African project so far, the river

African project so far, the river


So the large battle for the Masai tribe and Wahehe are still being painted up , trying to get it all ready for the 17 September for the big game day at the Victorian Steel outpost, its going to be East Africa, riverboat needs to be created for the Germans, its now needs a African foot bridge creating with two hills on each side and plenty of jungle.


Table is 12ft by 6 ft, , first used spray adhesive, then placed the flooring soft vinyl, when placing you really do need to get it perfect, this was done in 3 pieces, slowly work from the middle and slightly push outwards to get rid of those bubbles.

The boards we already worked on, we can have this river wide or narrow as this picture shows, we can also create a beach landing by removing one riverside, WWII maybe

Still not got it right to the quality we want, but i hope wargamers pick up on this idea, rather than just placing top rivers sections on boards, with this idea you could even remove all the boards and place hills on the water and have sea battles, its simple and just gives you that more about wargaming.

Still have lots of work to do, a footbridge and grass tuffs around the riverbanks, could even build a habour or a jetty, the world of wargaming just opens up eh !

I like the way the river is coming along - a very simple, yet effective idea
