Wait… your WIFE "found something for your war game table…" ??

do you live in another universe?

Is she an android and did you program her?

Did you guys JUST -like 3 days ago- get married (the reality of your hobby has not sunk in yet)

Does she have any sisters of hobby-bearing age?

I hit the aquarium section of stores every once in awhile to see if I can find anything useful. You did a nice job on this.

for water on your table top use a shiny Blue Color Sea Ocean Fish Tank Aquarium Background Seascape Poster Wall ..get one without fish and its shiny and shimmers. Great for Caribbean waters.

Looks good! Well done with the wife. Garage and yard sales can yield some treasures. As can pet stores with aquarium terrain. : )

Amazon US seller "Blue Ribbon" has a plethora of wargameable aquarium ornaments. I have two ruined temples that I use for DBA camps. Happy shopping!

Is there ANY chance this lady can be cloned?

The only other guy I know w/ such luck, was a young sailor, no longer in our area.
He enjoyed RPG, she had no interest in the hobby, BUT loved Painting and happy to do it for him, and she was Good. Thanks to her, he had some of the best on any table.

It kind of looks like the bridge sold in some of the 54mm Marx Sets.

Nicely done.

There are a ton of great aquarium ruins out there and cheap/used is even better.
