When the difficult terrain competition is finished (or rather, when I am knocked out) I will post more pictures here.

Here are pictures from 6th June which I forgot to post.

Here is my entry for BSC 2021 Hamburger Hill.
This is approximatly 120cm x 60cm (4ft x 2ft). Three XPS foam panels are mounted on a wooden easel.


Here is the view from the US side. Figures are Empress and Gringos


The to section has MG bunkers with removable lids.


Here two US soldiers in the centre try to make their way up the hill. Around the edges there are 4 NVA.

Spectacular slope!

I have no idea how you'd manage to game on that though, but I am sure you did. :)

Did you ever get any games on it?

I have not played a game on it yet. I do not have an opponent locally and there are few international visitors. I will do a solo test game - I will play the US Army and The NVA will be on some sort of random activation with simple programmed actions.

I am going to improve the grass. I recently bought a flocking machine and various types of static grass fibre-I will post more pictures when that is completed,.
