:lol: Thought I'd better post here after pointing out the 95 missing years, plus play with the twidley bits :twisted:

It's good having lots of COLOURS to play with and lots of sizes too.

Dear Cal, Can you please divide this section up into at least two. The 18th century is one thing and 1790's - 1820 another. We may get Napoleonics people posting if they have a separate place to go.

I'd suggest changing the era to 1715-1820 as the old forum (1700-1800) was rather quiet and after a quick look at 1800-1900 that didn't seem excessively active with postings still listed from over a year ago.

On the old forum most of the 1700-1800 post are to or from Lace Wars members (covering mid 18th century) or Napoleonic. With the majority covering 1720's - 1750's and going back to 2003. :(

By extending the era it would bring a smaller interest period (Jacobite Rebellion) in with a larger interest period. Both of which use similar weapons and personal Items (most of the LW muskets are later model Bess).

On the other hand costumes changed around 1780/90's and Napoleonic people are very specifically 1800 - 1820 ish and there are thousands of them. There is nowhere specific on here for them to have a chat or to tell us what is going on in their era. Can't help being nosy :o)

As far as I know other than NFOE, Lace Wars and White Cockade no one else is really covering the mid 18th century. So why not make it 1730 - 1760.
Steve I now know where all Finns crayons go that he gets at resteraunts, I like to play with colours hmmmm, should I give you gun powder? :)

Was it made by a decendant of William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots? If not then it's not the real deal. :twisted:
