For a limited time, we're giving you The Duke of Marlborough, Mounted on Horseback FREE with the Marlborough War's starter army - Allowing you to play one of Britain's most loved Generals in your games.
Fought between 1701 and 1714, the War of the Spanish Succession began with a dispute between King Louis XIV of France and Emperor Leopold I of Austria about who should inherit the vacant throne of Spain. Before long a ‘Grand Alliance’ of countries, including the British, Dutch and some German states had entered the war to back the Austrians and oppose the ambitions of King Louis, the ‘Sun King’. This was one of the first truly global conflicts, being fought in Spain, Italy, Germany, the Low Countries and overseas in the New World, and involved all the major European powers of the day.
The plastic figures are from Warlords partnership with Wargames Factory and are superbly detailed.
This starter army is an ideal starting point for a new army or to add reinforcements to an existing force. Throughout the War of Spanish Succession the uniforms of the main protagonists on each side were largely the same with only the colour of the uniforms being the discerning factor. As such this set is just the job for French, British, Bavarian, Dutch, etc.
Starter Army includes:
96 multi-part plastic Marlburian Infantry
12 multi-part plastic Marlburian Cavalry
3 multi-part plastic artillery pieces with 12 crew
3 mounted officers
Banners for armies of the Sun King and the Grand Alliance
