Battlegroup Market Garden Weekend at Deeside Defenders

Fought over the weekend at the Airbus Sports & Social club on Deeside. Friday afternoon was spent setting up the terrain for the game and here it is from South (just beyond Eindhoven) to North (Arnhem). Note a few more buildings were added early on Saturday https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-gkQrgo_y7Gc...

Re: Airfix Classics - all on one page

An interesting selection, but some like the Churchill could do with having the moulds refurbished. Also does the half track have the cover included?

Re: Hell's Highway

Another batch of terrain completed and it was actually in use last weekend. It comprised more canals including bends, some road junctions and a pair of canal bridges. https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-qIj15tuVM1g/WvLkz7d-7_I/AAAAAAAAT3I/-UGO0rrnx8QXwf4YruMlpe5qAnrVFpf6gCLcBGAs/s800/DSC05910.JPG Here's some...

Re: HAMMERHEAD THIS SATURDAY

Shame, it's just a bit to far from Chester to make a day trip. It's a great show.

Re: Hell's Highway

Some more rework, this time a very old ditched road and stream I created for a refight of Lutzen 1632. Finding it in the bottom of a drawer was a light-bulb moment - just the job for Hell's Highway. The ditch was reduced in size and the whole thing textured and painted. The stream has become a canal...

Smashing work mate, can`t wait to see photos of the game :D Any chance of a "how to" on the barbed wire Will?? Quite simple, lolly stick for the base, matchsticks glued on with a hot glue gun. Paint PVA on the base and sprinkle with sand/grit mix. Wash with dilute PVA to fix. Then terrain...

Hell's Highway - updated 9/5/18

As part of getting ready for the Battlegroup Market Garden weekend next month I've started on some extra terrain for the tables. First off some barbedwire fences which are all new build, whereas the old Airfix windmill which, has seen some service over the years, has now been repaired and rebased. T...

Re: 1/72 scale and 15 mm vehicles

It's a gaming system, so go with whatever suits you and your opponents. Certainly Zvezda has applied this approach for its Art of Tactic rules. What maybe an issue is that in reality there are more vehicles involved than just the towing trucks, so the footprint of a 20mm tow may better represent the...
