That is too cool!!!

Not yet, but I do have a fog machine to set the mood for various games and scenarios.

Can't think of this on 4.5m long table….

Yep. Used it in a Weird WWII game and also as volcano smoke in a Skull Island game.

Not like in the pic.

I used a Halloween dry ice fog maker at one end of a table for a film noir scenario once. It was painful to use and blocked that end of the table. Nice effect, though, and it was fun. If I do it again, I would want to put it under the table and run vents to the tabletop.

Looks cool for a diorama, but I don't use any weather in a wargame. Games are complicated enough without introducing weather phenomena into the mix.

If I ever need smoke or fog I just throw bits of cotton around the table. Easier and cheaper than this craziness, though it is pretty cool craziness.

huh?

That is indeed very cool craziness. I wouldn't do it, not being particularly technically inclined, but I enjoy looking at it.

That doesn't look like fog, that looks like a strip club.

When ever I see one of these huge Dwarven Forge style sets, all I can think of is how much money someone spent.
I have several times over the years looked at picking some sets up, and it seems to me that as the years go by, the prices go up just enough to keep them out of my reach, sigh.

Me too, used it for Halloween party my daughter had when she was 16, Ohhh, the problems trying to get all my smoke detectors turned off and calling the alarm company to try to explain my stupidity and finally trying to get all that Sh*t out of my house.

Games are complicated enough without introducing weather phenomena into the mix.

Check out A Season in Hel. Simple to implement and fast to play weather using bounded pseudo random design.
