Re: Holidays, military history and inspiration....and the French Vendee Revolts
I visited two places recently, a castle and the island fortress of Gramvousa in Crete, scene of the never ending veneto turkish wars (among others). That tripped me into rethinking of starting yet another project, any war from the age of fortresses and sieges. I'll probably use 30yw figs, I don't know yet.
About the Vendean rebellion: I'm currently reading about the events, there are two 'rounds' of revolt, the second is around 1799, so the 1805 napoleonic French with bicorns will be more than adequate, for anyone in need for early (i.e. 1793) republican troops. There are 3 connecting 'fronts', La Vendee (most famous), east Britanny and Lower (i.e. west) Normandy. There was also a royalist rebellion in 1815, on Napoleon's return, so again late Nap troops may be used. Quite practical in fact.
