Siege of Haengju - Set Up

Finished the outer barricade of stakes, as well as basing the cavalry on stands of three figures each. Here are some shots of the units staged as they might be in the final assault of the Japanese. The light troops (bowmen and teppo) are on stands spaced about an inch apart to reflect them in open order.
General Kwon Yul with the reserves and Hwa Cha batteries behind the stone walls of the ancient fortress.
Samurai cavalry move up - General Kuroda Nagamasa surveying the action to their left.
Ming heavy cavalry move on the right flank (not part of the actual historical battle).
Right flank of the Japanese - spearmen and foot samurai supported by open ordered teppo and archers.
Close up of the outnumbered Koreans behind their protective barricades.
Korean cavalry moving out on their left flank (also, not part of the actual battle, but...)
A play test will shortly follow. Thanks for visiting the blog!

  2. A treat for the eyes! Once again, I can hardly fathom how you do so much, so quickly and so very well.

    What rules are you using here?

  3. Great work Dean. The bamboo stakes look good, and you have done well to create the whole battle. Interesting period of history you are showcasing. Makes me want to get out the history books.

  4. The game layout looks terrific! Your conversion of bamboo sushi rollers into palisades worked well. Looking forward to seeing how the game plays out.

    Again, very nice job and your figures are really handsome!

  6. Nice to see these armies getting some exposure Dean, really unusual period.
    The barricade idea is fantastic, I will have to plagiarise this for my Hellenistic marching forts.

    Great stuff as ever

    Regards HGA.

  17. This is amazing stuff, Dean, and it's really piquing my interest in this period of history.

    Between you and Michael over at Dalauppror, I'm getting a crash course in unjustly-neglected conflicts of the 17th century. Just goes to show that it's never too late to know something new!

    Lovely work!
