Very, very pretty! Have you considered a VERY light flocking… like, just a sprinkle… when you are set up? It might make the already-barely-noticeable joint lines totally invisible? Love the trees… fall trees on game tables are underappreciated!

That is the plan to cover any remaining trace.

Nice.. How large is the table?

My table is 5'X10". The Hastings modules are 4'X10'.


I designed them to be 4' because that is pretty much the standard depth for a Triumph battle in this size and scale. Plus it allows people to reach the center. It is slightly shorter that than the standard 12' length because it fits my table and this battle does not need the additional 2 feet on the ends. The flanks are secured by the terrain.

Very nice. I'll need to stop over and see it that Saturday.
