I've play on his tables before at a convention. Gorgeous terrain and figs. 54mm figs if I remember correctly, and the tree trunks are actually branches cut from trees and based.

Are those trunks and magnetized to the table? Otherwise they are bound to fall over. With perhaps a domino effect…

I've played his FIW games too, and they're almost exclusively with the collectible John Jenkins 54mm figs. I think the tree trunks are secured with screws and washers on the undersides of his cork mats. He's constantly refined his terrain kit over the years, and recently I've seen him use some teddy bear fur elements in his presentations. This week in an email exchange with some local buds, I used Cluck Amok's work as an example of what could be done as a Plains Indians or Apache Wars setup, using some of the 1/32nd scale plastic figs and terrain available as "Cowboys & Indians playsets" check Paragon Scenics for some inspiration. Instead, they want to stick to 28s, but I think the big stuff might work better for drawing interest at local shops and cons, and appear more accessible to John Q. Public [participation] than our traditional wargame figure scales do.

That is very cool, very effective. The color and texture of the cork works so well.

Thanks for he compliments, All! The bolt system I started with has been updated to magnets. Much easier to set up!
