So, after boring you all to tears with my construction project, I put a table together and laid out a game. I think that it turned out rather well. Take a look and feel free to opine!
I added the roads, my new hills, my refurbished trees
and some lovely buildings that I had picked up at local Cons
then I added a few Lace Wars miniatures to splash some color around
from this angle the column of marching troops seems endless
but, in reality, it is just three battalions long
the opposing army waits, supported by its big guns
it seems that one of the gunners is tipsy
the classic poplar lined road
the local militia try to stave off the enemy regulars long enough for the cannon to do their work
the attack column has just discovered that their flank march isn't going top be a surprise
the view of the table from the other end
the guns and gunners are from RAFM , the infantry are Wargames Factory
With troops on it the terrain looks quite effective. It is highly functional and is designed to fit into paper boxes, oh and it is durable and cheap.
Ideas, threats, etc are welcome in the comments section.
