Kis Megyer

Good day everyone, I am trying to create a games table based around the Kis Megyer farm during the battle of Raab (Gyor). I have been in touch with some Hungarian gamers and have been directed to a site that shows the farm and church on the hill.

My problem is I have seen other maps showing the stream and road but the map I have is a bit unclear.

Can anyone advise me of where the stream and roads are on the attached map and any other details such as do the dots represent trees

Each rectangle is 1200mm x 600mm. The length of the entire board will be 3.6m this representing game scale of 864m ... 0cd3bd.jpg

OK, the roads and streams are easily identified but the dots and other marks I am not sure of.

The top road could be lined with a wall or a hedge or trees. The other blobs could also be trees.

Any suggestions please let me know.

Should be a nice table mate.

No nothing about the battle though. :shock:

I have read a few OOB for the Austrians at Raab and each are fairly similar. One unit consisted of a detachment of the 9th Jager, the Reuss Greitz scharfschutzen and the Componi Grantz. So my question, does anyone know who and what type of uniform was worn by the:

Reuss Greiz sharpshooter or Reuss Greitz scharfschutzen

and "Componirtes" or Componi Grantz

The closest I can come to Componi Grantz is Ghent (Gantz) so possibly these could be Dutch/Netherland Freikorp or it could also be a Grenz (Granitz or Granz)

Did you have any luck in regards to the map?

Have you checked google maps to see if any of the existing roads roads or trees are around? With any luck the area hasn't been bulldozed to make a concrete town.

Dropbear, the area is now an outer suburb of the city of Gyor but the granery is still standing. I have some info on the area from a gamer in Hungary. He has suggested the type of roads and lining them with hedges. Also the stream he said was only about 2m wide and 1 m deep.
