Very nice. Guessing 20mm? Your terrain is great, but looks to be made up of small squares. Must be fiddly to set up.

Thanks for your interest Fred. Yes, 20mm. The terrain is a matter of personal taste, of course, but suits me. I have always wanted to be able to produce as realistic terrain as I could, and model actual battlefields, but still with the need to make the terrain reconfigurable and usable for wargaming. This triad of realistic, reconfigurable and usable is in tension, but I'm happy with the result. The terrain is fiddly and slow to make, but I've always enjoyed modeling terrain as much as making military models. The board you see took a day to build, but, because it is on 50cm x 50cm boards, I can now 'slide' it, remove a row, and add a row, and then do the next part of the battle that occurred a little further west.
