Quite, utterly, gorgeous!

On top of the beauty, this is the type of scenario(s) my group has been waging over the past couple of years advance guard forces and flanking maneuvers coming into contact with the enemy.

With 28mm figures, and on most gamer's tables, this is the size of engagement that makes a lot of sense. They're not tourney matches, but clashes that can be, and are mission-based, and represent small force actions that occurred all the time during war… the crossroads, across the bridge, over the cornfields.

In this regard, such games are drawing on the history of hundreds of such skirmishes, but they allow the players to write their own history too……down on the farm.

Great looking game. The scenario is very reminiscent of Buford's actions on the first day at Gettysburg.

This is a gorgeous looking game on a gorgeous looking table.
A few questions about the table:
1. What are its dimensions?
2. Are there two smaller tables pushed together? If so, are they secured to each other?
3. Is this home built or a commercial product?
