A frozen herring war...

I've been working towards a 19th Century Square Brigadier game. As I was involved in the Herring War campaign in Padre Paul's Funny Little Wars Campaign book it was natural to do something with a Scandinavian vibe.So I have begun to gather figures (thanks to Conrad Kinch for the great majority so far) for the Kingdom of Lurland aand it's arch rival the Kingdom of Norroway.
I got a sheet of A1 card from my daughter,drew2.5 inch squares on it and added a river& road with coloured pencils. Trees were set down to see the effect and a couple of wee wooden houses ( with white painted roofs) added.I was relatively pleased with the results.
Some Norroway Guard running down the road. Hope to get more painted tomorrow. I am looking forward to a frozen herring war.


  1. Tradgardmastare,

    This is looking very interesting! I look forward to reading your battle report.

    All the best,


  2. I'm glad that the snow here is almost gone but the snow there looks great. The Guards embarked yesterday.

  3. Looks like a good setup and start to what I'm sure will be a fun game.
    As for herrings, you know what they say, "smoke 'em if you got 'em". Win one for the kipper!

  4. Looking good (and chilly). Are those Airfix ACW chaps?
