Beautiful table. Nice to see an AWI table that really looks like the time and place.

Where did you get the buildings?

Beautiful set-up, Jim. I'm going to have to come over to the US again at some point and get a game in with you!

I think that the Crown forces and their followers will be happy with the outcome of this battle. I have posted the game report on my blog and on another TMP thread.

The buildings and fences and taller trees were made by Herb Gundt (who sadly, is retired from the model making business, for now.).

The terrain mat was made by The Terrain Guy in Texas (again, sadly, out of the business).

The rounder looking trees that you see on the terrained bases are from K&M which is located in the UK but their range is carried by a number of companies in the US.

I made my own road modules using plastic as the underlay, spackel wall board paste for the terrain part and various Woodlands Scenics flock material.

Going forward, I will probably start using Grand Manner buildings from the UK whenever I need to add more AWI buildings. I recently bought their Guilford Courthouse log cabins and they are very nice models and the service is very fast.

I bought the Grand Manner tavern model and I was disappointed that they seem to be more of a true 25mm instead of 28mm.

Very nicely done!
