That's pretty cool.

Where are the…oh, wait I see them: two 6's!

That is just so UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME!!!!

If you lift the roof off the little building on the little gaming table, is there an even smaller miniature gaming table inside?

PS: If my first thought was "the table is too big to reach the middle", does that make me a bad person…?

No, just someone with short arms (smile).

That's what I said! I had considered making a cheat sheet to lay on the table and maybe dice, too.

If you lift the roof off the little building

Heh, heh. Sure, as far as you know! :) I was happy I could get the talus to align and to only paint the top half of it. That was my limit.

the table is too big to reach the middle

I was thinking the same thing. I figured you could lean and stretch. My controlling concern for this and the other dioramas was more along the lines of whether or not it requires more than a standard move to get around.


These ones don't.


This one (made from the lid of the earbuds container) does.

Some of these look like they could be a different kind of miniature simulation:

Brilliant work. It would have to take more than one move to get around unless you make a will save not to slow down to appreciate it.

@Syrinx0 – That's a brilliant random event to happen!

It's historically inaccurate. There's an attractive woman near a gaming table.

The guy holding the (special) coffee is me and the lady opposing him is SWMBO. It's historically accurate from when she had short hair. I'm historically accurate from when I only had that much grey in my beard and ponytail.

So a war game board has a smaller war game going on inside it
And the smaller war game board has a even smaller game going on infinitum

Great job
