WIP 6mm Battle at Brunkeberg 1471

...sorry if I shockt you with a change in scale;) I haven´t started a new 6mm project BUT I just had to show you some pictures I got from a fellow Swede that lives in the UK and are working on a stunning 6mm Battle at Brunkeberg 1471  project,

Its truly amazing and perfect nspiration for my own Kalmar Union War project that i hope will end up at this battle to at some stage...

Test base with 6mm Swedish allmoge troops, the rules of chooise will probably be Impetus.

Start of the terrain build

From a test game using painted card bases as units, Yellow for the Rebelles/Swedes and Red for the Union/Danish. Building in the centre are the St. Clare´s Priory.

Same test game, The Danes was attacked from several directions...

  6. You had me worried for a minute there Michael.
    Likewise 6mm figures not really my thing but I must say the terrain looks great and with this scale really gives the impression of a real landscape.

  7. This is my scale of choice. I use haircurler armies and really enjoy the mass effect of small scale and in many cases i use 28mm bases to increase the effects of large units. I love the scenary being used here.

  8. One would have to tip the hat at the dedication to detail, and creating a historically correct battle table. Indeed impressive.

  10. Very impressive! Good use of the possibilities of the small scale.

    I must admit I too, have felt the pull of the smaller scales but I tried painting 6 mm miniatures and found it too boring and gave up half-way through a project.

  12. Very nice project. The terrain is very good, and you can see really the battlefield in this scale. I would have put more figures in the bases, for the effect of mass and large units.
    Fantastic!
