Donnybrook AAR #4

Hi

Last week we hade one more game of Donnybrook during the Scanian War. "The Ambuch at Örkeljunga Church 1676" you find it at my blog.

August 1676, the Swedish army was on the march to Halmstad to settle the scores with a Danish force under Commander Duncan that was on their way to seize the town Halmstad.

This small scenario depicts an Ambush of a Swedish supply column that was awaiting new beasts of burden for the supply wagons. The animals should, according to the law, be provided by the local farmers.

Most of the men in the Supply column are away to gather the reluctant farmers and their beasts. Just a few Swedish soldiers have been left to protect the supplies, it’s a perfect time for the Friskyttar to attack and destroy the supplies…

Michael,
What a very good looking game table. Is the church under construction a model or did you add to it to make it look different?

That's an excellent job you have made of scratch building that church, are the cottages and windmill scratch built by yourself?
Cheers
