Great Northen War, Winter Cottage and Norweigan Grenadiers


I bought a souvenir house at a flea market. The size was roughly right for 28mm miniatures. So I decided to turn it into. Terrain piece for miniature wargaming. The piece was a bit too tall. Thus I removed the lower part house structure and then I mounted it on a piece of mdf.




The house was turned into a Scandinavan cottage from the early 18th century. Since I felt I needed some more snowy terrain I just GW snow flock to cover the ground and the roof. 

The piece will be used for my latest Great Northen War project - the Trondheim Campaign 1718. 
I also completed a few miniatures to go with the cottage. Below you can see a few Norweigan Grenadiers from the Akerhus regiment. I also competed a Norwegian General...actually probably a Dane or German, most of the Officers I the Norweigan army of the time were either Dane or Germans. The Norweigan army of the Danish-Norweigan kingdom was a separate entity compared with the Danish army, but there were  comparably few Norweigans in the higher echelons of the army.





The miniatures are once more from Reiver Castings and Ebor.
