The Pikemans Lament at the Swedish Armymuseum

This sunday I was invited to the Swedish Armymuseum and their Wargaming exebition to run some demogames of the Pikemans Lament. I got great help from my club mateys Andy and Ulf to run the 3 games we managed to play during the day.

The setting for the games was the Scanian War 1675-1679 fought between Sweden and Denmark, primary in the region Scanian in south of Sweden.

I had made a 3 side scenario with 5 companies in total; 2 companies of Danes and Scanian Rebells (Snapphanar) that was on a mission to raid a farm for supplies, there was 2 companies of Swedes that had as a mission to burn the farm and a 3rd side with a "companie" of Scanian Allmoge that wanted to defend their homes agains both the Swedes and the Danes. We had some really caotic, fun and entertaining games indeed.

The terrain used are a part of the exebition, and the houses are perry medieval ones that yours truly built and painted for the exebition.

Below a bunch of pictures from the day. Thanks to all that came and had a look and participated in the games.

Trolls, trolls, trolls.... no fantasy gaming without trolls.

The big trolls are from the Blood rage  game and the small trolls are converted gobbos from the Warhammer Battle of skull pass box that I got from my matey Matz and Fredrik, and I got enought to make me some more units of them to:)

The big ones have got some added dwarf heads, the big Shaman also got a nose jobb. The small trolls got their nose and hook a bit biger and I re-modeled the hoods to be more tailed, I also remmoved all the moon shields and gave them new ones from the Perry plastic sudan box.
