Recreating Morschauser’s original gridded wargame in 54mm-scalePosted: June 23, 2013
I have been trawling eBay for possible additional figures for my collection, and I have several bids in place which will, if they are successful, increase the size of my FLW army to approximately twice it’s present strength.
Morschauser mounted three 54mm-scale foot figures, two mounted figures, and two gunner figures and a cannon on a 3-inch square base. This would mean that I would need less than 50 figures per side to fight a battle on a 12 x 12 grid … and this quite achievable.
I decided to see what 54mm-scale figures would look like on 3-inch square bases … so I put my latest Funny Little Wars recruits onto some pre-cut 3-inch bases that I had to hand!
I must admit that I am quite impressed with the ‘look’ of the whole thing … although the ‘gunner’ at the back does need a companion to properly complete the set-up!
With the current upsurge in interest in Old School Wargaming, I might just have ‘found’ a possible session for COW2014.
