Liberty Or Death! As the continental armies march to oppose British rule, militia are recruited from towns far and wide, but battles are not always fought upon open fields. Lets have a look at some of the fantastic terrain from Sarissa Precision, 4Ground and Renedra that you can use to add objective twists to your campaigns:

Starting with the fantastic starter box set ‘Liberty or Death’, aside from the huge amount of plastic figures from Wargames Factory you also get some great terrain in the form of 4Grounds Block House and Pickett Fences:


Block House

This highly detailed laser cut wooden wargames model makes an ideal objective or terrain piece for The French Indian Wars, The War Of Independence and The War Of 1812-15.

Small Blockhouses were often the first line of defence and last bastion of hope until relief, many were built at strategic locations like the banks of major waterways to observe and, if they had even a single cannon, hinder enemy movements.

A Blockhouse could be of a simple rustic construction made by local militia, but this one is much more than that; built by the regular army, a crow’s nest gave even further horizons to observe and a cannon could be raised and lowered through the stout central trap door to shoot through the gunports in any direction and at two elevations.


Pickett Fence


This highly detailed laser cut wood terrain is typical of the kind of fencing for the period, an excellent obstacle to infantry this sets gives you over 3 and a half feet (107cm) of fencing to create your battlefield.




Liberty Or Death gives you 3 highly detailed resin Gabions to entrench your artillery. Time to open fire and smell the Black Powder!
