Back to Finland 1808

 Got me a new book that given me a bit of inspiration to go back to finland 1808. The book inquestion are "Finska Kriget 1808-1809" by Major General C.O. Nordensvan published in 1898. The 488 pages are a good re-cap of the Finnish War with lots of pictures maps and OOB´s, but unfortunate for most of you only in Swedish.

Anyway it got me to start re-basing the minis I had on round bases, as I feelt the need to go a bit bigger than  big-skirmish that I have been in to for the last 5-6 years and I also have a urge to play some Black Powder again, havent even tried the 2.0 version. 

Below some pictures from the book.


  1. That's a great book Michael and both the cover and illustrations are superb. BPII is a much better book and the tweaks to the rules give a much better game.

    1. Hi Matey
      Hope all is well. Looking forward to try out BPII . liked the first one very much so this should be a blast.

    1. You can get hold of a copy at

  3. "Square Bases!" new rules ;-) Bigger than R&P but smaller than BP.

  4. There is another great book on the period by a Norwegian with loads of inspiring illustrations in colour and black and white. It is about the Norwegian Swedish conflict. Your book is terrific and I look forward to seeing where your project takes you...
