I've been playing in a DBR Seven Years War campaign this weekend and it has rekindled my interest in the ECW armies I painted up for a DBA/DBR campaign a few years ago. Jut got home and went to look at what I have and all seems OK, but no camps or baggage stands. So I'm looking for inspiration and suggestions as to useful figures or models, pictures of things that others have done, etc. Can anyone help?

DBR Seven Years War

I am intrigued. You are using DBR rules for a Seven Years War campaign? I would have thought they are a bit early. Or have you modified them somehow?

I would have thought they are a bit early.

I would think stands of shotte would function pretty well as infantry. You could "rebrand" various other types as different classes of horse.

English troops often didn't have tents but they were renown for building improvised huts. The best model for a camp would be the wagon train that was often a target for Royalist cavalry. Take a look at some of the period woodcut illustrations of battlefield deployments for ideas.

This is how Streeter shows the Artillery Train at Naseby …

… various impedimenta ringed by a guard of firelocks.

Of course according to some accounts this defended baggage park was briefly engaged during the battle – so would be appropriate as inspiration for a DBA/DBR/Fog-R camp …

Hope it helps

Very interesting drawing Phil.

From a gaming point of view I plan to update my own ECW DBR baggage. In 15mm I rather like a bar table and servants from Museum Miniatures. I plan to add to some wagons and perhaps some items from Baeuda's range.
