Wikipedia: A concertina is a free-reed musical instrument, like the variousaccordions and the harmonica. It has a bellows and buttons typically on both ends of it. When pressed, the buttons travel in the same direction as the bellows, unlike accordion buttons which travel perpendicularly to it. Also, each button produces one note, while accordions typically can produce chords with a single button.

The concertina was developed in England and Germany, most likely independently. The English version was invented in 1829 by Sir Charles Wheatstone and a patent for an improved version was filed by him in 1844. The German version was announced in 1834 by Carl Friedrich Uhlig.

112 Demi-Brigade of 1794 by Michaelozzie

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Although it was a French army, it was filled mainly with Belgians.

After all the well-suited armies standing perfect in line and shooting at the same time, Michaelozzie has now made an army with a far more ragged look and formed out of volunteers. Usually you can guess what the rest of an army looks like by viewing only 3 soldiers. This time, almost every soldier is unique which makes the army very interesting to take a look at.

'A watchful eye'

Being inspired by the movie Master and Commander; the far side of the world and by the new game Napoleon:Total War, Captainkiwi has built an awesome privateer ship. The custom sails, the slanted stern and some other things make it look very good. The name 'Vigilant', meaning 'a watchful eye', really suits this ship and so does the figurehead. Captainkiwi has improved his building skills since his first MOC, the HMS Royale, and with a good result.

So check out Le Vigilant by Captainkiwi in the forum!
