Salute 2019 - Battle at Dänholm 1807



For this years Salute we will run a Demogame using the by Osprey games newly released Rebels and Patriots rules by Dan Mersey and my self. We always have a Swedish theme for our Salute games and this year will be no different, so our game will not be set in the normal Rebels and Patriots context but in Napoleonic era Europe and the epic struggle by Sweden to withstand the forces of Napoleon in the War of the Fourth Coalition 1807.

Our games revolves around the fighting on the small Island Dänholm that are located between the City of Stralsund and the Island of Rügen. The Swedish troops had surendered Stralsund to the French but keept the small but vital Island of Dänholmen to be able to secure the retreat and safe withdrawel of the Swedish Army from the Island of Rügen. But the french was eager to conclude it all and on the morning of the 25 of august 1807 they performed an amphbious assault to take the Island of Dänholmen.

Below you can see some pictures of Swedish troops I converted and painted, first you have a unit of newly awaken Swedish troops converted from different packs of  Perry miniatures AWI southern militia, the second group of picture depicts some Swedish Prisoners of war converted from Perry miniatures seated French soldiers and the last group are Wounded Swedes as well as 2 French soldiers, The Swedes are converted from Perry miniatures different napoleonic and AWI ranges to look a bit more Swedish. The French soldiers are one Perry and one Foundry.

I hope I will see you at Salute 2019.

  2. Great looking figures and a most exciting game. I wonder if Rebels and Patriots might be the rules l need to fight the battle of Trangen,something l have fancied doing or years. Do you foresee having to make anybamendments to the rules to allow for Europe based combat of the period?
    All the best with this pro.
