On this page I have put some excellent photographs of some Great
Northern War games. The figures were painted, terrain made and the
game staged by Ian Cluskey and Keith Gendle of the Humberside
Wargames Society at the Partizan show in the UK.
The games were fought using the Polemos: Great Northern War
rules. These rules are part of a series of rules for large scale
actions with any scale of figures.
The figures are all from the excellent ranges of Baccus
Miniatures - yes they are 6mm!!! They show what can be achieved
with this scale and how this scale can capture the feel of a real
battle. Of course it helps if you have talented painters, organisers
and players like Ian and Keith.
Please feel free to ask questions, make comments, criticisms, etc
- please contact me. I
will pass comments on to the games creators.
The Battle of Gemauerthof (1705)
Gemauerthof was a historical battle that happened in 1705 in the
Baltic area. It was fought between Lewenhaupt's 'rag tag' Baltic
army and a Russian 'flying column' of mainly Dragoons with a small
amount of infantry mounted on horses.
The first refight of this battle ended with victory for the Swedes.
But the Russians are hoping for a second chance soon :)
Army lists for these armies are available here - Army Lists.
