A week from today, Saturday October 29th, 10 AM - 5 PM is our next Snappy Nappy Campaign-in-a-Day event, to be held at The Portal in Manchester, CT once again. This time the action centers on the Northern flank of Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812, with Mark T. as GM and myself and Dan assisting. This weekend ids the time for setting up the troops for the various commands, as well as doing a dry run set up of the tables that I will be setting up.
These buildings are from Scott Washburn's Paper terrain
Not really Russian; I got them for the 1809 campaign that was supposed to run in April 2020; we know how every thing went then, at the height of the Pandemic!
In fairness to Scott and his product, these are the bare bones versions, assembled over a few evenings.
There are gables, awnings, sheds and garden walls, as well as ruined versions of all the buildings to be completed another time.
This is "European Village set #2".
I purchased it at Historicon 2019 direct from Scott's booth.
It, and set #1, which i will probably purchase at Historicon 2023, come in versions with red or grey roofs; obviously, this is an example of the later!
The second half of the set of 12 buildings.
A nice variety of sizes and shapes.
Adding the dormers, chimneys, walls and sheds will add a lot of nice detail.
For now, the simple versions gets the job done in the time available, thoughj!
A little black ink along the fold lines and cut edges can also kick up the presentation value; tasks for another day as well!
The 15 mm terrain works well with my 28's and Snappy Nappy, where an infantry unit is just 2 bases.
All of the many tables for the Campaign event will be 4 x 6 feet in size; time to start laying out the tables I am responsible for now!
