Field bakeriy

I cam across a picture of Dirk Langendijk which is known as a reliable source for depiction uniforms of the late 18th century period (including the FR period).
As i was looking for a theme for the Crisis show of November2020 (now sadly cancelled) I thought this would be a good new addition to our FR wargame.
The first picture is the plate by Langendijk and the second a bigger pic of the mobile ovens, the third of the tents with bakers.


I tried to model three mobile ovens and find suitable figures for it made by Black Hussar Miniatures although these are ment for the YW, I think they are suitable for my little Dutch project.

As said in the title, what to do.
I am prparing some units and finished my interpretation of the 1793 Austrian Slavonisch-Croatisches freikorps for our French Revolutionary armies. 
The Arteria plate of this unit is;  
My intrerpretation is underneath, used figures are from Wargames Foundry, Russian 7YW pandours


And secondly we needed some new 28mm roads, so these are in preparation

Warcon Gent february 2020

Warcon Gent was again a very nice show. It turned out that more clubs were present as were a lot of traders. Also a group of boardgamers turned up this year for the first time.

It is each year a very friendly show with a bring and buy (we didn't ought anything there  although some prĂ© ordered French Revolutionary figures (for Jans'collection) and 80 Years War for Peters one  were collected. Not as many as previous year but our lead mountain has already taken up to much space.

In our opninion there were a lot of great games played of which some pictures underneath.

We took our 15mm Siege of Maestricht with us which we already showed to the public at the last Crisis show. It got enough attention and favourable remarks from the public, so thanks for those who talked to us about the game, figures and rules. Hope to see you again.

So to the pictures of the show; as always just a quick tour as we have to man our table to get at least the impression that we play (and not just talk and talk).
La ligue des gentlemen Civilateurs with an ancient naval table; great to see.




 The other one late medieval one was by the heavy brigade. As we like medieval games with all their splendor, we enjoyed these both games.



Pictures of other games of which we don't know the names of the presenting clubs; sorry for that.
As I said earlier, a lot of games weree very nice which the pictures underneath will show I think.













Pictures of our game we have kept to the last; of course we added some figures, new terrain pieces etc:

Overloon: ww2 wargames meeting

It maybe becomes a tradition but at the end of the year, a group of wargamers come together at the Overloon War Museum and play some Second World War games.
We didn't wargame there as we don't have any WW2 games (yet?) but visited the museum and the games.
Some pictures underneath
