Horse & Musket wargaming-Tradgardland 1805

Morning all.I have decided to post some pictures of my attempt to make a portable wargame set up for the horse and musket period.I have used a chess board for the trial game but hope to get some green felt to use later.Anyway the fun is experimenting at present.I have set the game between the forces of the Kingdom of Denmark and the Duchy of Tradgardland 1805.
Figures are essentially Minifigs based in sixes from a display game some years ago of the battle of Koge.
The Tradgardland Militia defend a village from the invaders.
I am pleased with the results so far and look foward to adding forces and tweaking the set up...

  1. Tradgardmastare,

    A very nice set up! I like the buildings (I have a box full of them and I find them ideal for wargaming) and the chessboard is almost exactly like the one I have used for some of my PW battle. The figures are also very impressive ... and I love the Tradgardland Militia.

    Good luck with you battle.

    All the best,

    Bob

  2. Fantastic! Are those 15mm minis?

    I had a set of wooden buildings like that as a kid.

  3. Mike the figures are indeed 15mm in scale.

  4. Those buildings inspired me to create an entire wargame made of wood.
    I use it as a public display at Napoleonic period re-enactments, in my role as a French pensioner from les Invalides
    Currently I am showing the battles of "20 years ago" in my time frame - the glorious exploits of 1792.
