Chang­ing of the Guard with The Life­guard at Foot  Amalien­borg 1809

From the start of the Soci­ety, there has been a nat­ur­al con­nec­tion between the inter­est in mil­i­tary his­to­ry, includ­ing weapons and uni­forms, and the war game, which orig­i­nat­ed in tra­di­tion­al offi­cer train­ing. Already in the com­pa­ny’s ear­ly years, mod­el pro­duc­tion and paint­ing, of the then pop­u­lar 30mm flat shapes, devel­oped into an impor­tant activ­i­ty. Ini­tial­ly, the rules of the war game were sim­ple, but over time they went into detail, and the games them­selves could last up to sev­er­al days. The fig­ure range for both exhi­bi­tion use and games has since grown in scope; and the pos­si­bil­i­ties of work­ing with and using fig­ures that rep­re­sent Den­mark’s wars have reached a high lev­el of quality.

The pro­duc­tion of fig­ures is large­ly com­mer­cial, but also pri­vate and indi­vid­ual. The main mate­ri­als for the fin­ished fig­ure are tin, resin and plas­tic, but the tra­di­tion­al fir­gur is a tin fig­ure or tin soldier.

The fig­urine types, which are often exhib­it­ed, are the tin fig­ure — large or small, as well as the toy and war game fig­ure. The big fig­ures are very con­spic­u­ous because there will be real­ly many work­ing hours in reach­ing the desired result. The some­what small­er toy and war game char­ac­ters are well suit­ed to illus­trate the mass effect of mil­i­tary action.

The fig­ure theme is includ­ed as a per­ma­nent theme in the mem­ber meet­ings, and the Soci­ety annu­al­ly orga­nizes a fig­ure com­pe­ti­tion. From time to time, the Soci­ety mem­bers par­tic­i­pate in exhi­bi­tions of mod­el fig­ures and dioramas.
