Salute 2014 – Horse & Musket

Battle displays from the 18th and 19th centuries always make for a visual spectacle with plenty of colourful uniforms, banners, cannon and cavalry. Salute 2014 had its fair share of these as would be expected.

The South London Warlords’ own Battle of Barbastro during the 1st Carlist War was arguably the most imposing and also had plenty of nice little touches.

  1. An outstanding set of Salute reports. I’ve enjoyed each one so far. Those tables are always an interesting mixture of inspiration and intimidation. Great photos – well done!

    • Glad you are enjoying them! The displays are the main draw for me at Salute, shopping is just secondary. Always coming back with a renewed interest in settings and historical eras I hadn’t considered much previously. Of course not a lot makes it into an actual new project but it’s great to see the variety our hobby has to offer.
