Stargrave terrain #3

 


The Stargrave project have now come to the spaceships. Scratchbuilded the big red one from a super soaker, the big blue one are an old x-wing with added stuff, and then you have 3 smaler ships that are different star wars modelkits, x-wing, a-wing and a eta-2. The last 2 pictures are of a batman vehicle I painted up for the project.

Stargrave terrain #1

 

Starting up a small Stargrave project by fixing a gaming mat and some scenario terrain. Wanted a 90x90cm urban style mat and decided to try to brusch up tha backside of one that I already had, turned out quite god. 

Painted up 2 landing pads as well as I built me some steam ventilations for one of the scenarios from some tothpick cans, and I found some cheep steel rings to represent the hot smoke cloud bounderies in the scenario. I also managed to build me a simple "Data vault" needed in one of the scenarios using dominos that I glued together.

Last a picture of a chrached space ship, also needed in one of the scenarios, this one are a old GW from the Battle of Macragre box.

Gyllenbögelns Freicorps 1808

 

Gyllenbögels Freicorps

Was some time sins my latest Finnish War 1808 update, this time some Swedish units of the Gyllenbögelns Freicorps. The Freicop was established during the summer of 1808 on the island of Åland and under command of Captain Anders Gyllenbögeln. The Freicorps was composed of The Åland Vargering Battalion (4 companies) and the Sharpshooter Battalion (2 companies) and later the Närpes and Malaks Militia (Lantvärn) Battalion (3 companies) and probably a 3pdr regimental gun.
The Gyllenbögelns Freicorps took part in several engangements and performed quite well especially at the Battle at Lappfjärd 29th august 1808 there they took part in the rout of the Russian attackers.

The minis are a mix of Brigade game 1812 range, Perry AWI and Napoleonic as well as some Victrix plastic british converted to Swedes.

At the end you can see my totaly anacronistic flag i used for the Åland Vargering Battalion, no record of thath they even had one but I thought it would look better, so I made one up inspired by the Swedish enlisted regiments colours.
