we, the Napoleonic Nuts of Singapore, have in
common is a love of recreating Napoleonic battles
in miniature. Although each of us has been doing
this for a very long time now (I have been
wargaming for 23 years), we have only gotten
together very recently. The internet is a great
tool for finding people with similar interests!
there are only very few of us in Singapore. For
some reason, this is not a very popular hobby
here. Maybe it is because not many people can
spare the time to build up the necessary armies
and terrain. I won't pull any punches - it does
take a lot of time, but as you can see, the
results more than make up for the time spent!
is miniature wargaming? Basically, it is the
recreation of battles on any flat surface
(usually a tabletop) using miniature soldiers.
Terrain is represented on the tabletop any way
you want. Some people build elaborate and very
realistic looking hills, forests, roads, rivers
and towns. Others just use coloured pieces of
paper/cardboard to represent terrain.
the troops move and fight on the tabletop is
governed by an appropriate set of rules. The
battles recreated need not be Napoleonic battles.
In fact, there are very active groups of
wargamers for every historical period. We also
wargame other periods - such as Ancient,
Medieval, and WW2.
