Lots more great pics.  Always nice to see such good looking games.  I do like that hill with the cliffs at the side.

Table was 4ft by 6ft.
We had 4 players and an umpire.
Worked well with the FFOL Bigger Battle rules.

Someone was asking about the hills.
Well they come from Poland. I think the firm are called terrain4games.
Got to be honest, I really wanted some nice mountains and hills for this type of game, ie Back of Beyond.
I bought their big pack of hills and mountains.
Probably the most expensive item of scenery Iíve bought for gaming, but really nice and really effective. Very happy with them.

That's a great looking game. I love your tank movement rules too: bringing a nice level of risk and uncertainty.

Tell me about it.
I owned the tanks, and was about to get my RAC breakdown cover card out.

If Flatpack won't go to the Mountains...
The Mountains must (have) come to Flatpack. ::)

Splendid looking game! Very inspirational. What's the "ground" made out of on your table? It looks like some sort of textured cloth or heavy paper, I'm very curious.
