SALUTE 2005: Megablitz terrain

When Wargame Developments was asked to put on a game at SALUTE 2005, Tim Gow and I decided that a demonstration game that featured MEGABLITZ would be ideal. We therefore split the task into two parts. He provided the troops (US and German) and provided the terrain.

I think that this was the first time that terrain had been specifically built for a MEGABLITZ game, and I created it from a combination of MDF (used for the base boards), cork tiles (used to create the hills and the river), paint (Dulux emulsion for the base colour and different 'matchpots' for the river, fields, roads, and built-up areas), and flock in a variety of different colours.

The resultant terrain looked like this:

    I hope that Tim Gow will also share his photographs of the terrain and the game in due course.

    Thank you very much for the compliment. I think that the effort I put into making the boards was well worth it.

    All the best,

  7. Chris,

    I passed the boards over to Tim Gow … who may well still have them.

    All the best,
