Re: Normandy Terrain

For standing crops you could use the old doormat technique or one of the mats available to railway modelers. If you cut out the centre section and then cut that in a grid effect and base the edge on something thin like Plastikard, then you can have sections in or out dependant on where your troops a...

Re: MONTY'S WARGAMING WORLD

Well, I have done the first full size prototype of the mats and it's good news all round. It seems to have worked well, although road testing is required, and it has also been less expensive to make than feared, so I am pretty confident they will be less than £100 when they go on sale. Pics on my Fl...

6 PANZER - STALINGRAD

Hi,

I'm looking to build a series of CoC scenarios based on 6th Panzer's drive to link up with the Stalingrad garrison - anyone know any good books or maps?

Many thanks,

Re: NORTHERN LARD

Thank you and absolutely agree. Lard has revolutionised and revitalised my gaming, which I enjoy now more than ever, I just hope I may be able to bring some more to the pleasure that is the way of the Lard.

Re: MONTY'S WARGAMING WORLD

Hi Topi, Many thanks - I've also had others say the same about the text but it looks fine to me in Firefox and Chrome, so I'm really not sure what's going on with that. I shall have to look into it some more. As for price on the mats, hard to say as the key is what the market will bear. Based on mat...

I am using my own "Skinny Bases" available from www.montyswargamingworld.co.uk. I have my rank and file on 15mm squares and the leaders on rounds and I am very happy with them - there are pictures on the website. Given that these bases lack weight, the only thought I have is of going up to 20mm squa...
