Terrain Building Sets by MORGOMA

MORGOMA battle field with figures

Under the name "Das Kampffeld" (The Battle Field) the company MORGOMA has produced terrain kits with terrain parts with which a very realistic battlefield for figures of 7cm size can be built. Positions and combat stations are built into the terrain and not placed on it. MORGOMA has taken this circumstance into account with its terrain parts. Because almost all parts can be combined well, there are countless possibilities to create an individual trench system with bunkers and artillery positions. Thus figures can be presented in a realistic environment. Unfortunately, original off-road kits and even individual parts from MORGOMA are offered relatively rarely, so it might be difficult to build a larger battlefield with original parts.

Manufacturer Moritz-Gottschalk Marienberg

The company Moritz-Gottschalk was a factory of fine wooden toys and children's military articles based in Marienberg Erzgebirge, Germany. The brand name Morgoma is composed of the first letters of Moritz Gottschalk Marienberg. The company produced wooden toys from 1873 to 1943. The company became well known for its doll's houses, doll's houses and shops. After the end of the Second World War, production was resumed within the framework of the GDR toy combine Vero and only finally stopped after the end of the GDR in 1990.

Terrain Parts

Leaflet Terain Building Set

A MORGOMA leaflet mentions 23 different terrain components which are available both in the four boxes and individually. To let the trenches and shelters into the terrain, the surface is simply raised by approx. 6 cm. This makes it possible to create a realistic battlefield in which the positions do not protrude from the terrain.

Unfortunately, there are no contemporary sources to compare the price of the field with the corresponding Lineol or Hausser terrain parts. Presumably, however, the prices were similar.

Single Terrain Parts

Bunker K/15

Winding trench with barb wire and exit K/11

Most terrain parts have a square base of approx. 15 cm side length. The side walls are approx. 6 cm high so that they can be joined together seamlessly. In total there are 21 different parts of this size.

Double Terrain Parts

Regiment Headquarters K/22

Additionally there are two terrain parts with a rectangular shape, whereby the longer side is twice as long with approx. 30 cm as the side of the simple terrain parts. So these parts can be inserted into the battlefield instead of two simple parts.

International Terrain Parts

Regiments Headquarters K/22

Obviously MORGOMA has also exported these building kits abroad. At least for the Regiments Headquarters K/22 there is a version with French lettering. Whether this or other terrain parts with a label in other languages existed is not known at the moment. Probably there was an English version at least.

Example Battle Fields

With the figures of the 7cm size of Lineol and Hausser this battlefield comes to life. Impressive is the scene in which the soldiers run through the trench to the front lines. Here you can clearly see the advantage that this type of terrain of MORGOMA has over the terrain of Hausser or Lineol, because it seems much more realistic.
