Just My Imagi-Nation Part 5: Forces of GrosseKleinStadt

I've now painted and based at least one of each unit type in the GrosseKleinStadt army, so time to post some pictures.


Everything I have painted and based for this army so far.  Fifteen units and the general.  Eleven more units to go.


The General.  I only need one, so complete.


Guard Infantry.  I have one unit, one more required.


Line Infantry.  Got three, need five more.


Militia.  Two done, two to go.


Skirmishers.  Again, two done, two more needed.


Cuirassiers.  Just the one unit of these, so complete.


Dragoons.  One painted, one more still to be done.


Hussars.  Just the one unit of these in the army.  Complete


Artillery.  Four units of these, all with bronze guns.  Complete.

    What rules will you use for games with them?

    1. Neil Thomas's 19th Century rules, he takes a very broad brush approach that gives the right flavour without going into details, much like my figures I think lol

    3. That makes sense. I like his rules, though I do tend to tweak them here and there, and to add systems to determine the fate of my personal general figure, should he come under fire or be involved in close combat.
      I notice your units seem to be deployed on a square grid. If you haven't already done so, may I suggest you look at Bob Cordery's Morschauser-inspired Portable Wargame rules on his Wargaming Miscellany blog?

    4. I use square grids (and hex grids) for rules I write myself, but I also use the grid in 'normal' games, where it is used to determine terrain. Any trees in a square and the whole square is woods, a couple of rough ground terrain pieces and it's rough going.

      I've read Bob Cordery's blog, they inspired me to buy the reprint of Morschauser. Very good for ideas and inspiration. :)
