Chain of Command at MOAB 2017

Postby oozeboss » Sun Sep 10, 2017 7:58 am

For those of you not on the Chain of Command or Chain of Command in Australia Facebook pages, I just thought that I'd share this link to a wondrous example of TO John Bonds artistry, being one of the tables on which Chain of Command will be played at MOAB this year:

And yes, he makes all his own buildings and trees, and Lord knows whatever else. It has our Chain of Command community buzzing right now, so I think that it's only fair to share it with all of you.

Pretty good set up, is it a 6' x 4' playing area?

Yes, the table is 6' x 4', and is one of 5 that John has prepared for the event (being Chain of Command, it won't be your usual "competition" or "championship"). The buildings, trees and assorted terrain has been scaled for 28mm figures, and John has a highly informative (occasional) blog at http://iagsmgm.blogspot.com.au/2017/05/chain-of-command-event-at-moab-2017.html.

We're getting some pretty significant sponsorship coming on board as well, so we are set to have a set of very happy campers come Saturday fortnight.
