History is Fun

Hi everyone!

The National Museum of History after it opened to the public

Well this has been a great long weekend for me.
On Friday Soren and I drove to Copenhagen for the 2016 DFFCON wargamers convention.  It was help this year in an amazing room in the National History Museum.  There were a lot of visitors, probably over 150 people came to see what we were doing. There were a lot of game set up and all had fun.

The gaming room! Really nice!!!

The game masters setting up the tables before we open

On Saturday,Soren and I ran two games of Form Lind of Battle and the players fought the Battle of Koge Bay in 1677.  I created the Order of battle based on the miniatures we had and the historic ships that took part in the battle.  I will do a separate AAR of the two battles once I get some more time to look over the data from the battles.  Both games ended as a Danish victory but both battles were good and there was a lot of fun at our table.

Our little game!

The two Navies lined up for battle

A game of Ronin!

Great trench work!!!

The Eastern Front for Chain of Commad

On Sunday we ran a what if scenario for 1918 with our WWI ships we have.  The USA was escorting a troop transport and was intercepted by a German squadron out for a fight.  It was a good game with exploding ships and lots of excitement. Again I will do a AAR once I get some time.

Great looking 15mm figures for Chain of Command

German Tanks!!!

  1. Looks great. I was this summer but can't tell where in the building you held the event. Had I known, I would have sent along a copy of our Great Northern Compendium for viewing. Let me know if any other major Scandinavian conventions are in the offing.

  2. Hi
    I participated in the second round of the event.
    Is i possible to get the Ship data sheets sent to me?

    1. Sure thing, I just need an email address for you. I asume you want the data sheets from the Koge Bay scenario?
