We were asked to stage a wargame for the Annual meeting of the Dutch Foundation for Model Figures (Nederlandse Stichting voor Modelfiguren).
As this was to be held in the National Tin Figures Museum (Nationaal Tinnen Figuren Museum) at Ommen, Netherlands and of course we always like to give attention to wargames plus the special attention of the annual meeting was to the Batavian Republic, we were gladly to give a demonstration with our French Revolution game (just before the Batavian Republic).
There were two interesting lectures about the Batavian period and its army by Geert van Uythoven (his book about the 1799 Russian-British invasion of Holland - The Secret Expedition- is recommended) and Marijn Vink.
The museum at Ommen is recommended and, although not very big, houses a lot of great big diorama's, the history of tin figures and about 50 smaller diorama's by Wieringa which we think are great. Therse are not (always) about military history but about general history.
Some pictures of our game:
