Must have been quite difficult to do this in what I would call 20mm. Weapon ranges even for machine guns would be very short of the order of 1 to 1 1/2 ft on table and rifle ranges more like 4" (300m ish). I would have thought 1/144 or even 6mm would have made it easier.

Nice to see the real map and your interpretation.

Thanks team for the comments.
UshCha I didn't have any particular difficulties using 20mm. I use Command Decision rules; like most rules sets I know, it uses scale compression to allow play on a reasonable size surface. Command Decision uses a scale of 1:2000, so that 5cm = 100m. A rifle fires to a maximum range of 30cm/12" or 600m, with effective range 15cm/6" or 300m, which seems about right. It wouldn't make any difference if the scale of the models changed; the scale compression would be the same. The only difference is the aesthetics and that is a personal choice.
Thanks for your comments on the use of the actual map; all of my scenarios share this feature so that you can see how my tables relate and also so you can use your own terrain system to represent the terrain.
Thanks for your support.
