Charles XI’s War: The Scanian War between Sweden and Denmark, 1675-1679

The book describes and analyses the Scanian War, which was fought from 1675 to 1679 between, on one side, primarily Brandenburg and Denmark–Norway and, on the other, Sweden.

The war was mainly fought in Scania, the former Danish lands along the border with Sweden, and in northern Germany. The Danish objective was to retrieve Scania which, a generation earlier, had been captured by Sweden and ceded by Denmark. However, the Danish invasion of Scania was defeated by the young Swedish King Charles XI.

Although the Danish fleet was victorious at sea, and an alliance headed by Brandenburg defeated the Swedes in Germany, the subsequent peace negotiations resulted in no major territorial changes. Danish partisans continued guerrilla operations in Scania for years, yet the former Danish territories remained in Swedish hands. The Scanian War was bloody, even by contemporary standards, and from a military point of view, quite inconclusive.

Yet, Sweden's experiences in the Scanian War laid the foundation for the first substantial reform of the Swedish army since the Thirty Years’ War. Based on what he had learnt, King Charles XI restructured the Swedish army and established a comprehensive military system that enabled Sweden to repeatedly mobilise trained armies during the even more devastating Great Northern War (1700-1721) which followed a generation later. Moreover, several recent archaeological excavations have increased our knowledge of the Scanian War, as well as the conditions of late seventeenth-century battles.

The book describes the war and its results, and summarises the archaeological findings.

Project Update #12: Kickstarter for 10mm Demon Infantry Miniatures from Black Gate Miniatures

Project Update #11: Kickstarter for 10mm Demon Infantry Miniatures from Black Gate Miniatures

The first of the intermittent updates during the dead period between the Kickstarter ending and the sculpts arriving.

Not a lot has happened, it took almost three weeks for Kickstarter to release the funds, which seemed a little longer than for previous campaigns.

Christian has been paid for all his incredible art and this are progressing with my sculptor Robi. I have also ordered some previsions for the moulding and casting process.

Not much will change for a few months but I will do my best to post monthly at a minimum, hopefully with pictures of sculpts etc.

Demons forever!

Hail thee!

Just a short update about the ongoing wok in the background. I have some private stuff to come over at the moment that is the reason why there was no update before. Please apologise my absence.  I had to use the time for more urgent matters.

I will give you a short look on the small straight and round palisade pieces. Both are molded and casted already. So for 10mm to15mm they are ready,

This will be my display scenario in my display cabinet. I hope i get it still done until the campaign ends. I will need it also for the greenhorde that is incoming in a few weeks. So the outpost will be under attack of a few dozen orks and goblins soon. And at this time you will get my dwarfs as STL campaign as well.


The tower will reside on a steep rock. Via some beams you can access the ramp rock. The rock tiles ad some beams will be in the STL package in a scanned and reworked version.


Here you can see some round palisade parts in the middle. They are molded and casted already.

Fare thee well! And happy easter
