:46 pm #157240
Thanks, IO. I think he had to be jumping over something, so why not charge the gun ;-).April 4, 2019 at 10:41 pm #159348
Last two blog posts before Salute!
First one describes the order of battle.
Second is just the boxes packed for the Journey 🙂
Gratuitous cuirassier picture.

It looks to be an outstanding game you guys are putting on; I look forward to the pictures on Monday. 🙂April 8, 2019 at 12:36 pm #159571
Still catching my breath after returning home from Salute 2019. It was only my second ever Salute (so what do I know?) but I thought it was the best yet 😉
The Friends of General Haig all had a very entertaining day demo’ing Lutzen 1632.
The game came together pretty much as planned, even if Bruce was up flocking bases until 4.30am on Saturday morning – well done Bruce!
We met lots of people, so thanks if you are one of the many who came and said hello. It was a universally positive experience engaging with the wider wargames community, and a real shot in the arm to see so many like minded people all together under one roof, and to look over the amazing range of shiny toys on offer. We truly live in the wargaming golden age IMHO.
Some of my further thoughts on the day at Salute are on the Via Regia blog.
I am writing a report on the actual game, and will also post our troop rosters, in later posts.

A very big well done 😀
Wasn’t there but am sure it was great.
I ordered that book on Wallenstein, which once it arrives would definitely tempt me to pick up the imperialists again. And I read somewhere that warlord games will release some new tyw personalities, besides torstensson.April 8, 2019 at 3:23 pm #159592
Fantastic! Thank you for the pictures and congratulations on a successful outing.April 8, 2019 at 6:24 pm #159600
Thanks Corso and Rough Rider 🙂
And many thanks to everyone who has been so encouraging all of the way through – much appreciated.
The Wallenstein’s Army book looks like it is the book we have all been waiting for, very good so far.
I have also started the Osprey Polish Armies books. More Poles from Warlord? Steve Morgan hinted on Saturday this wasn’t beyond the realms of possibilities but to not hold one’s breath!
More Personalities would be great – even ones aimed at the ECW can probably fit in to the TYW, perhaps with some adjustment. I think more Imperial cuirassiers will be the first thing on the work bench.April 8, 2019 at 6:32 pm #159601
Great blog info on Salute.
I’m soooooooo GREEN. Long time since my last visit.
Polish army plans ? A lot of options.April 8, 2019 at 10:34 pm #159607
Thank you, IO 🙂
Very early days on the Poles as I need to research the 1620s conflicts with Gustav Adolf. Not that much in English so interested in any recommendations from anyone on the forum.
IO, a question for you, if I may. I described Lützen as being in “Lower Saxony” which I think may not be the right terminology. How should I best describe the location of Lützen? Southern Saxony?April 9, 2019 at 9:47 am #159616
Lützen is indeed in the lower part of Saxony. The Tieflandsbucht. Flat. It’s just 10 miles SW from Leipzig.
In TYW it was part of Kursachsen. Sachsen-Zeitz, Sachsen-Merseburg and Sachsen-Weißenfels had been seperate under Dukes.
Today it’s not part of Bundesland Sachsen but the seperate Sachsen-Anhalt.
