The latest scenery for the Battle of Starsfeld 1813. To be played on a 12 x 12 table in Berkshire, UK.

Worth pointing out some notes on the terrain. The teddy bear fur was bought from a company in Birmingham, then spray painted with emulsion pale green/yellow/brown/white to create the right effect. 80% of the fur needs to be trimmed off before you start.

Roads, trees, river, bridges, hedges, graveyard are all from Keith Warren in Dover, UK. Farmhouse in the distance and the church are both Faller products.
The remaining buildings, including the windmill, are from those nice chaps in Germany who are responsible for arguably the best napoleonic display ever seen...Croebern 1813.

So it is possible to create decent terrain on which to place your figures. However you will be left with a very large hole in your wallet.

This weekend it is Prussians and Russians vs French, Poles and Saxons.
80% of the figures will be metal. Mainly Newline for the infantry and Art Miniaturen for the cavalry, artillery and command.

Watch this space....will be fun.
