1/56 Cornfields

Well you can never have too much terrain. Saw a tutorial for making cornfields in the ACW Gamer Ezine for 54mm figures and adapted it to 1/56. Not perfect but it certainly looks okay and costs very little...it uses those twisting ties like on some bread bags... A (poor) photo of my Zouaves in the co...

VSF Christmas AAR 2018 - A Christmas Tree Too Far

Over Christmas it was time for the yearly FUBAR VSF action! In this game I tried to pack as many steam powered machines onto the tabletop that I could! There was everything from Flyers to Automatons... Late 1878 and in an effort to end the First Great Steam War before Christmas the British launched ...

Re: First French Brigades for Blucher

90 x 60 wow allows for a lot of diorama type basing. Your games should look good! Looking forward to seeing some game pictures.

I tried 80 x 40 and 80 x 50 (with the latter the last 10mm of depth was for a unit details strip) I discounted both as too big for my usual 1800 x 1200 table top.

Re: First French Brigades for Blucher

Nice stuff! Lovely...

You’ve changed to ‘full’ large bases now for these?

Working on a Waterloo game with my mates we’re going to use 40x20 (generally) Brigade bases with the units details off board on a sheet that’ll allow us maximum use of our tabletop.

A bit of work with those conversions! Did you ‘pin’ parts like the heads and arms for extra strength? This topics not my cup of tea but I appreciate the work that’s gone in here to get such good looking figures!
