The Peat Ship of Breda 1590

A pictorial report of our recent game playing the Peat Ship of Breda raid, a famous episode (at least in the Netherlands) of the Dutch Revolt.

Fabulous table by Patrick "Pats Laser Cuttings" Diederiks and Anton Boot. Figures painted by Julius van Roemburg and yours truly. Scenario and peat ship model by me and to be published at some time in the future.

  3. Looks brilliant, with fantastic buildings and terrain and figures ... all so evocative of the period. But what in the world are those shiny yellow circles?

    I'll have to look up the Peat Ship story, because (although my parents are Dutch) I've never heard it! Sods intriguing ...

    1. The yellow circles are light circles made by lanterns. The raid took place at night and the scenario allowed for sentries and limited visibility.
