Re: Mid-century urban board

Yeah, that's 100% American and will be only appropriate for battles on the US mainland. But damn, that is one hell of a gorgeous US mainland! I'm fairly sure I've seen movies which didn't have such beautiful buildings. If I got things right, your first idea was to go for Italy? At first, I'd have s...

Re: Mid-century urban board

I like the theater. You could always play a Jap para force landing in a West Coast town what if scenario. Thanks Truscott. The more I look at things I create, the more issues I seem to see. Although in the picture the theatre is not fully complete I think I will give it another dry brush or two to ...

Re: Mid-century urban board

Yeah I am thinking about it, I haven't yet attached the bases to the buildings so I could easily put a more flexible shape as the base. Could be a quick project to do later on once I get sick of the layout!

Re: Mid-century urban board

To make the spaces for the buildings I used the MDF sprue to form a frame (and then filled in around it). Therefore each spot only fits the designated building and that means little to no modularity :(

I have learnt a lot in making this one though!

Re: Massacre of the Acqui - Scooner sized campaign for Chain of Command - Parts 1-9

No worries, I will try and fix the labelling issue (although I am not the best with all this tech stuff). Thanks again for your interest, if you play the campaign let me know how it goes! Also apologies for the delay on my original response I was out of the country for some time and was not checking...

Re: Massacre of the Acqui - Scooner sized campaign for Chain of Command - Parts 1-9

I've now reread the campaign and still think it'll be an interesting and very different game. I do have a question though: You state that it is an eight-rung campaign but you don't give any information on the scenarios/battles. Apparently both sides have a headquarters at respective ends of the lad...

Looks like a nice start.
I'd suggest just break some of the edges with a file, it stops them being too perfect and looking like MDF buldings.
Thanks Rich, good idea. I might have a look at that technique for the theatre that is sitting unpainted and unassembled.
