Just posted up pictures that inspired my efforts for building my terrain for my French and Indian War stuff (to play Muskets and Tomahawks). These pictures are from a local guy (Matt) who does some great AWI (and ACW) games at the area conventions.

See the pictures on my blog here: link

Beautiful and very inspiring.

Amazing stuff!

I see the British player opted to spend some points on the Dr. Pepper special event. Hopefully the Americans didn't buy the Pop Rocks counter measure.

Awesome….just awesome. Love the blog too so I had to join it.

Why in the world would you go to all the trouble of presenting a beautiful table, with beautifully painted miniatures and then ruin the whole thing with those play cards?

Here's my favourite F&IW table. Wish it was mine though!!

Great, thanks for sharing, was interested in both the scenics and the table size.

Really nice.

@bruntonboy: That is one spectacular table … very impressive! I'll be saving those pictures to my library :-)

@normsmith: 4x6' table setups for Matt's games. His trees are a collection of many brands from throughout the years. His roads are by "Wizard Craft Modular Terrain" ( – the same place I got my roads from (note you need to static grass them and do an extra brown highlight from the base product to get them to look like Matt's and mine). Buildings are older Armorcast as I recall … can't get those anymore to my knowledge (same with the stone walls). Corn Fields are custom … all those "leaves" of the corn stalks are rubber bands … painstaking process as I understand it.

Awesome. What are the cards used for?

What are the cornfields made out of?

Very nice. :-)

@historygamer: Cards are for the game "Brother Against Brother" … which uses cards to activate units. The cornfields are made out of rubber bands cut to form the leaves of the stalks.

Rubber bands…why didn't I think of that?

sotek48603 Dec 2012 1:53 p.m. PST

I think those are Lemax fences … Made to look nicer of course.
