Sweet looking table.
Love the figures.
Again like everyone else, the mountains are great.
A wise investment.
May I ask,"where did you purchase your roads?"
I am looking for some that look like that.

Many thanks for the nice remarks.
The roads came as pre-cut midfield from supremelittleness.co.uk.
I then covered them in studio acrylics modelling paste high density.
Then base coated in dark drown, and highlighted a couple of shades, then some grass areas added.
Hope this helps.

Many thanks
Chinese building comes from Warbases.
It built well, and a simple paint job got it to the table quickly.
The walls around it are just made from cork tiles, and come in useful in many periods.

Now where are the enemy ?

To be honest, I nicked the idea of the flight stand, from other ‘more cleverer’ people on this web site.
I used a plastic/disposable wine glass, so that I didn’t get in trouble with the wife for using her crystal glasses. Oh la la.

Nice aircraft and I might pinch the flight stand idea too.  What aircraft is it?

I believe it's an Airco DH2? Could be wrong!

 :o :o Superb idea!

...and a French suggestion to improve it:

Put the glass the other way. Half fill it up with red wine. The enemy player drinks it when the plane goes down.  lol lol

Yes it’s a DH2.

Nice ideas with the half filled glass by the way.
