15mm Gabion redoubts

January 14, 2018 by wargamerchris

I was finally able to paint some lingering terrain items over Thanksgiving which were sitting for a long time.  The one in the back is a Borodino Redoubt which will have many uses.  I primarily bought this for Polish Uprising games where the Poles used field fortifications at key river crossings.

It has two parts – allowing the guns to fire over infantry protection in the line in front.

The line in front is actually an alternative set from Old Glory and is sold as 10mm.  It’s wide at 3 pieces and has many gunports (12)  I have only AWI in 10mm but I think these will work for other periods as well.

I plucked down some of my 15mm Maximilian Adventure units for scale.

These kids d of terrain pieces will be useful from 15thC to perhaps 1880.  I love when I finally finish something that has been on the painting line a long time.
