Martin Tomczak SYW Link Added

I found a new website devoted to the Austrian vs. Prussian portion of the Seven Years War. The website owner is Martin Tomczak and I have added a link to this information on the left hand side of the page. There are many useful articles in English and in German to be found on the website, so do take a minute and click on the link and see for yourself.

On the painting front, I am working on the second squadron of Hinchcliffe Austrian cuirassiers for the De Ville Regiment. I hope to have at least 3 squadrons done in time to use in our upcoming Leuthen wargame on February 28, 2009. If I really crank things up, there is an outside chance of adding a fourth squadron this month.


  1. Jim,

    There's a problem with the Tomczak link . . . it gives me your site again . . . with this specific post.

  2. Jeff,

    the link worked fine when I clicked on it.


  3. Doh . . . I was clicking on the "Archives" link . . . not the "Link" link.

    Guess that's what I get for trying to do things when I have a nasty head cold.

  4. Thanks Jim, it's a nice resource.

    I liked the article on the revolts of the Prussian bakers - there's an idea or two for an amusing skirmish game there.

  5. I have met Martin a couple of times, he is another wargames recluse on the shores of Wild Wales.

    He is real Gentleman and a terrific scholar of German and Polish military history. His websites were down for a few years when his health was a bit iffy. So I am delighted to see the SYW one back again.

    Thanks for drawing attention to it.
