Following the Swedish Victory at Lund in December 1676, the Swedish terror has intensified and the Scanian population are suffering. You are part of a small band of Scanians fighting what you see as the Swedish occupation following Scania being captured by Sweden in 1658. You are not Swedes, you are Scanian men first and Danes second, you will never become Swedes. You are currently operating in the area around Lund and there are whispers of strange events that the locals think are associated with the corpses lying in piles after the battle until the winter had lost its grip on the frozen ground and they could be buried in the ground. For months they were lying there robbed first of their material possessions by greedy locals second their souls taken and ravaged by God knows what. The nights seem darker and the howling of the wolves sounds like the raging frenzy of the Fenris Wolf of the old pagan stories, something has risen, something evil, a Dark Master sneaking in the forest. Trolls, goblins, demons all are now common place words amongst the scared population and is causing added complication to what is now mostly a small scale conflict.

Excellent idea, and a fine choice of alternate time period.

Great narrative. I love how you made the game fit your own setting.

Intriguing! I knew nothing about the battle of Lund and it's aftermath but with a little tweaking (e.g. As you say in your blog, no rifles) it looks as though the rules should work fine for your project.  Let us know of  any other changes to the rules you introduce to fit this era. I really like seeing units comprised of figures from different sources that work well together as a unit like yours do. And the photography is great too!

Excellent idea.  In fact the entire concept seems more at home in the post-30 Years War environment.
