Hi all,

Here's a photo dump from the 2 games of CoC that I ran Saturday at Cold Wars. I was tucked away in HO-1 down a hallway with some guest rooms, so doubtful it will end up in anyone's "Convention AAR".

Two great groups of players made for a great day. Hopefully this link works.

Very nice. 28mm? Who makes the buildings? How did you make your roads? Thanks for sharing

Thanks all.

saltflats1929, it is 28mm, the buildings are from Grand Manner, and the roads I made by photoshopping a PDF from Wargame Vault and then printing them on a fleece blanket from Walmart Photo (same thing for the mat). They're pretty versatile and cost effective.

Thanks for posting. I am just getting into Chain of Command and would have liked to have seen this game. Beautiful table – those Grand Manner buildings must have set you back a pretty penny.

Great looking game!

Walmart Photo -- I'm aware of it but would appreciate more info. I see the roads are separate. Did you create a full blanket design of multiple roads then cut? What image format and resolution does Walmart require? Thanks.

Game looks much better than some/most that were in Distlefink…I'd also be interested in the Walmart Phot process…

Chain of Command?!? There were CoC games at Cold Wars?

How did I miss them – searched the PEL for anything Chain of Command a few weeks before the con and came up with NADA.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks again all.

Lord Hollier, my submission was late so thus the absence in the PEL and my game's location.

I've had enough questions about the fleece printing process that I'll put together a "how-to" on my blog and post it here when finished.

Stay tuned…
