Streeter's Plan of Naseby in 15mm

In a moment of madness I wondered if it would be possible to recreate Streeter's famous plan of Naseby using my 15mm figures.

Streeter's Plan of Naseby

Bit of a problem, haven't got a copy of Streeter's Plan; I do however have an original copy of Sturt's Plan. (If you don't know what I'm talking about see here for an explanation.)

My original Sturt
Some 'egging on' meant it was happening...
Some caveats: topography wasn't going to be in the recreation, nor were the correct regiments in the correct places (shoddy, I know) for example Waller's dragoons stood in for Okey's at Sulby Hedges (there is a little bit of real Sulby Hedges grit on their basing though - does that count?).
Figures from Peter Pig, buildings form Hovels, Peter Pig, Total Battle Miniatures, Naseby windmill is my own conversion of an Ironclad Miniatures Russian windmill. hedges are from S&A Scenics, and roads from Fat Frank.

  2. Oddly I was going to use the word ‘cracking’ too. Cracking display Radar. Looks like the plan.

    1. Thanks, I think if I was doing it again I'd slant the main lines a bit more: mine look a little too square compared to Streeter and Sturt.

  3. That's bloody brilliant! Well done!

    1. Thank you. It has been suggested I apply a sepia filter to my Plan photo to go for the full effect
