The portable Imagination circa 1801

It is Saturday morning .Last night I managed to finish basing the figures and glue the Tradgardland Militia colours to their standardbearers after a busy week at school.Prior to going to bed I set up the game on the dining room table.It is on a 13inch square flooring tile.Here is the situation at the start of the game-
The Tradgardland Militia (commanded by Duke Karl Frederick iv himself) are defending a small market town.The Duke's command consists of 5 units of Militia (rated poor in the rules) a unit of artillery and a squadron of  hussars. Attempting to take the village are their arch enemies ( in the Enlightenment Age at least) from the Kingdom of Denmark commanded by General A E Bertgesson. He commands five infantry units ( 2 average and three poor) two cavalry ( militia rated poor and line rated average) a unit of artillery and  one of light infantry in the shape of  Frivillige Korps Livjeger.
I can't wait to see what happens when the game commences after I pour myself another cup of tea..
Finally another view of the battlefield-Duke Karl frederick and his army awaiting the assault...


  1. I am looking forward to seeing this battle unfold. Very nice setup and troop there.

  2. Tradgardmastare,

    The figures, terrain, and buildings look absolutely right together ... and I am looking forward to seeing how this battle unfolds.

    All the best,


  3. The buildings are just right for the size of the table. That should make a fun game.

  4. Ideal setting for a solo wargamer. I too will follow your progress on this one ... Jeff

  5. Huh - this is a much more congenial setup than that grubby modern nonsense indulged in by that Cordery fellow. But where shall I find a square grid?
