The Last Arguement Of Kings
The Last Arguement Of Kings At the beginning of the 18th century, warfare entered a new era. The widespread use of the flintlock musket had transformed the way armies trained and fought. This period was a golden age for the crowned heads of Europe. They commanded professional troops, gloriously outfitted in splendid uniforms, and fought each other over land, wealth and the succession to their thrones. Some even led their armies on the field of battle. Yet by the end of the century, the real power of kings was gone or greatly eroded – parliaments would decide the foreign policy of nations, democracy had taken hold in the New World and the divine right of kings was everywhere being questioned.
These were the last wars fought to protect the succession rights of royalty. These wars were the Last Argument of Kings.
This supplement for the Black Powder game overviews the main conflicts and armies of this period, and includes army lists and special rules to enable you to refight these wars using the Black Powder rules, as well as scenarios for the most dramatic battles of the time. Featured conflicts include:
•The War of the Spanish Succession – the Battle of Blenheim (1704)
•The Great Northern War – the Battle of Holowczyn (1708)
•The Austro-Turkish Wars – the Battle of Petrovardin (1716)
•The War of the Austrian Succession – the Battle of Fontenoy (1745)
•The Wars of the English Succession – the 1745 Rebellion
•The Seven Years’ War – the Battle of Hundorf (1762)

Glory Hallelujah! ACW Black Powder Supplement
Glory Hallelujah! ACW Black Powder Supplement ‘Glory Hallelujah!’ – the American Civil War 1861 – 1865 supplement for Black Powder.
In 1860 Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the fledgling United States of America. Years of seething hostility between the North and South boiled over as the Southern States saw Lincoln’s election as a direct threat to their rights, and the nation fell apart as a new Confederacy was formed in the South. The Confederacy, striving to assert its independence, opened fire on the Northern troops occupying Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbour on April 12th 1861. Determined to preserve the Union, Northern troops headed south and on to Richmond! Over the next four terrible long years American armies tramped across American fields and burnt American farms as Americans killed Americans in a war the likes of which the nation had never seen before. The epic battles fought during the American Civil War proved beyond all doubt that war can be ‘all hell’.

Portuguese Infantry
Portuguese Infantry The Portuguese have never been fond of their Spanish neighbours. This was doubly so when in 1807 Napoleon sent a large French and Spanish army across the border to crush Portugal and take its fleet to continue their war against the detested British. Great Britain and Portugal, however, had been allies for countless years, and before long a largely untried British general called Wellesley was sent from London to eject the French from Portuguese soil.
The allied army was carefully organised with units of both nations mixed into divisions giving, it a distinctive character and indeed spurring on each nation to outperform the other.
The line infantry in their blue coats, and their light troops in brown, performed very well and soon had Marshall Soult back over the Pyrenees with the allied army in hot pursuit. Wellington, as Wellesley famously became, applauded his Portuguese troops calling them his ‘fighting cocks’, praise indeed from a man who knew a good soldier when he saw one.
Our plastic Portuguese soldiers are supplied with the option of the early Barretina shako used between 1806 and 1810, or the later Stovepipe-style version which entered service in 1810.
Contains:
• 20 plastic easy-build Portuguese Line Infantry.
• 4 metal command miniatures: officer, drummer and two ensigns with wire flagpoles and banner tops.
• 2-page background guide including ten full-colour flags
