18th century – underestimated or unknown?

Which era is played?

Historic Wargaming? Is there, even more than you would expect. As a rule, clubs, and players deal with the Napoleonic Wars, the American Civil War, the Second World War or antiquity (Rome, Gaul, Germania, …).

In German clubs are less frequently represented conflicts such as the First World War or biblical settings.

The Eighteenth Century, however, is really under-represented. That is why one rarely sees games and army projects, for example, the Spanish War of Succession.

The Eighteenth Century is very interesting for historical wargaming, but it offers many interesting conflicts with an almost unmanageable number of conflicting parties, such as the Spanish War of Succession, the Great Northern War, the Austro-Turkish War, the Austrian War of Succession, the War of the English Succession or the seven-year war.

Totally underestimated, or just not known?

The Eighteenth Century really is very interesting for many reasons: First, it offers a huge selection of possible conflict parties with very different and beautiful uniforms, on the other hand, it is strategically and tactically very interesting.
