17th century Polish-Lithuanian village

Just wanted to share a few pictures of the houses me and Andreas have in our collection. The buildings are a mix of Wargamer and an unknown manufacturer, the number of buildings allow us to properly equip table for the "Forage supplies" scenario where you should ideally have 3 buildings at each edge of the table. But we may also field a cull village like this if we would want to, though I must advice against such terrain density as shown on these pictures (which are just for show) since it would make moving units around very difficult. Though I can see it working on a larger table like a 6x4' /180x120cm playing area during division games with 1 side defending an entire village from the enemy attack. Or perhaps some kind of custom scenario for Skirmish level games where you have a village in the middle of the board and the enemy attacks you from two fronts with overwhelming forces. Worth thinking about.

In any case, some great buildings right there.

    1. I too am waiting for the KS to deliver - I'm just worried the delivery from Wargamer.pl may occur at the same time as the delivery from West Wind Requiem kickstarter, in which case I'm buried in lead :-D

      It's going to be great to play this with all the guys at the club though, I'm currently painting my last few units (very last banner of cossack cavalry, and then a banner of Pancerni). After that I will finally be done with painting the Polish-Lithuanian cavalry and pick up some Reiters with western uniforms and looks for my Lithuanian skirmish lists :-)

      I'm starting to feel the Stockholm syndrome with painting all the cavalry.
