28mm Sarissa mill

Being at Salute we bought some Sarissa stuff; one of them the 28mm post windmill in 2mm mdf.
Building it for our 28mm demo its a nice model which is very easy to build. 
But imho it misses some features of this kind of mill. As you can see of the picture of a Dutch "standerdmolen" underneath, it misses it's central standard beam on which the mill itself rotates and it misses the beam (tail) which is used to get the mill into the wind. Both peaces I have added (see picture of adding in progress) plus added some extra details. I have painted the mill grey/dark red.

Crisis 2015


Too much time has lapsed before a new message of the Alde Garde appears but our "real" time life one way or the other limited the wargame/hobby time.

So again, Crisis 2015 is nearing and of course the Alde Garde will be present.

Our initial idea was to portray the siege of Maestricht in 1748 (15mm scale) but building (a part of the fortress of Maestricht) was too time consuming on this moment; hopefully it will see the light of day a next time (or better; a next Crisis).

So back to the drawing table and we will present a Nine Years war demo in 28mm with BLB rules.
With new terrain boards (we hope), some new terrain pieces and addititions to our 28mm existing armies.
We hope to see you there. As always we like to chat about our hobby (although it means that playing the game is sometimes forgotten).
