My 6mm Napoleonic project is going to focus on the titanic struggles between the French and Austrian forces. I have always been interested in these fights, especially the 1809 Danube campaign. Others have done a far better job describing it, so I will leave the particulars to them.
My opening project then will be the Battle of Teugn-Hausen . This seems an ideal jumping off point as it was a relartively small engagement with comparable forces. I found several excellent scenarios for different rule systems including this one my Keith McNelly.
I purchased one of GHQ's Skirmish Board sets a couple of months ago and wanted to experiment with one of the boards. I started with one of the blank boards:
and then added a 15cm Grid System to help transfer my reference map
Next it was a simple task to the terrain information
Then using craft foam to create the low hills
A little rough shaping with some sandpaper and then returning the guide lines.
Next comes the paint and a rough addition of flocking
Now that the easy part is done I have to figure out how to
- Sculpt the buildings for the towns.
- Add farmlands
- Assemble modular forests to accommodate my figures.
