The second day of Nopat-Club's "class trip" to Stockholm contained a visit to Sweden's Army Museum. An excellent museum and an obvious choice for a wargamer. After several hours in the museum we settled down to "fika" with our host for the day Micke aka Dalauppror and played a demo game of "La Belle Alliance aka Waterloo 1815" we have brought as a gift for The Little Wars.
Read on to see pictures from the museum and some comments on them.
The collection includes several vignettes / dioramas. Here's an example of a 30 year war unit. The "models" are really characterful and full of detail.
Closest to my interest are the sections related to the Great Northern War 1700-1721 and the so called "Finnish War" or Russo-Swedish War of 1808-1809
Details for miniature converting and painting.
Yes, I actually do quite a bit of studying before painting the miniatures.
First World War
Exchange of the Royal Guard
Finnish antitank rifle
Napoleonic wars (Russo-Swedish war 1808-1809)
Relaxed conclusion for the day with Micke: fika & Waterloo!
