The hills have been finished for months but we finally were able to organise everybody to play the game.

As a bonus, the game was hosted by a fellow who has turned his basement into a war museum:

More pictures and info on my blog.

Great looking game! I don't know how you managed to play it though I would have constantly been out in that trench line ensuring that the Germans were not sneaking through the wire.

Hills look great!

And nice to have a full size trench around.

I agree. That looks like my future manacle (trench) when I retire.

Great looking game and museum. He should charge $5 USD at the door just to step inside.

An impressive museum and gaming table. That is quite the military history ambiance for a war game.
Thanks for sharing the photos.

Thank you guys; it was a great time. With 8 players at the table there was lots to look at and read when you weren't in the thick of the action. We will probably plan some more games there.

Nicely done! What a great place to game

Great-looking table! The buildings aren't quite appropriate, but the hills, grass, roads, etc. are amazing!
