Battlegroup Market-Garden at Bovington

Postby Piers » 04 Jul 2017

Two games... day 1 was the Borders at Heelsum game, then day 2 was changed as the cafe was ready, so we went to KOSB defending the landing zones for change of scenery...

The terrain is awesome. Its also achievable for the normal wargamer and shows that investing in the ground and making that look nice sets off everything else

A little time and effort is all it takes as well as a eye for the details that matter,and simple terrain well presented :thumbsup: Piers use of sponge foliage is very clever,he has a large plastic box full that he uses for hedges etc. Very versatile.

Piers, I love the feeling imparted by those new Dutch buildings - excellent.

Can I ask what you have used for the cobblestone roads - they look excellent as well.

Thanks

Great job all round. It is not over done and great choice for the roads and buildings - been to the actual ground many times and this takes me back. Top notch Sir!

I am fairly sure the roads are from Battlefront. It's all the rest of it that amazes me. Truly remarkable. So realistic. :-)
