Battle of Brunkeberg 1471 in Miniature Wargames issu 376



Today is a good day, my birthday and I got the latest Miniature Wargames, issu 376, from my Swedish friend Jan that live in the UK.

The reason that he sent it was that he have writen a very interesting article about his 6mm Battle of Brunkeber 1471 project. Some of you might remember that I have published some pictures of his project here at my blog.

Now you all can read about it in the Miniature Wargames, issu 376, so pick up a copy and learn about some Swedish military history:)

Swedish Allmoge soldiers drawn by Jan and the originale kindley given to me today, 
thanks Jan !!! the best birtday gift one could get:)


Jan´s article are 6 pages and tells a historical background, OOB for Impetus (the rules they used) and also a bit aboit how Jan Built his amasing custom made terrain, as a Jan is a handycraft teacher it is a qualiry build and I hope he will bring it to some UK convention as it is well worth displaying.

Here are the pictures of his gaming board that I showed here at the blog some time ago.

  7. Happy birthday. Very interesting sketches of the Allmoge soldiers, they remind me of the Paul Dolstein drawings of Swedish soldiers with the distinctive baggy trousers and kettle helmets with eye slits.
    Have a great birthday

  9. Happy birthday Michael – I hope you have a great day!

    That Brunkeberg project is mighty impressive. But I think it will look even more impressive when you do it yourself in 28 mm scale ... ;)
