Well it works for the patrol phase and deployment. measurement needs a bit of fudge but not too big a problem as units have no maximum range and even in 6mm the board is still only 3.6km across.

👍 Likewise a big fan of 6mm scale. I'm doing everything in this size going forward.

I only acquire stuff in 6 mm so this plus CoC has me very intrigued. CoC is very much about troops in buildings. Difficult as almost all 6 mm buildings are solid as are yours.

Aside from removing such troops to off table representations, using paper or card buildings, either temporarily or for all structures, using something akin to pizza pie supports to hold troops (above) solid buildings or leaning the stands against the buildings the troops occupy I am looking for other ideas on dealing with this issue. I have seen most "solutions" and CoC makes a lot of use of troops in buildings, but I have yet to see a truly good solution. Quickly reviewing your blog shows troops avoiding entering buildings. How do you (and others) handle this issue? Thank you in advance.

In the images on the blog the troops directly behind the building are in fact inside them. With small scales you can use 2 representations for each building, 1 for troops in and another no troops. In common gameplay the usual solution is to stack models in around or on top of a building and say they are inside. Shooting is from windows and entry through doors and possibly windows so exactly where each model is supposed to be does not matter.

Got it. Thank you.
