Good idea and a nice result.

Your blog has some interesting articles too.

Thanks for sharing.
I know you're too old to play with toy soldiers. So give them to me... NOW!

Excellent - a wargamer is always on the lookout for everyday items to use.

Well done, I like the result quite a lot.
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

Inspired by Eric the Shed I went and bought some of these.

The tiles are 12 inch by 12 inch but they do have a thin lighter blue boarder to them but overall they look great and the self adhesive quality is a bonus.

I am very pleased with the result thanks Eric :-*
