Dawn Raid (part 2) - Boxer Rebellion 15mm

This blog post is part 2 of 5 for the Dawn Raid Scenario featuring my 15mm Boxer Rebellion collection. See part 1 for scenario details.

Boxers: Mostly Irregular and Frontier Figures
Imperials: Old Glory, Frontier, and Irregular
Internationalists: Irregular, Old Glory, Minifigs, and Frontier.

Buildings and ships by the talented Mal Wright
Fortress by Eric (me)
Water: window tinting from Lowes.

Great shot from the Italo-American assault position.


Harbor patrol sampan with bow gun. Chinese main guns in the bastions



Since this is a dawn raid, the Chinese are mostly in their barracks. Three gun sections, and 2 battalions of Imperial Chinese infantry are in the black fortress.

Nice view of the harbor. The allied Naval Commander (Eric Cottrell) will be assaulting the black fortress via long boats. Gutsy move!

Even before dawn the harbor is clogged with ships and goods.

The DRAGON GATE is a symbol of power to all visitors. The Russians and British command will be assaulting from this direction.

More harbor shots.

here you can see the market and shops of the wharf area.

More photos to come, plus OOB.

Thanks Paul, I made the fort based on some plans from an old issue of the Courier.

The Dragon Gate looks excellent! Is that scratch-built as well?

Eric Burgess said...

Hi Stuart, yes the Dragon Gate is scratch built with Dragons bought from a local Asian store and glued onto the structure.
