Moroccan battles in miniature

Here's one for my wargamer readers. I've just done two guest blogs for Black Gate about a pair of fascinating dioramas I discovered in the American Legation museum in Tangier. Built by master modeller Edward Suren of London, these battle scenes are incredibly detailed. They include the Battle of the Three Kings (1578) and the Battle of Tondibi (1591). I've included lots of pictures and background about both battles.


  1. Very cool! I just finished reading up your entry on Black Gate.


  2. I wish I would have kept all the war pieces I had when I was a kid. Maybe they're sill in my parents basement.
