New Wargaming Catalonia booklet...

Just a quick update before I get back to the American Civil War artillery on the painting table...

Some of you may remember last year that a few of my fellow bloggers and I with an interest in such things made reference to a truly excellent (and free!) booklet from the Wargames Catalonia [click here] wargame group in Spain, called "Catalonia Stands Alone - 1713-1714: The Catalans' War"... well there's some good news....

First there is now a second edition of the booklet - you can get it [ here ] - it's been updated and added too since the issue that was published last year with new flag pages...

The next piece of news is that the group have published a second booklet for the period, and theatre of war... "Urn of Honour" is about the assault on Barcelona in 1714.. in their words "September 11, 1714, massive assault carried on by over 18,000 Two Crowns' troops on Barcelona after a 13-month-long siege - as well as the chaotic, bloody urban fighting happened in the 20 following hours - as a pretext to compile and review the information we've been able to collect about the French and Spanish infantry, dragoons and artillery battalions directly involved in that out-of-time, Stalingrad-like battle; besides, it also takes into consideration a few Catalan lesser units not studied in our first booklet (either for lack of information enough or physical space)."

Only in Catalan for the time being, but still worth getting for the excellent pictures and graphics - it will be released with English text later this year (hopefully!) You can get it from [ here ]..

...now - back to the painting table and I return you to your normal programming...
