Siege of Haengju Terrain WIP
For the Imjin War game, I decided to go with the Siege of Haengju. It involved the successful Choson Korean General Kwon Yul and several famous Japanese generals, including Kuroda Nagamasa - two figures I have already. One of the three most-celebrated Korean victories during the Imjin War, this battle took place a little north of Seoul, which the Japanese had already captured and occupied. Actually, the Korean king and his retinue had already fled the capital before the Japanese arrived. Kwon Yul with a small force of regular troop moved to an old hilltop fortress near the village of Haengju. It was here that the Japanese, greatly outnumbering the Korean defenders, decided to wipe out any resistance before the Ming forces arrived as reinforcements. I plan to alter history a bit by allowing relief Ming Cavalry to arrive, as well as Korean Cavalry. The actual battle was mainly an infantry battle as far as I can tell. Although some very cool Korean artillery was used, like something called Water-Wheel Rock Cannon. Here are some WIP pictures of the table I started on this afternoon.
