Battlegroup Overlord 1/35
« on: September 27, 2018, 11:15:59 AM »
I'm mainly a 40mm AWI collector/gamer and my set up is based for colonial America . With a little   Improvisation (a bit short of Bocage ) , my side  line project  is Normandy 44. Love the Battlegroup rules and Piers great pics are very inspiring . His brilliance in getting atmosphere sets the bar . Certainly trying to get a more open feel than a Flames of War car park .
 With this scale you don't need a lot , trying to do  quality over quantity and bookeeping like ammo rules are reasonably easy , as you can loose markers .Also l like the impact that you can see the devastating advantage a Tiger has over a Cromwell , and the powderpuff M5s recon.   Thanks for having a butchers .

This is how the boards looks in there original form , mainly 40mm AWI.
So really a bit of modification .

Very impressive. How big is the table, so that you can fit on all those big 1/35 tanks?

What a a wonderful way to present this, ending up with that amazingly contoured table!

The models are excellent as are the figures.  A agree with all the positives above and think it's just extraordinary.
