1-VXDA014 LATE ROMAN HORSE ARCHERS: 28mm Figures Contains 12 superbly detailed and animated riders and horses shooting to the front, side, and rear representing the agility of these skilled mounted skirmishers. They come equipped with a powerful composite bow, bow case, arrow quiver, sword, and small round shield strapped to their upper left arm.

The torso is separate to the lower body so you can swap torsos onto alternative lower legs and rotate the torso to create more poses. A selection of powerful composite bow arms either being drawn back to shoot, loosed or being loaded. There is a selection of Bow cases and arrow quivers, plus small round shields to strap to the upper left arm and sword scabbards. There is a standard bearer option of an arm holding a Draco standard. The horse frames contain water canteens and bed rolls as optional extras. You do not use the javelin cases on these figures (These can be used as spare parts on other miniatures).

They can also be used as Early Byzantines representing the men that fought for Belisarius against the Sassanids and the reconquest of Italy from the Goths. And they can be used as Palmyran horse archers. Palmyra was a client state of Rome based in Syria. They acted as a buffer state against the Sassanid Empire and scored a notable victory over the Sassanids under their king Odenathus.1 vol, 12 pgs 2023 UK, VICTRIX LTD

1-726522 Scarrow, Simon REBELLION: Eagles of the Empire 22 AD 60. Britannia is in turmoil. The rebel leader Boudica has tasted victory, against a force of tough veterans in Camulodunum. Alerted to the rapidly spreading uprising, Governor Suetonius leads his army towards endangered Londinium with a mounted escort, led by Prefect Cato. Soon it's terrifyingly clear that Britannia is slipping into chaos and panic, with ever more tribal warriors swelling Boudica's ranks. And Cato and Suetonius are grimly aware that little preparation has been made to withstand a full-scale rebellion.

In Londinium there is devastating news. Centurion Macro is amongst those unaccounted for after the massacre at Camulodunum. Has Cato's comrade and friend made his last stand? Facing disaster, Cato prepares his next move. Dare he hope that Macro - battle-scarred and fearless - has escaped the bloodthirsty rebels? For there is only one man Cato trusts by his side as he faces the military campaign of his life. And the future of the Empire in Britannia hangs in the balance.1 vol, 352 pgs 2023 UK, HEADLINE BOOKS

1-914172 various VAE VICTIS # 172: The Ogaden War The Ogaden War pitted Ethiopia and Somalia against each other for control of a desert plateau, populated by nomadic shepherds, on the border between the two states. Taking advantage of the revolution which has just ousted Hailie Selassie from power in Ethiopia, Somalia launched two liberation movements. Both failed, so the government committed its conventional forces from July 1977 to recover this province. This conflict took place in three phases: an insurrectional phase between May and July 1977, a conventional phase from July 1977 to January 1978, and then an Ethiopian counter-offensive until March 1978 which will recover the ground lost.

Wargame uses modified and simplified rules from the game Angola 1987-1988 (VaeVictis 154). The game is won on diplomatic terrain. Tipping international organizations (UN, OAU, Arab League) to one's side has a direct impact on victory but the Somali player can achieve military victory before Soviet and Cuban aid tilts the victory to the Ethiopian side. English translation of rules included.

1-239700 Millet, Phillipe L'UNIFORME DES OFFICIERS DU SERVICE DE SANTE 1757-1814 The first English translation of L'Uniforme des Officiers du Service de Sante 1757-1814 (aka, The Officers of the Health & Medical Services' Uniforms).

This book is a detailed look at the tumultuous and ever-changing regulations and dress styles of the French doctors, surgeons, and pharmacists between the years of 1757-1814. The author writes about the origins and need for health officers and their place in the army, how the military did not want the doctors and surgeons (who were originally slandered as butchers) to wear outfits too closely to their own, and how the wealthy did not want to demean their looks by wearing an ugly attire - thus, the health officers went through countless changes in such a short time period.

The author has provided detailed colored drawings with in-depth labels, describing what the health officers wore from head to toe. They even go so far as to describe some of the noteworthy doctors and surgeons of the time, such as Baron Larrey, Desgenettes, and Lombard. From black outfits trimmed with red, to the tailcoats in the national blue trimmed in red, to what the design of the buttonholes and what shape the buttons were, the author has given a detailed but succinct record of what the different ranks of medical professions wore, as well as historical information on what caused the changes to occur.1 vol, 126 pgs 2023 US, ON MILITARY MATTERS

WARGAME: Pizzaro: The Conquest of the Inca Empire

This game is part of the Gold and Steel series which play the campaigns of the end of the 15th century and beginning of the 16th century on the strategic and tactical levels. Armies move on the map through zones representing the Incan empire and tactical battles are fought on a tactical map depicting the battlefield.

The diplomacy table indicates the evolving alliance of the Indian peoples of the Incan empire from unwavering support to doubt to change of camp which may have consequences on the battle and influence the allies' ability to recruit. Victory points are obtained through alliances, by winning major battles (involving more than ten strength points on both sides), the siege of fortresses and by controlling all nine zones designated as strategic objectives.

Throughout the game, the Spanish receive a random number of reinforcements from the New World which balance out the forces opposing the Incan military power and their enormous human resources and offers each camp a chance at victory. English translation of rules included.

1-218974 Lyall, Charles UNIFORMS OF THE ARMIES AT WATERLOO: Volume 4 - French Army This fourth volume concludes the series on the 'Uniforms of the Armies at Waterloo.'
After the previous volumes presented the Allied side, this fourth part deals with its opponents, the French Armee du Nord under the command of Napoleon I. This Northern Army, despite its short existence after Napoleon's return to France's imperial throne, consisted of numerous experienced soldiers from his earlier campaigns, with the caveat that its uniforms did not always comply with regulations due to the army's rapid mobilization.

As in the three previous volumes, this evaluates Charles Lyall's uniform plates by using the current knowledge of how the French troops appeared in 1815. Due to the special status attributed to the French Imperial Guard, especially in England, numerous Lyall plates deal with Guard units. However, some of the units depicted had already been disbanded before 1815 but the editors decided to publish them in this volume as well, along with a short commentary.

This also provides the order of battle as well as supplementary descriptions of the organization and uniforms of the Northern Army's units deployed in the Netherlands. Finally, the description of the Battle of Waterloo, begun in the first volume and continued in the following volumes, is taken up again and continued until the end with the French retreat from the battlefield. This description is accompanied by two more maps from William Siborne's Atlas to History of the Waterloo Campaign.1 vol, 96 pgs 2022, GERMANY, BERLIN ZINNFIGUREN

1-240990 Vignola, Victor CONTRASTS IN COMMAND: The Battle of Fair Oaks -- May 31 - June 1, 1862 This first major combat in the Eastern Theater since Bull Run (Manassas) almost a year earlier left more than 11,000 casualties in its wake and cost the primary Southern field army its commander. The possession of Richmond hung in its balance.

Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan marched his Army of the Potomac up the Virginia Peninsula during the early spring of 1862 and placed his inexperienced IV Corps at the tip of the spear south of the flood-prone Chickahominy River. McClellan's opponent Joe Johnston took the opportunity to strike and crafted an overly complex attack plan for his Virginia army to crush the exposed corps. A series of bungled marches, piecemeal attacks, and a lack of assertive leadership doomed the Southern plan. One of the wounded late in the day on May 31 was Johnston, whose injury led to the appointment of Robert E. Lee to take his place -- a decision that changed the course of the entire Civil War. 1 vol, 288 pgs 2023 US, SAVAS BEATIE
