Well, itís been decided that Iíll be putting on a Limehouse participation game for next years Salute (it was decided for me  lol). The basic layout is sorted and Iíll do a decent sketch of it soon enough but here is a basic start.

The idea is to have a narrow section of river at one end and a viaduct at the other with plenty of buildings and Ďstuffí in between. They are limiting the tables sizes for trader games next year to 6x4/6x5 which means Iíll be able to a decently detailed board in time.

First off is planning the river edge with wharves, part of a bridge and a slipway. There should be plenty of ins and outs to draw the eye and as many levels as possible (which wonít be that many unfortunately).

The bridge is a mock up but the stanchions will be the ones Iíll be using and the frontage will hopefully just sit up against the boards relatively seamlessly. The buildings arenít the ones that will be there in the final version but they will be on the board (somewhere).





There wonít be much else done on this for a little while, I just had to get a bit done tonight whilst the muse whacked me round the head  lol

It is coming out very nice! I'm sure the viaduct part of the table will be a catch-eye!

Looking fantastic. Are you going to plaster the walls with flyposters for music hall shows and penny dreadfuls like they did on Ripper Street?

Just not too sure about the floating bathtub... looks very playable, but possibly a little comical alongside what Iím sure will be a wonderfully realistic looking set of wharves and buildings?

Will the lentil cobblestones be making a reappearance?  :)

Plenty of posters, yes. The Ďbathtubí (gee, thanks  ::) lol)  is from the Mars project and wonít bethere in the day. Itís the only boat I have at the moment. I have the plans for a river barge and a coal barge and will endeavour to have realistic shipping there instead.

Possible lentils but will mainly be EPS foam setts  :)

Thatís looking great mate! Loving the bridge!  :-*

What about doing the river ar low tide? Most of it could be mud that characters could go through at a reduced pace? You could have a boat shored up on its side too.

Thought about that and itís a lot more work. Thereís going to be a slipway at the other end of the river section and Iíd like not to have it sticking out for a couple of feet  lol

A nice detailed layout with lots of little hidden details will look great.

And some Ghostbusters t-shirts for your players to wear, of course....
